Life as it is…

This is my last year of college. I’m studying journalism at the best (and one of the few) Christian colleges in the Netherlands (http://www.che.nl/)
I love to study journalism and right now I am working for a production company called Bijker productions. I’m not sure if this is really my thing. It’s hard to be a Christian journalist. because people judge you very quick and say that you aren’t objective. .And that’s so not true. Of course I’m a Christian and I try to be objective all the time. But can a Christian be a journalist esp. in Holland with abortion and gay marriage and drugs? I don’t know. It’s hard and that’s why I’m kind of searching for the path that God wants me to go on.
I’ve been to soul survivor this summer in the UK and it was awesome. I did the Passion for Your name week (a week for everyone who is in touch with worship music) One thing that came back the whole week was that we are the salt of the earth: "You are the salt of the earth, but if the salt has lost its flavour, with what will it be salted? It is then good for nothing, but to be cast out and trodden under the feet of men” Matthew 5:13
And that we don’t have to become missionaries or worship leaders to do God’s work. God needs Christians in almost every profession: teachers, nurses, journalists and so on…
But I just don’t see God’s goodness in the work I do, or at least for now. I’m trying to find my path in it, together with God.
I’m going to a mini festival weekend of soul survivor in November in Holland. I’m really excited to go and hopefully I will find more and more puzzle pieces to complete my path…

Thanks for reading! Love, Jacoline

I discovered your blog after seeing a comment of yours on the Christ Tomlin blog. I guess God drew me to come and read what you have written. I must encourage you to be the best Christian journalist you can be in a country that so desperately needs "salt & light". I urge you to put on the full armor of God so that you may stand. Read Ephesians 6. It is one my favorite passages of scripture.
