Spiritually, I’m in a desert. I think I have good ideas for how to help myself, but I’m so disoriented from being in this desert that I can’t actually do much to help myself. I know everyone has dry seasons, but I hate them. I think I need a community group to be surrounded and in the prayers of more people of God. I think just talking out how I feel about God and our unfortunately stagnant relationship will help me focus on actually working through this season instead of just praying it was over. I’m very bad at just dealing with things or being patient about things unless I know why I’m having to deal with them or why I need to be patient. And of course, we’re not always going to know God’s plan. He might reveal a piece of His plan or He might just tell you to trust Him. And trusting Him can be scary if you thought your vision was in line with God’s, but for some reason just isn’t working out. Along with scary, it can be frustrating and draining. But all we can do is continue to bring our thoughts, prayers, and worries to God even when it seems like He’s not speaking to us. We have to remember God is always there regardless of how the situation looks or how you feel.
Stay positive and keep praying, my friends. Be blessed!
So I didn’t read my lit review before I turned it in. I got some positive feedback on Friday about it from my classmates. I finally read it and I just had to stop and seriously thank God because it was actually a decent first draft. It was so decent in fact I know I’m going to struggle with how to edit it for this second draft due Wednesday, but I’m working on that now so I don’t have to be up all night on Tuesday.
God is too good to me. I wish I wasn’t so trifling.
I have finally turned the darn paper in. From now on, less homework talk. God is good, y’all. If I’m meant to stay, it will work out. I need to stop worrying. Time for a quick nap and then another “exciting” day of grad school.
It’s really hard not to be negative about this class when I already failed one part of the assignment and I’m still not finding enough sources to go on and attempt to make a better grade on the overall assignment.
Maybe, as unhelpful as this sounds, I need to start writing the lit review. Then I might be able to figure out what I need more off.
I pray that everyone be encouraged. I feel like I’ve been negative lately (online and in real life) and I just want to send some good vibes your way. I hope I haven’t scared anyone off from grad school lol. I’m sure it will be worth it in the end, but I’m struggling with a lot of emotional stuff (career-related and some more personal stuff) with just makes everything 10 times harder. So as I pray for you, I pray for myself.
Codecademy is not that helpful to me. I’d rather have a human explain it to me because it doesn’t tell me what I’m doing wrong. It just says that something is wrong. And when I’m just learning something, I need to know specifically what I’m doing wrong.
Some phrased it correctly in the forum - I got the right answer. That doesn’t mean I understand it.
