It's the time of the year to choose classes for next semester again. The question of career chioces and what knowledge to build upon arises. Frankly, though I do indeed love computers, I find myself lacking passion when it comes to implementing solutions that enable us to make more money in the business world.
Having completed all but one class, my schedule for next semester can be filled with virtually anything I want. Though signing up for more MIS (Managment Information Systems) classes would probably boost my value in the job market, I find myself turning once again to my childhood ambition of being a teacher of English literature.
I spent the good part of the morning doing the math. I could squeeze in an English minor on top of my degree if I slogged in superhuman proportions next semester. It has been a while since I've felt the dream at within my grasp again, and my breath shortens with anticipation simply at the thought of it. I want so much to spend my life reading and exploring the things that make us human and the fullness that is life.
But I am reminded that "whoever shall seek his life shall lose it; and whoever shall lose his life for my sake shall find it (Matthew 10:39)". It is a struggle to lay down all that I deem dear to me, and believing that He to whom I have commited my life is faithful to keep it.
