Taking Prayer Requests?

For those who are interested in adding to their list of people and things to pray for..... you can pray for me.
I am seeking to graduate in May of 2009 as I eluded to in my last post. So far so good but there are many many details that need to come in order before that can happen. I need to finish this semester strong and right now I have no motivation... AH I'll make it though. For my internship to come together and that everything there would go well. That I would be able to sign up for Senior Assessment in the spring if I need it (I'm waiting to hear back from registrar to know whether I need it or not.) And for my Independent study courses (2 of them) that I would be diligent in getting those completed and do well in them!
Honestly, it feels like there is a lot that needs to happen in order for me to finally be done and I do not do well with jumping through hoops.... Who does? However, I am very determined to do well and to finish strong and not give up until I have that piece of paper in my hand that says I can move past school to other things... If you could pray for strength and just that I would meet all of the requirements (sometimes I feel out of the loop when it comes to knowing what hoops need to be jumped through and how to do that) Thanks very much! I will keep you posted on the process and in May I look forward to celebrating with a graduation post! :D
Thank you thank you!

End In Sight

How appropriate that Pastor Chris would talk about experiencing the glory of God only to press on to walk the gravel of life on Sunday! This week through much prayer and speaking to various people on campus at Cornerstone God showed me a bit of His glory by allowing me to speak to the right people and Lord willing I will be graduating this May! My semester will be jam packed with classes and an internship as well as working part-time at the bookstore but when all is said and done I know that I will be glad that I did it all at once instead of going back later to finish up! I am so excited to finish on time with the rest of my classmates and even more excited to begin a new chapter in my life. BUT like Chris reminded me on Sunday this small bit of glory I am experiencing now is not meant to be "camped" in I am to press on and move to the gravel and work hard to get to the finish line. I would appreciate any prayers you have for me to be diligent in my studying as well as in my personal life so that I don't get distracted or prideful thinking that I'm doing this all on my own because by no means do I intend on getting to graduation in May without God's help. I need Him in every aspect of my journey in the gravel!

Hope you all prayed and voted today!
Sleep tight for we are in God's mighty hand regardless of the outcome of this momentous election!

Let us spur one another on toward love and good deeds...
