“Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.” – Romans 12:12, ESV

My 17 years of yearning for college while working as a corporate slave and three years in my second college course have not been easy.

That 20 years has been a life filled with hustling, fighting for my dreams, hardships, pains, and rejections. But God has been my constant refuge and strength.

He’s also been my mighty Redeemer of both awful situations and bad decisions.

My dear Lord Jesus has lead me to people, places, and situations who have helped me finish my dream of having a bachelor’s degree.

Yes, I have also had my own share of frustrations, failed expectations, and fake friends. But God has pulled me through my darkest and toughest times.

Only God knows my deepest pains, the days and nights I cried in my room alone, the times when I walk the many long lonely roads of my journey, and the awful times when I felt so alone in my fight for a better life.

I surely have my best laid plans after graduation, but God they’re certainly no match to the awesome surprises that only You could bring forth.

I don’t know what tomorrow holds, but I do know Who holds tomorrow, so I won’t worry.

Lord Jesus, my Redeemer, Savior, and Friend, lead me on and I will carry on. To You I give back all praises, thanks, and glory!

Special thanks to my three sisters: April, Jack, and Aniecar for sharing this momentous occasion with me.
