He has an opinion.

Over my short 20 years of living, I have quickly learned that life is full  surprises. Just when I think I have gotten ahold of what's going on, or I get comfortable of where I am at, things change. I am convinced that the only constant in life is change and God. A part of truly being alive are those moments when character is testing and circumstances are altered, it will be those times when I will grow. I am stepping into a realm where my faith will have to carry me. It will be tough, stretching, and it might hurt without the support system that I have grown accustomed to all my life, but I am ready to jump into whatever God has for me next. Falling is easy, anyone can fall, it is that jump that requires strength of will. With the prayers from my friends and guidance and advice of my leaders, I came to the conclusion that that is where I am supposed to be. There was no right or wrong decision, it was simply a leap of faith. A revelation that I came to over the past couple of weeks is this: God may not be "All-Controling," but He does have an opinion, and I will still seek Him through my decision process. He has a say on my life, because I am no longer my own. I cannot just sing about giving Him my all, or say pretty prayers that I will do "whatever-it-takes." My actions and words need to match, too. So, I now align my heart, my future, and my dreams, whatever that looks like, to His Heart. Am I scared? Well, yeah, but I'm also excited. There is a valley of emotions that I feel at this moment- this is a new season of my life. A new season of growth and of change.
