I was not expecting anything. Just hoping. Second year was indeed a rollercoaster ride. But God always lifted my spirit. He always got my back kahit pagod na pagod na ko. Yung heartache just thinking about the grade I needed to maintain the scholarship. God made me feel uncomfortable and I realized He wants me to push harder, reset the limits I have set for myself. And at times na sobrang pagod na yung spirit ko, He will send my friends, my professors to cheer me on.
I keep on thinking about my family every night. How much burden I would give them if I lose the scholarship. And I kept praying. God hears every prayer and ngayon ko lang fully narealize ‘to. I kept praying na Lord, sana makahabol pa ko. Sana hindi pa too late.
They released our grades yesterday and also the list of the scholars. Someone uploaded a blurred photo at first and I couldn’t make out the student numbers but I counted 26 asterisks = 26 scholars. From 40+ scholars, only 26 retained their scholarship. And sobrang kinakabahan na ako but I kept praying… Then someone uploaded a better photo of the list… And there it was, my student number with an asterisk beside it. The tears flowed and I kept thanking the Lord. The late nights studying, me skipping meals just to read transes, studying out in my favorite spot in Seattle’s Best Coffee… they were all worth it. Now, I can’t wait to tell my family. 😀 #roadtoVneck
This verse kept me going during Block 5 up until finals. I urge you to read this chapter (Mark 5:21-43) in the Bible. It’s about one of Jesus’ miracles. Jesus making the impossible, possible. 🙂
