Prayer and Chocolate...

Yes, chocolate and prayer. Something that I have been needing a lot of lately.
I've been going back and forth recently with the decision of returning to college. I loved college and it was an amazing time for me. I was able to grow so much spiritually, and I learned a lot. After coming home for the summer I honestly expected to find a job in two or less weeks, work all summer, get lots of money, and be able to go back in the fall. Now I'm looking at almost two weeks until college starts and I still haven't been able to find anything. Not even McDonald's (which I've applied to at least 3 times) is wanting me.

Good news is is that I was accepted for the work scholarship I applied for at college. This will take care of my tuition. All of it. But it stills leaves me with a need for a part-time job to take care of my room and board. Which there are a lot more jobs up there than there are here at home. Also, because I wasn't able to get a job this summer, I do not have the funds to get me in the door. (Registration, 1st payment, books, etc.)

With all of this said, you can see why I'm in need of a vast supply of both chocolate and prayer.
I have eight days to make a decision...
The first one: Stay at home for a year, get a job, save up lots of money, and see if God directs me to return to Grace next fall.
The second one: See God move in a miraculous way (which I know He does all the time), see Him supply all the money that I need, and find another part time job for the fall semester.

Yeah, the second one sounds a whole lot more complicated. But God fed 5,000 with just a few loaves of bread and a couple of fish, didn't He?

So there's my predicament...
I have 8 days to pray for God's direction....
Please, please pray with me....
Maybe eat a chocolate bar too :)

See ya soon!
