With God, I can.
Honestly, I am so afraid about the results of my exams last week. I admit that I did not study my lessons so hard. I was even lax and didn’t take UP’s exams seriously. I am totally unprepared for each exam, and after each one, I go out of the Lecture Hall feeling condemned and full of regrets.
Later, I think, I will know where all my idleness has gotten me into. I’m so scared. I prayed to the Father for strength and courage to face everything, regardless of how good or how bad it may be. I prayed for peace, for joy and for the stillness in spirit so I will still be able to smile, smile, and smile.
However, God gave me more than what I am asking. I can never take back what happened in my exams last week, but He told me, "Your story doesn’t end here, beloved. You’ve learned your lesson, and I’ve never left you. It’s not too late. Just trust me okay? This semester’s not over. Abide in me, and I will infuse in you a love and passion for your studies more than what you’ve had before. I will enable you, because this is my grace. I will never leave you alone in your studies."
With God, it’s never too late. He always teaches me that. I know there isn’t such a thing as ‘no more hope.’ As long as I walk with God, and always be conscious that He is in control, I know that I am headed to good things.
