Looking through old photos or taking a trot down memory lane with friends bring me back to a season of sweet fellowship and growth at FLBC. Since then, I have been attending the University of Northwestern – St. Paul where God has continued to prove His faithfulness in my life and blessings He provided through my time at FLBC.
Some people told me it would be a huge setback to go to Bible College. I thought I knew why I needed to go anyway and told myself God would honor my decision to put Him first. In reality—the only thing I truly needed was Jesus, to grow in my relationship with Him, and come to a better understanding of His love and faithfulness. Even if I attended for some of the wrong reasons, God used my decision for good and continues to do so.
I did not know how I would be able to afford college, but the Lord used the transfer scholarship at UNW to provide financially. During my second semester at UNW, I changed my major to Accounting, unsure of where that would take me. With one semester to go, I have a job lined up for after graduation and plan to begin studying for the CPA exam. One of the requirements for the CPA exam is that applicants must have at least 150 college credits—something not met with a four-year accounting degree. This leaves most accounting majors taking a semester or two of extra classes. Because I was able to transfer all of my credits from FLBC to UNW, I easily met the credit requirement. God cares about our careers and wants to use us in each role we have in life.
I did not know I wanted to be an accountant when I went to Bible College or even to UNW but God had a plan for me! FLBC did not set me back but rather helped propel me forward in more ways than I could have imagined. Romans 8:28 says, “And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” These are some of the ways God has been working for my good lately. I look forward to serving Him through my new vocation as an accountant in the days to come.
