Strapped into a thrill-seeking ride is how I would describe my experience in business school so far.
There’s a lot of emotions on the ride: excitement mixed with fear but also an assurance that everything’s going to be ok.
The initial shock of moving across the country to the second largest city in the country and returning to school is wearing off.
Even though things can seem hectic at times and I get overwhelmed with the course load and social obligations, I thank God every day for the opportunity.
I'm thankful because I know even when you’re walking in His promises things aren’t always going to be easy.
“By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went even though he did not know where he was going. By faith he made his home in the promised land like a stranger in a foreign country; he lived in tents as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise. For he was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God.” Hebrews 11: 8-10
“So I commend the enjoyment of life, because nothing is better for a man under the sun than to eat and drink and be glad. Then joy will accompany him in his work all the days of the life God has given him under the sun.” Ecclesiastes 8: 15
Riding roller coasters can be some of the scariest rides in the park with their tight turns and unforeseen drops. But we don't have to be afraid because we know the Designer and He wouldn’t let us get on the ride without knowing how it would end.
“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well…All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” Psalm 139: 14,16
