Spring 2016 – aka GRADUATION!

graduationWhile I know it’s still break, let’s not forget that Spring Semester 2016 is right around the corner! I’m super excited about this fact because, Lord willing, I’ll be graduating, and all of the hard work I’ve been putting in over the past four years will pay off: I’ll walk down the aisle and receive a diploma for a Bachelors in Advertising/Public Relations. Which, let me tell you, is no small feat.

Over the past four years I have invested blood, sweat, and tears into my many projects in design classes. I have struggled through seemingly irreparable web coding issues. I have conquered my fear of speaking in front of people. I have studied for hours for business tests that seemed to have way too many terms for my little mind to remember. But I did it! I did it all, but the credit doesn’t go to me—it was all God.

You see, it was God that gave me the creativity to be able to design the things my teacher was looking for in those design classes. It was God that blinded my teachers' eyes to the mistakes He didn’t want them to notice. It was God who showed Himself strong in my weakness of public speaking. It was God that gave me a mind that could memorize the many terms for business classes. It was all God: all of the credit goes to Him!

So if you ask me what I’m most excited about coming back to PCC for the spring semester, of course I’ll say GRADUATION! But also, I’m super excited to come back and have another semester of God working and watching Him do incredible things in my heart and life!

College is typically only 4 years, but if you allow it, it becomes 4 incredible years of watching God work and do things you never imagined were possible. I personally never thought I’d make it to being a second-semester senior, but God has carried me through to this point in life. If He can take me this far in my college career, just imagine what He can do for you if you give it all to God and watch Him work in and through you.
