life as a student

June 16, 2008 5:24am CST
I never knew that I could make this far on pursuing the course that I chose to take in college. I am now on my 5th year in The College of Dentistry. I'm just an average student, who at most of the time spend his time being lax on school work. I know that I don't deserve to be on the pilot section of my course, but I know that God didn't put me in the section for no reason. As i grew on the pilot section, i began to learn things from my classmates like not wasting time, passing the assignments on time, and not being late in class. It's so hard to come early in class for me, especially every Monday. Like last semester, I almost failed my Resto-2 subject because I frequently come late in class missing quizzes. But God blessed me that much that He helped me pass that subject by helping me in my laboratory exercises. It was almost a miracle for me. Today I'm now officially able to be called a clinician, and now able to work on actual patient. Sometimes it scares me that I am now entitled with many responsibilities on how I am going to manage my time, being diligent on studying my lessons and getting good grades. But because I know that God will help me as He helped me pass my Resto subject last semester. I know that He will help me in all things as long as I do those things for Him. Philippians 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me."

you know what we have the same situation. Actually I dont want to take education but this is my fathers choice that is why i took this course. I still remember when I was in 1st year college I also got late, not doing my assignmentrs but i never fail until now. When The time came that i have to decide what subject i have to become my major I chose computer and it is againts to my father choice he wants me to took English as my major. As time goes by I come to realize that taking education is nice enough compare to other courses. I enjoy now teaching and I am currently 4th year student and I enjoy a lot my major. I became more responsible for my studies because I know to myself that teaching is my calling.

That is very true. sometimes we get to certain places and positions and we know definetely that it is not our doing but the doing of a more supreme being (God). He does not allow things to happen by accident . Sometimes he let thing happen to us that we certainly dont deserve because He has got a purpose for us which we have to f ulfill. So whereever you find yourself know that you have been placed there for divine reasons . Reasons that the ordinary man cannot comprehend. So let all try to live life to its fullest wherever we find ourselves.
