Well, the day I've been gradually working towards has arrived--much sooner than I expected. I am all moved in to the dorms here at NMSU and start classes today. Leaving home was very hard, but I can honestly say I'm at peace and I know this is where God wants me.
I didn't feel at all prepared to start school, but everything has worked out perfectly. I didn't know what I was doing, but God did. My roommate, Stephen, is a really cool guy, and we've enjoyed jam sessions and watching youtube late at night in the dorm. I've also met a lot of other people through the Christian Challenge program here, and I'm planning to go to their weekly worship service and freshman Bible study. A couple of guys there had us over to their house for dinner a couple nights ago so I got to know a lot of the leaders.
Anyway, this week has pretty much consisted of God reminding me, "relax. I'll take care of you." I still worry and doubt since I don't know what the future holds, but all I can do is pray that God will keep me on the path He's layed out for me. His plan for me so far has been better than anything I could've imagined or hoped for.
