Hello,
I'm Kristi and I really need to share sth with you and also to receive any advice. I'm 20 years old and I applied for a college course in Germany but I didn't get into it. My family lives in an island of Greece and I'm alone here. I really want to serve the Lord and I also want to take care of other people but I don't really know what to do now. I feel like I don't have enough power about anything. I don't have high expectations for my life and I want to earn my daily bread as a real servant of God. But the problem is that I don't know what direction to take on my life.!! I really need your advice especially from young woman who are at the same position as me... (Everyone thinks that you can't do anything without collage and you are a loser)

*What do you guys suggest?

i would encourage you to discard what the 'everyone' thinks and meditate on what God thinks, about you.


Bless you ....><>

Kristi, from what you have said here you are in a perfect position for God to use you for His Glory. Remember you are never alone, the Lord is always with you even when you do not feel his presence. You say you have no power, that is not a bad thing because the Bible tells us that "when you are weak then are you strong, for God's power is made perfect in weakness" (2 Cor 12:9-10)

"If any man thinks himself to be something, when he is nothing has deceived himself" (Gal 6:2-3)

When there is no hope, God will give you hope, and show you the way that he has for you. Do not forget God uses people to help other people.

If you have a desire to do the will of God, the Lord will open up his word to your heart to behold great, and mighty things. (John 7:15-17) (Jer 33:2-3)

Having an education might be something the world thinks as necessary, but for God, he teaches things that are eternal that will never passway.

This is what the Lord is saying to you right now.

Jer 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

If you call upon the Lord your God he will give unto you the plans he has for you which are not evil, but of wellbeing!


Pro 3:5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
Pro 3:6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

That was very helpful...thank you so much. I know sometimes we feel weak but you're right nothing can snatch us away from him. God bless you

Maybe it's not his will to follow this college or to go to this city .. Maybe he is still preparing you to another thing ask him take time of worship and pray and ask his will and to tell you what to do

Learn to code. If you are still going to college, study STEM or go into a trade. You can do anything else for free at the library. Dunno about Europe but in America, student loans are not going anywhere. You can't declare bankruptcy on student loans. It's blood money. You are screwed on it and employers can Penny pinch because you are had over a barrel. You are desperate.

Over a trillion of the student debt is female loans in liberal arts or women studies. The equivalent of a degree in basket weaving or sock puppetry. It's insanity. It postponement of motherhood, family, and other things that are important.

If education is important, go to the library. You can get everything free. If it's MEd school or something stem field, go for it but ask, is this it? What do you want?
