Let me start from the beginning, my friends and I went to a party, there was drinking and drugs being use. I'm in college and my parents were not here to guide me.
"Come on, it's not going to do anything to you but make you feel good," my friend said.
"No, I'm not into any of that," I said.
"You just a little baby. Why don't you do some grownup stuff," she said.
"Maybe, I should go back to the room", I said.
"You know that you just a loser. No one is going ever want to be around you. You are never going to have any friends because you don't party." she said.
Tears began to run down my face, I was a freshmen and the thought of never having a friend the rest of my college career was unbearable. I walk back to my room and threw myself on my bed.
I pick the phone to call my parents, but what would I tell them. I couldn't say that I want come home because I will never have any friends because I didn't do drugs.
You have to understand my parents didn't want me to go so far away from home. They want me to be near in case of trouble, but I convinced them that I would be alright.
As I fell asleep, I began to dream about my grandma. She was a wise woman and everyone in the family always went to for her advice. But my grandma had been death for more than three years.
Her voice came to me and said,"You are a good girl and God has provided for you. He will sent people your way to be your friends. Trust the inner voice that He has place inside. In your lowest moment, pull from your inner strength. He had place these inside you to be a gift to others. You are not a gift for yourself but to lead others to Him. Your parent didn't let you come here, God had this in your destiny from the beginning.
I thank God for speaking to me, with my grandma voice. I praise Him for training my for the next storm to come in my life.
