What do you desire?
February 20th, 2013 | Sarah Walters
Recently, a three minute video went viral, and the narrator, Allan Watts, asks the viewer: “What would you desire to do, if money were no object?”
Take a minute to think about how you would respond. Too many times people allow themselves to be trapped into allowing other people to decide for them. College is an opportunity for you to discover what it is you are passionate about.
As faculty, we don’t expect our new students to know exactly what you want to do when you graduate. In fact, most of us are here because we want to embark on that journey with you. We want to be an active part of your growth into adulthood and your career.
When I first started working at Evangel, I was blown away by the relationships faculty members fostered with their students. As I got to know my students, I quickly realized why. Here at Evangel, we are more like a family. Our alumni frequently visit to let us know how they are. Students drop by to ask for prayer. We love community.
We also strive to guide you in making wise and godly decisions about things that will affect your career. The faculty here at Evangel have worked in a variety of fields, and we are now faculty at a university because we want to instill the same passion in our students. You may change your major one or three times but we want you to succeed, no matter where your chosen path in life may lead you.
Scripture says in Proverbs 16:9 that “the mind of man plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps.”
I encourage you to decide what you desire to do, and ask as many questions as possible. Find a faculty member who shares or understands your passions, and seek advice. We love our students and want to see you succeed. We will be with you every step of the way: in front of you in class, beside you in prayer, and behind you on graduation day.
