College and career decisions!

I’m really having trouble figuring out what I want, well more importantly, what God wants for me to do as far as my career future goes.

Right now I’m a freshman in college taking my basic classes, however, I’m still not sure what I want to major in. It seems like a new idea is going through my mind every day…I just can’t decide. I’m driving my parents and myself crazy becasue, even though I know I want to do something with my life, I have no idea what that something is.

I know I love helping people, old and young. I’ve considered working as an elementary school teacher and social worker, or even in a nursing home. I have worked in a funeral home and loved it, the environment and everything, but I find the schedule very hectic and I’m just not sure if its for me.

Please pray that God will help lead me down the right path and show me, in his perfect timing, what his intentions are for me :slight_smile:

im at the same point in my life freshman in college and dont know what to do. except i never had any idea at all with what i want to go to school for.

May God’s holy will be done in your life with no obstacles to His will. May the Holy Spirit help you with discernment, and fill your life with joy. Amen.

I shall pray for the spirit to guide you to the right career.

God bless you


Praying for your intentions….

Lord Jesus, You have said,
“Learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart.”
With confidence in Your loving heart
which offers rest to weary souls,
we come to You in this time of special need.
In Your unfailing love,
read the prayer that is written on our hearts,
and grant the grace that we ask of You,
in accordance with Your holy will.
In Your name we pray.

thanks guys :slight_smile: I know I’ll figure it out in time

Praying that you will follow God’s Will for you and that He makes it clear what career path you should choose …
