Help with School and Work
« on: July 17, 2013, 12:21:15 AM »
I'm sorry to be asking for prayers for myself, but I am on the verge of burn out. At the beginning of the summer I signed up for four classes thinking that I would not have to work until august. However, because of how things turned out, I ended up with a full time job (thanks be to God!) but I kept my classes.

At this point in the summer, I am studying a ridiculous number of hours each day, and I'm falling behind on assignments. Additionally, I am just exhausted at work.  Please pray for me to get a second wind.

You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.

We all have an El Guapo to face. Be brave, and fight like lions!

Form a 'brute squad' then!

Lord, have mercy!

What are you studying?

Lord, have mercy!

What are you studying?
Finishing up my course work for my MA in philosophy. Currently taking: Contemporary Philosophy, Natural Theology, Plato's Republic, and Research and Design for Thesis Students. I will be writing my thesis this fall and hopefully graduating in December. Then applications to doctoral studies.

Lord have mercy.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.
