End of a long week

I survived another long week of school and work. As of right now I am pulling B's in four of my classes, and an A in one. So far so good now if I can just keep it up for the rest of the semester. I'm in the process of planning my schedule for the next semester at least so far even though I have to take five classes again next semester my schedule is not as crazy, because I only have to go to school four days a week instead of five. 

I discovered a new way together home from school that takes me on scenic  tour that actually gets me home quicker and allows me to see some pretty neat sights.  Today I even had to stop and take some pictures, that I'll try to post later.

I broke down and finally brought a pair of boots I had been wanting for a while, but kept putting off. I've wanted a pair of Justin boots forever but kept putting off buying them, because I thought they were expensive. Turns out they are actually pretty reasonable. The pair I brought was way cheaper than the Lardo's I brought on Vacation one year. Which I've only worn a few times because they hurt my feet. But the Justin boot's have a J-flex flexible comfort system WITH REMOVABLE ORTHOTIC INSERT from  which is great for someone with fat feet. 
Here's the boots I ordered can't wait for them to get here.

1 Peter 5:7

Give all your worries to Him, because he cares for you.
1 Peter 5:7
I have to trust that I can give (cast) my worries to You, because You love me, and want the best for me. You have been a father to me when my earthly father couldn’t or wouldn’t be a father to me.
I also need to realize that when I give my worries to You; I need to stop worrying because You have it under control and covered by Your grace.

I’ve made it to midterms, hard to believe that the semester is all ready half over where did the time go? It seems just yesterday I started the first semester as a junior in college I only have about four more semesters if I go full time. Is what I plan on doing till I graduate, so that I can actually make it out of school in four semesters, or three and half if I go two summer terms.  
After much thought and prayer I have changed my major. I realized after two failed attempts at the nursing school entrance exam that nursing wasn’t what I wanted to do. The pre nursing math and science classes were too much stress for me. Plus the nursing path was what everyone else in my family wanted to do.  

I realize that I’ve always wanted to help people but not in the way that I was expected as a nurse. Instead I’ve changed my major to Criminal Justice with a minor in Psychology with a focus in youth crime. To make a difference in the teens that can still be and wan to be helped. I know that I am in for a world of hard work and stress. I know that I can do it with God and prayer; I finally feel like that is where God wants me to use my gifts.

Isaiah 1:18 NKJV

Come now, and let us reason together, says the Lord
1:18 Isaiah NKJV
Heavenly Father
     Help me to come to You first with the choices and decisions I have to make. Help me to remember to pray about everything and worry about nothing. If I need to talk about choices, decisions about the future help me to know which adult or friend will give me Godly advice not just what I want to hear.
In Jesus name Amen

Luke 18:27

Jesus answered, “The things impossible for people or possible for God.”
Luke 18:27
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me
Philippians 4:13
I don’t need easy I just need possible
Soul Surfer the movie 
Even though the Bible says all things are possible with God, doesn’t mean that it will be easy. However with God on your side then the impossible becomes possible. If it is God’s will for your life. Just like in the movie; as long as I have God I don’t need easy just possible.
