Truly grateful and humbled to receive the Best Graduate Research Paper Award for this year 🙏🏻
As I read Matthew 5 this morning, verse 16 made my heart well up with joy and gratitude.
“Even so let your light shine before men; that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16)
Since there’s a story behind every award, allow me to share mine.
Few days before the submission of my paper, I fell ill. I actually had dengue fever but that didn’t stop me from writing my research proposal. I called upon the Lord for help and asked Him for guidance, wisdom and inner strength to go on. In the end, all the effort paid off. So to those who feel like giving up on any difficult task or excruciating time pressure to accomplish a certain project, just submit it to the God of peace. When things seem chaotic and out of control, remember that God is sovereign and He is always in control. The Lord is with you and will be with you to give you strength to take one more step. His presence will enable you to finish it and the result will appear to be astoundingly a success. To God be the glory, praise and honor!
