I Will Not Be Afraid

I wanna be reckless
Cause You are endless
I wanna be shameless
And shout Your greatness
I will not be afraid
To surrender my way
And follow who You are
I wanna be reckless, reckless
                               (Reckless // Jeremy Camp)

As I drove to work today I turned the radio on. I wasn't really paying attention to the music playing, my thoughts were occupied with driving, and the mountain of homework and editing I had for the weekend.  

But all of sudden I heard the words I will not be afraid, To surrender my way. 

My attention turned completely to the song as the words hit home. 

I wanna be reckless, Cause You are endless.

 And follow who You are, I wanna be reckless, reckless.

 Right now I'm trying to figure where God wants me. I'm completely torn between two amazing colleges and I want to choose the right one for me. The one God wants me at. 

As I listened to the song, I realized I needed to let go of my fears and concerns. I love both colleges but sometimes I get myself worried about different aspects of each college. Or about college in general. 

How am I going to handle all the work? Will I feel at home right away and become great friends with people right away? Will I still have time for my photography?

I will not be afraid.

Cause You are endless.

Such a simple reminder. I will flourish where ever God wants me at.

Trust Him. Follow Him.  
 And I will not be afraid. 

~Mary Kate
