Tonight I have been joyfully writing a paper and its now at the halfway mark. It is time to rest and sleep for the night. Tomorrow is an exciting day filled with graduations and graduation parties for my students. I may even get to go swimming at one of the parties–we will see! Afterward, its back to writing.
I do not know if I will be able to finish by tomorrow evening but I will strive to. If not, I will have to rush home between services Sunday to complete the assignment. These things in the past would stress me out and have me worked up, but no longer. The process of schooling is rapidly coming close to an end with approximately one year and a dissertation remaining. I do not want to say the process has become easier but I will say I have grown throught the process.
There were many nights in years past that I would sta up working on assignments of studing until 4, 5, or even 6 a.m. Now, I am able to be more productive with my days than I used to be. It is unbelievable what I can accomplish in any given day. I do not know when the growth occurred but I must say EPIC Bible College and Regent University have done an exceptional job in preparing me for the next level of leadership. I do not claim to have it all together, nor to be ready for what is next but I do know I am more prepred than I would have been without these two fine schooling establishments.
Philippians 4:13 is an encouraging proclaimation that I have found to be true in my life.
I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.
Maybe you are reading this latest article and you are trying to accomplish new things in your life, complete a project or even aim for that promotion. Whatever you are facing right now understand this based on my experience: you can accomplish much more than you give yourself credit for. Whatever it is be faithful in the little things and watch how they grow and become fruitful in your life. One day you will look back and think to yourself, “How did I get here?”. While you are moving forward aim to have, as one person said it, “an attitude of grattitude.”
Remain joyful in all things and see what you can accomplish as you diligently move forward.
