Have you ever felt so many emotions at one time that you don’t react at all until you know which emotion you want to express first? That’s exactly how I feel right now. I have conceptualized the idea for my Master’s Capstone for almost five (5) years, and for the past year and a half, I have been working diligently to see this vision through to completion, and now it’s done! Optimized Faith magazine (with the exception of possible edits once my review team takes a look at it) is complete. 2016 up to this point has been a season of peaks and valleys: I’ve cried, I’ve been frustrated, I’ve been exhausted, I’ve been excited, I’ve felt a sense of accomplishment, but the most constant thing that I’ve felt is a strong sense of gratefulness. I am grateful that the Lord has been faithful to show Himself strong in times when I’ve been weak. I am grateful for the specific people that He brought into my circle, two contributing writers and one truly gifted editor, a professor who believed in me and in my vision, and an eclectic group of individuals who serve as my Capstone Review Committee. I couldn’t have prayed for that, I wouldn’t have known too, but God saw fit to make it so.
I am less than a month away from graduation and I am so glad that I have something to show for it. The Lord is so good!
