A new year, another semester

Published: 15 January 2006 | 10 comments

Well my holiday was rather short, about a week long, but for the first time that I can think of I am excited about my next semester. Last semester definitely wasn’t a good semester for me but I know this coming semester will be better. Despite all that has happened the Lord has blessed me in many areas and I thank him for the opportunity he has given me.

1 Chronicles 16:34 NIV

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.

I ask for your prayers as I go through another semester at school. It will be tough no doubt but I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me or as the Amplified Bible says it:

Philippians 4:13 AMP

I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency]

Wow the Amplified says it so nicely, don’t you think?

I pray that you all may be blessed greatly this year by our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and that he will protect you and your family all through the year.

Peace and God Bless!

It will be a good semester ! You’ve battled through some real tough challenges and you still have what it takes to keep on going, because YOU know that God is always with you and watching over you. I will though, continue to pray for you as always…hehe.

I wish you well as you enter your next semester. What are you studying, if you don’t mind me asking?

Hello Shawn. I am doing a computer science major and electronics minor. This semester I only have computer courses though and will be doing “database management”, “operating systems”, “logic,complexity and computability” and “software engineering”.
