GED: God’s in Everything Dude
1 Kings 2:3
“Observe the requirements of the Lord your God, and follow all his ways. Keep the decrees, commands, regulations, and laws written in the Law of Moses so that you will be successful in all you do and wherever you go.”
The journey to anything is always something special. It can bring memories of thrill, success , fear, joy, a whole range of emotions. The biggest emotion for me right now is joy. Joy and the satisfaction of completion. Having a huge weight lifted off my shoulders.
Looking back in the last year and a half for me, my GED has been such a pain in the butt. But it was no one’s fault but mine. So many times I had the opportunity to take my tests and finish it, but I didn’t. For those who don’t know, a GED is a General Education Degree. It’s for people who didn’t finish school, or may have been homeschooled. After the end of my junior year (11th grade) of high school, I dropped out. Recently, learning how to balance the weight of dropping out and my GED, along with the responsibilities of FCA was very hard. But I’m out of it now.
“For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.”
Today, August 25th, 2022, marks the day I have officially “graduated” and have completed my GED. The amount of joy I felt the moment I got my test score, it is the 3rd happiest moment of my life. More than just completing it, I have gained a sense of satisfaction that I no longer have to worry about it. It has also given me a great memory already. The joy I felt surged through my body, and up to my eyes. Through emended tears of joy, I called my mom, sobbing, sharing a moment of pride through both of us as she picked up the phone. “Why are you crying buddy?” “I passed my test momma!”
A great moment to be able to share with my mother while driving home. If anything, this has taught me to never put anything off till the “last second." But also to never take the little moments granted. Being finished with my GED is also a huge blessing. I can now fully focus on my FCA studies, and graduate from FCA in January.
