I’m a senior this year, and I’m in a very tough situation. Ever since I was younger, there’s two schools I’ve been trying to decide between. They’re both very similar. The pros and cons are equal, but I think I know which one I WANT to go to. I’ve been accepted into one of the schools already, but I’m still applying to the other. (I don’t think getting accepted is a problem.) One is 2 and a half hours away in the mountains (Mountains= my happy place), and the other my parents both graduated from. It’s about 45 minutes away. I would like the distance, but I would miss my family some. My grandparents who I’m super close to live very close to the school in the mountains, but they might have to move back here. I also have some friends who go to school pretty close to the school in the mountains, while I don’t really know anyone who goes to the school close to here. My heart is saying the mountains, but my head is saying I’m an idiot for wanting to leave. I also want to make sure I’m picking the school for the right reasons (both small Christian). The one here just doesn’t feel quite right, but how do I know if that’s because it’s really not right, or if I’ve fallen so in love with the school in the mountains that I’m making it not feel right? How do I know where God is trying to tell me to go? It obvious to me where I WANT to go, but how do I know where I’m SUPPOSED to go?

Pray about it! God will show you where you should go and sometimes he works everything in mysterious ways. If you’d rather go to the mountain college ask God if that is his will. If you feel like it is, go for it. If there is ANY doubt in your mind, I believe that is God telling you not to go. He might work out a way where if you are planning to go to the mountain college and it is NOT his will, he might allow something you do not like to happen simply to open a door for you to experience something greater. I’ll be praying that God shows you what college you want to go to. That is a hard decision, I know! Love you lots.

Thanks <3 I'm not totally at peace about it, but I think it's mainly because deepdeep down I'm doubting my motives. I've been praying but I'm not really getting anything. Love you lots too!!
