It’s funny how we think you have it figured out, and then He surprises you. You never really figure it out, I’ve come to learn. You just roll with the punches and fake it till you make it. But the one thing, I will not fake is my FAITH. There’s no point, because the Lord is real and He lives in all of us. And can live in you too, only if you give Him a chance.

I think before you believe in yourself, it’s better to believe in Him first. Then you won’t have any doubts, in yourself. You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you, is what my mom always tells me. But you don’t realize it, until you fully believe in His Power.

So, as I embark on this new journey, of going to grad school, in the city that never really sleeps, a city I have always had an undying love for, to meet new people, experience new cultures, new personalities. Just to begin realizing more of my purpose in this world.

I can do all things through Him, he gave me exactly what I asked for – 10 months ago. So, I have no choice but to buckle up and go get it. It will be fun, scary, exciting, nerve wrecking, but above all thrilling!

Thank you Lord for this awesome opportunity and many to come. I believe whole heartedly in the plan you have set in front of me. I want my family to be proud of me, but most importantly, Aniya. To show her, it’s ok to be different – yet talented. The Lord loves us regardless.

Again, Thank you Lord. I humbly turn my soul over to you.

P.S  Shine Bright Like A Diamond!
