This week on the blog, I have had the opportunity to share with you what I learned though my first semester of classes at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and what I have learned through experiences. Today, I will be sharing with you my overall reflections of seminary life.
As you have read this week, I have learned a lot from five months at seminary. I gained a lot of head knowledge. I learned a lot about what is important to me.
I would be lying if I said that there were moments when I did not regret my decision. It was not always daisy's and roses. There were moments when all I wanted was to have coffee with a friend from home or to go shopping with my mom, watch a movie with my roommate at 311 or play with the kids I nanny-ed, get froyo with a friend from home or go to my home church. There were times when professors were challenging my church choice but God was confirming my church choice, and I figured life would be easier if I quit and went home.
I am glad I stuck it out. I am stronger on the other side of the semester than I was going into it. I can't wait for my second semester of seminary to begin on January 23rd. I am thankful that God chose me to do His work. I am thankful for every tough lesson I had to learn this semester.
The best is yet to come!
