The Rich Young Ruler

Recently the Lord has put my heart through a Saul-to-Paul transformation.  He has called me to sell my things and give my life to him.  For me, that means selling all of my possessions, which for so long defined my existence, and leave school to serve Him.  I am a junior here at Huntington University, and so with one year to go it sounds absolutely crazy! But, my God is a provider, and I would rather lose my life to find it in Him than try to find my life in the world.  I just need prayer for obedience, wisdom, and discernment.  Also, as I am going down this new path, I would love prayer that the Lord would continue to make his plans known to me.  Unlike the rich young ruler, I don't want to leave with a heart full of grief.  I want to fulfill the plans God has for me and my life.  Also, I am so afraid my parents are going to think I am crazy and be disappointed with me, so please pray that the Lord would fill their hearts with peace.  Thanks so much!

I will be praying for you!  It is wonderful when we can hear our Lord call on us to serve Him - being obedient to that call will be very rewarding to you one day I’m sure.  I pray for your strength to follow His call.  I will have your parents in prayer also - that they understand the Lord’s calling and how much it means to you.  God bless you on this journey!
