There's a wide misconception, especially among Egyptians, that in order to live you HAVE to get top marks and get the BEST job, and DEVOTE yourself to it so you can be successful...
This may seem really obvious to some, as it was to me, but it never really hit me till recently.. WHY ON EARTH DOES EVERYONE STRESS ABOUT EXAMS THAT MEAN NOTHING ? WHY DO WE STRESS ABOUT OUR CARREERS OR MONEY OR EVEN WHERE WE'LL FIND OUR FOOD TOMMOROW? WHAT'S THE WORST THAT CAN HAPPEN? YOU'RE HOMELESS? HUNGRY? COLD? YOU DIIIEEE?? WE'RE CHRISTIAN PEOPLE AND WE ALL KNOW DEATH IS NOT THE END!
Today I really put this to action and I really truly did not stress about the Physics exam I have tomorrow, I said to God, from the depth of my heart- 'Let Your will be done'
When I came to study I actually GOT SOMETHING DONE. If I had been stressed I know that I wouldv'e wasted my day and spent my last few hours doing absolutely nothing... but I didnt. ii know that whatever happens just happens and I won't be upset with the outcome.
You're probably wondering why I'm writing all this.. no, I don't have a problem and I don't need your advice.. I want you to take mine.. DONT STRESS, GIVE YOUR TIME AND ENERGY TO WHAT REALLY MATTERS, YOUR ETERNAL LIFE, GOD WHO LOVED YOU AND GAVE HIS LIFE FOR YOU... DON'T GET CAUGHT UP IN THE WORLD,,, IT'LL GET YOU NOWHERE !
