Well, my work for the semester ended last week when I took my last exam. Though I had trouble maintaining full-time thanksgiving, I survived through my first full-time semester while working. At times I thought that being a full-time student and working was going to tear me down, but I made it.

The funny thing about all of this is that at times I believed I would have to sacrifice my job for my schoolwork, or vice versa, during the semester. However, I gave my two weeks notice the day after my last exam. It seems very strange, even to me, as why I would wait until after the semester to leave my job. Maybe God just wanted to show me that I could survive it.

I sometimes feel that I could’ve done more to keep my job, but I don’t regret my decision. I would often find myself to entangled in work, even when I went home afterwards. I was starting to become bitter and cynical. I was starting to focus on worldly matters, over spiritual matters. I don’t want to end up that way. Losing my focus towards eternity with my Father isn’t in my list of goals. When the choice is between my job or my Father, I’m going to choose my Father.

Anyway, wherever I go from here, I must keep my eyes fixed on God, and not myself.
