It gets rough for anybody dealing with class, peers, professors and friends. However, I’ve learned that talking with God really helps me unwind and allows me to be stress free. Prayer is what gets me through my days at Florida A&M.
Sometimes I have to excuse myself from whatever is going on around me to take a deep breath and say ,”Lord help me.”
All throughout high school I was told that when I got to college that I wouldn’t be a good Christian girl anymore and that I would lose all of my morals.
I”d just shake my head and laugh. Why couldn’t I be in college and be a good Christian? No one is perfect and people make mistakes like the Bible says everyone has sinned and has fallen short of the glory of God. However, that is no excuse for forgetting my morals. My parents took care of me for 18 years, so it’s going to take more than four years for me to forget the way I was raised.
I attend bible study and life group sessions and I enjoy being surrounded by other believers in Christ. When we all share our experiences we encourage one another while we are going through our rough times.
One Sunday, a man was preaching and he told us that we need to look to God as our source so that he can put resources in our life, instead of looking and depending on people. I owed the school money and it seemed like I used every possible source to get more money. I tried every loan possible and with the semester almost over it was too late to apply for scholarships that would cover my finances for the fall.
After that Sunday, I gave all of my troubles to God and said I wasn’t going to worry about anything anymore.
I know there are people who don’t believe in God but that doesn’t change my heart or mind set. I believe once I stopped stressing over whether I would be returning for the spring semester or not, that God provided me with the money. I didn’t have to worry about having all of my ducks in a row because God had them there. I just needed to trust and have faith in Him. No matter what I’m going through God will always be the one I look to.
