Good… no, Great News!

Posted on Updated on

Yesterday I got to register for my classes at Fuller. That was a huge relief and exciting as ever knowing that I will be studying again. I know, its a little weird saying I’m going to enjoy this but I feel as though I have a deep joy inside me that has just been released. So I registered for Beginning Greek, Systematic Theology and Foundations for Ministry. Pray for me during these studies… cause anyone who has been in school knows everyone needs a little prayer.
What really made yesterday great was that I also received my financial aid reward. Enough to cover classes, books, and possibly some other school-related expenses. This was a great discovery since I had been told I would not receive the awards until Friday/Next Monday. It was also nice to know I would be covered.
I know… I should trust God a little more when he says “Go” but I’m human… and I get very anxious of making sure things are secured before making major changes. In the end, God provided, just as he has in the past. I’m really going to try and get the best grades possible. I know this is a silly goal right now, since i have no idea what grad classes are like, but I want it to be a goal. My undergrad GPA was the highest it has ever been (honest GPA, not elevated like in high school with AP classes) and I want to hang onto that. I also want to (in the futurue God-willing) to pursue a Th.M. For some reason I feel a pull towards this and want to be able not only to lead a congregation but also to have enough knowledge to do a little teaching. This will take time, something I know God has clearly stated I have plenty of, and so I will work at my M.Div until times reveals.
In closing, when I found out yesterday about my classes and financial aid, I sang a song to God…(The Doxology if you want to know)
Praise God from Whom All Blessings Flow
Praise Him all creatures here below
Praise Him above yea heavenly host
Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost
Amen

Exactly what the post says… nothing much going on.

This morning consisted of me trying not to think about the sunburn I acquired at my neice’s soccer game yesterday and of what to eat for breakfast as we have no food in the house.
On a positive note, I had enough money to service my car for 60k miles. That was a blessing because I need to keep my little Matrix (aka Beaker) running.
Today is also rally sunday at church– which equates to food, fun, and a raffle that I will be handing out tickets for 🙂 I figured it was a great way for people to learn who I am and then I get to meet a lot of people as well.
I’m praying God will calm my nerves down considering I am still in this limbo state for school. Classes start on September 27th, I have no idea what my financial aid status is or my admissions status really because my portico states I’m still a “Limited Enrolled Student” when I know I’m program seeking. At least that’s what I think. I sent out follow up emails and I register for classes on Tuesday so I am hoping/praying everything will be worked out by then. But that’s Tuesday, today is Sunday, and frankly… I’m still worried 😛
Shalom in Christ,

Welcome!

Well, here i am. I’m writing out another blog of sorts in house to put down my thoughts as they come to me. It’s difficult, because this actually requires me to come to a sigh and think up things to say. But I’m sure ideas will come around.


So in less than two weeks I am praying I will be starting my first grad-school seminary classes in Greek, Systematic Theology and Ministry Foundations. I’m so excited… I almost don’t know what for. I know God is calling me to this aspect of life and study… and I know God is calling me to a life of ministry… but what that looks like I have no idea. Walking by faith again, I guess.

Anyways… I pray that God will help support me in any way He sees fit. God knows I need help 🙂
