The Lord has been very sweet to me these past few days. If you guys read on my previous blogs, you know that I just started my graduate program and was currently busy meeting employers. This past week has been really hard on me. I had to go to at least one event every night, school work are starting to pile up and I missed the Bible Study/meeting with the saints. So, long story short, I was sad.
I've been thinking, why am I here in UT for another year? Obviously, it's by the Lord's grace and mercy I got into the nation's number one accounting school. To be honest, I didn't try hard, I did what I had to do to apply for it and I got in. People around me were more excited than me when I got into the program. Please don't get me wrong, I do like the program and I was glad I got in. I look forward to all the opportunities and choices I received from the program. But. Yes, but. "But" is such a strong word, even in the Bible, especially when you read Romans.
I turned to 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, it says, "Always rejoice, Unceasingly pray, In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you."
So, after I prayed, talked to the Lord and fellowship-ed with other believers about my matter, now I know what He wants. He just want me to always rejoice, unceasingly pray and in everything give thanks! For me right now, in order to have all these is to stop looking for a job and just be in the meetings and be with the saints! This does not mean that I am completely cutting off my relation with the accounting world and I won't do my best in my studies anymore. I will definitely do my best in class, but for now, to gain more Christ, this is what I have to do. Maybe by next year the Lord will show me more light, who knows what I'll do except for the Lord. So, please pray for me y'all. :)
Praise the Lord that our God is SO real and dear.
