I can’t believe that I’m sharing this s testimony today. I was just a silent reader of this page and it is where I searched for encouragement during my review. For a non-native English speaker like me, IELTS exam is really a challenging one. especially because I’m working and at the same time reviewing.
During those times, I tried to do everything on my own. I forgot to pray and I completely immersed myself in my review. Finally, when I decided to take the exam last September 4, 2021, I asked my supervisor if I can take a 1 week leave just to finalize everything before the big day. Unfortunately, He just approved 4 days for me to sort everything out and get done with my exam.
So I began to pray to God. I said,
“God, if it’s your will, then may your will be done and not mine.”
I was reminded by the promise of Romans 8:28 that God works for our good “in all things” is reassuring. It means that no matter the circumstance, there are only two qualifiers for God to be working all things together for our good. … Those who love God are called according to His purpose. So I hold on to this promise.
The moment that I surrendered my exam to God, I felt peace in my heart, a peace that is so satisfying that I completely feel that whatever the results of my exam, God will work it for my good. On the actual exam, I wasn’t nervous, in fact, I listened to music before the exam started. I was so calm and I just kept saying
“Lord, Your will be done, you know the desires of my heart but may your will be done.”
After the exam, I was a bit unsure if I’m gonna pass because it was really a challenging one and I didn’t expect that I’ll pass. But then when I received my results after 4 days, I can’t believe my eyes! My scores are more than what I expected to get. And that God truly kept His promise. I will be forever grateful to the God that I served. Even if it is impossible with man, but in God everything is possible. To God be the glory and Honor and praise.
