This was my train of thought today…
-Looking at my scarves, I said “Hey, that one! I wore that to my RA interview.”
-In my RA interview I said I wanted to work with freshman girls. I wanted the opportunity to make college SO fun for them.
-When I opened my RA acceptance letter, I was assigned to upperclassmen girls. This seemed a bit more challenging to me.
-Now, almost 3 months into the school year, I realized that the Lord totally knew what He was doing in placing me on the third floor.
As this chain of events passed through my head, I instantly thought. “God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28)
In being on the upperclassmen hall, I can be a real part of the wing. I can relate to the crazy schedule of being a junior or senior, I can understand roommate problems because I’ve been through it. I have a place of belonging because I too, am just like my girls. If I were in the freshmen hall, I do not doubt I would succeed, but I can see that I would be lonely, the lone upperclassmen on the hall. God has placed me in the exact spot He has called me to be for His purpose; the place that I will be able to best put my skills to work.
Pretty cool how things work out :].
