I'm feeling really weird now.

I phoned up Viz-A-Viz to ask about placements. Apparently both tracks 2 (Theatre) and 3 (Technical) are full. There's a space in track 1 (Music) for a bass player, but I really haven't had experience with that.

Track 4 (Youth and community teams) is available, but I didn't feel like that's what God wanted me to do.

I am sad and confused.

Hrmm...I don't know much about God or religion, but my understanding is that God likes to present challenges along with opportunities like this. It may well be that this challenge is a part of what God has envisioned for you...mayhaps the challenge of getting in the track that you desire involves learning something that you will need later in order to face this challenge...

Personally though...I'd be surprised if God didn't in some fashion give you what you truly need to face such challenges.

Curious...when do you have to decide by?

Maybe God's real plan for you in this situation wasn't to attend Viz-A-Viz, but to learn some important lessons. This is a situation where you have most likely misinterpreted what it is that God wants from you, but perhaps that is itself what God wanted. Maybe He intended for you to learn that you are not infallable, even when you are entirely convinced that you are doing His work. Some of the most heinous crimes are perpetrated by people who believe fully that they are doing what God wants them to do.

You said in an earlier entry that lately the devil has been trying to make you think that you're better than other people. If I can make an observation, it seems also that your recent 'revelation' helped to fuel the devil's plan. "ciaran_h: Just remember, I'm not better than you. You can do this too, if you want." Perhaps God's intention is to reveal to you that blindly following what you *think* may be His plan does not make you better, but possibly the opposite. Maybe he's trying to rescue you from both the devil and yourself.

The lessons you can learn from being unable to attend Viz-A-Viz may be more valuable than any you could have learned while there.

Or, maybe not. Who really knows.

May I ask what Viz-A-Viz is? (I tried the optimum link and it didn't work)

and what ended up happening?
