After 7 months of uncertainty, anxiety, and planning..I can finally relax and not worry- I am officially going to ETSU for the community counseling graduate program!

If there is anything that I have learned during this past year basically, it's that God definitely knows what He is doing! He knows exactly what's going to happen, and as long as we are in His will, we have nothing to worry about! I prayed specifically several times for Him to open and close doors for me, and He most definitely did. He closed the doors to two other grad schools, and gave me the desire (which I didn't have before) to stay at ETSU and pursue my Masters degree here. It's honestly really neat to see how God has changed my heart so much, He has taught me so much in this past year than ever, and I am amazed.

Graduation is about 4 weeks away, it just seems unreal. God has literally worked everything out for me though, everything has really fell in place in the last few weeks, and He has taught me to not worry,but to really just trust in Him in every area of my life. He promises us that He will always take care of us, and He always does.

I am so so so excited to take the next step to pursue my dream of being a counselor, and helping others. I have dreamed of this for so long! God, you are so good, thank you so much for your blessings!


  1. Congrats Rachel!!! I didn't know yet! :-O YAY!!!! I'm so proud of you!

    It's really true how God gives you that direction that you are so earnestly seeking. He just does it in His time, and I guess that helps us learn patience and how to trust in Him.

    I love you!!! See you soon, my dear!

  2. Aww thanks I love you too! See you next weekend :D
