“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.

Few weeks ago, I’m in the library studying for my quiz in Broadcast Engineering and Acoustics subject. As I’m looking outside the window, the freezing air from the air conditioning unit was comforting my eyes to close. Out of this sleepy scene, a little bird catches my attention. This bird was flying the same way that other birds did, but when I looked at it for several times, I somehow realized how this bird painted a rainbow. It forced its little wings down, then up, repeats it, struggles, tries it again, and struggles, maintaining altitude, and then fly. See? Do you see what the little bird did? It doesn’t care whether hindrances blocked its way. To this little bird, what is more important is how it can fly.

Life is full of struggles. Everyone experiences hindrances along the way but how a person respond in the situation creates the difference. We must focus our eyes in the direction we are going and disregard the things that cause the delay in our flight. God does not promise a smooth journey but a magnificent landing. We will encounter struggles in reaching our dreams, but perseverance in keeping the altitude of our dreams will get us there, just in time.
