“Is God calling me to do iEDGE?”
I asked myself this question a lot in the year leading up to my iEDGE application. Many others asked me as well. This question felt weighty. I was interested, but was this God’s will? Is it presumptuous to move forward without confirmation? Will it be a mess if I get this wrong? These concerns made it hard to move forward,
but I decided I would pray while I applied.
When push came to shove, there were still deadlines and the application wasn’t short. I thought that this option, along with others I was considering, were good. It aligned with my interests and goals. It also didn’t go against any of God’s revealed will in the Bible. So, I applied, I pursued a few different options, I sought advice, and most of all, I prayed. I’m glad I kept doors open. It gave me the chance to learn more about iEDGE and other opportunities with less pressure. I knew I wasn’t committing but also that I wouldn’t have to rush to apply last minute. When I did decide to do iEDGE, I had narrowed down my options to my top few. To be honest, even in the end, I don’t think I ever received a direct calling to do iEDGE. However, I did have complete assurance that for me, doing iEDGE was pleasing to God and that He would be with me.
