I remember in 2009, I was taking my second class in The Graduate all Christian Ministries program. I decided to do my final paper on the Old Testament Covenant. I thought this would be a great idea because I didn’t know very much about the topic and writing a paper on the subject would be a great way to learn about it. Because I did come to graduate school in order to understand the Bible at the highest level possible. This topic entailed more detail than I ever thought possible. I probably bit off more than I can chew. And the professor was An Old Testament scholar. When I received my final paper, I had a grade of a D-. Thankfully, I had A’s on all the other assignments in this class. This allowed me to receive a B- in the class.
I took the next semester off because my mother had become ill and needed help with her care. But when I went back to school, I decided to use this paper as an example about not to do a research paper. I got an A on every single Paper I did after that and one B. This reminds me all of Philippians 3:13-14, Brothers, I don’t regard myself as yet having taken hold, but one thing I do: forgetting the things which are behind, and stretching forward to the things which are before, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus (World English Bible). So,When bad things happen to you, use them as a stepping stone and not a stumbling block. Stay positive and keep going after your dreams.
