Normally, every after my midterm or final examination, I would worry and be anxious. about the outcome.
Will I get good grades?
Will I be able to reach my professor’s mark of excellence?
Well, I think, it is but normal to anticipate results from something you know you have worked hard for a long time. But sometimes, we go overboard and worry too much – so grave, to the point that you become crippled and billowed in anxiety!
I used to be like that before.
I used to be more focused on the outcomes that I forget the essence of my journey and learning process. I always strive for perfection on something that is not supposed to determine my life and character as a person.
Recently, my newly set journey in following the Lord taught me one of the most important things in life:
Law school grades does not determine who I am. My character as a person and as a daughter of God does.
When I found my way back to the Lord, through Jesus Christ, I felt great difference in surrendering everything to Him than overcoming the challenges myself. In all these years that I believed and praised him, I lost sight of how much He loves me that I forgot to raise to Him all the burdens that pull me down as a person. Surrendering to the Lord my weary and burdened self has made me feel the comfort, confidence, and peace that I have never felt before. I have this newly regained spirit and strength; an assurance that I there’s nothing I cannot surmount because God is with me.
The only way for “weariness” and “anxiety” to leave our vocabularies is to trust the Lord wholeheartedly and unconditionally, and be closer to Him as any child would.
Read His Words.
Lean on His promises.
Allow Him in your heart and life.
May you find the peace and comfort that I am experiencing right now through God’s eternal grace.
God bless you!
