Posts Tagged ‘Board Exam’

Day 23 of review for the board exam, I am using a ball pen which is erasable. The characteristic of a ball pointed pen that is not its usual purpose. The purpose of using a ball pen is to write things permanently in a sheet of paper. I use this erasable pen so that everytime I have corrections, I can still erase it without messing the paper.  Ironically, whenever I use the pen, I do not experience any corrections. The opposite situation when I am using a permanent ball pen.

There is a lesson in this simple story that can be your life’s turning point. I paint a rainbow in this way: I do not experience corrections because I do not care with errors, for I am thinking what I need to write and when I am using the permanent one, I focused not to make errors so I fail to avoid it. When we know our goals and focus our eyes in what we are doing and believing, we can avoid erasures in our life. And when we are focusing on the gloomy side of life, we cannot see clearly so we cannot avoid erasures.

Fixed your eyes to your dreams and disregard the destructions and failures. Always believe that God guides our every action. We do not need to focus in not committing errors because God never fails providing the best path for His children. Instead of focusing in the possibility of your failures, focus in the certainty of your goals and dreams through God. Use a pen of faith and great dreams will be written.

“A difficult hill” is the title of the passage that somehow encouraged me to start the review for the board exam with a smile and no worries. The board exam for an electronics engineering graduate like me, is the same in climbing on a steep hill, where you need to have a backpack of knowledge, one liter of hard work, and compass of faith to get over it. These days, I really don’t know how to prepare for the review, until the passage I read yesterday.

March 23, 2012, A Difficult Hill, from Our Daily Bread by RBC Ministries. I read this little book not by date but every time I’m in the mood of reading God’s word so that reading will be more effective. I consider it as God’s way of answering my prayers.  Yesterday, I felt to read it again since I’m worrying about the review, and this time, God provided me this great painting of rainbow. The passage changed my view in starting the review on April 23, 2012. It stated that God will always give us strength for the next step. I realized that our views in difficulties of life are different in the way God sees it. Sometimes, due to the way we sees situations in our life, even small burdens can seem too big to handle. This is probably the reason why I’m frightened to start the review. I’m looking in the situation surrounding it and not focusing my eyes in the real goal, which is to pass the October 2012 ECE Board Exam.

Whenever worries are knocking on your door, try to paint a rainbow through prayers. I can assure you that in different ways, God will strengthen you in your journey. Just remember that if you encounter the steepest hill on your chosen path, wear the eyeglass from God and try to look at it again.
