Interview Is Over

My interview for the B.Ed. program is now over. There was approximately half an hour of question answering in front of a panal consisting of two of the education profs and the woman who is the coordinator of the education program (she didn't ask any questions, but listened and jotted things down from time to time). One of the professors did most of the talking and asking questions, and then the other explained what the education program entails, the amount of work involved in the first year, etc.

The second part consisted of being given a question and having to write on it. The coordinator of the program took me to another room and explained the writing assignment. On the way to do this, she commented that she thought I did well.

At the time, and for a short while afterwards, I felt that I did not do too badly. However, now I am having second thoughts and doubts that I didn't answer the questions well enough or with the "right" answers.

The coordinator told me that we won't find out until early June whether or not we are accepted. She also said that the size of the envelope doesn't matter (she said that people think that if they get a thin letter it means they didn't get in, and if it is thick then they did because it would be filled with info on the course, etc.), that regardless of the answer, the envelope will be thin.

Well, this is now in God's hands, and I can't do anything about it - I can't go back in time to change my answers or anything. So, I am going to try to not worry about it - but that will only happen if I give the situation to God. He is the only one who can give me the strength to deal with this (and the results, regardless of what they are). If I try to rely on my own strength, I can guarantee you that I will run out quickly, and I will also continue to worry and fret over this. So, God...please take it!

Luke 12:25 And which of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life's span?

Don't worry, Shelley! All will work out! I'll be praying!

Just like satan to make you doubt your efforts. Just tell him: GET BACK TO WHERE YOU CAME FROM AND LEAVE ME ALONE! You are God's child and He's taking care of everything. Hallelujah.

Jennifer said...

Shelley, don't do that to yourself!!! You felt great when you left. Now it is just the old devil trying to plant bad thoughts in your mind. I would have passed out in the middle of the interview if it were me. Sounds tough!

Jayleigh said...

Of course you did well, dear friend. **hugs**

We're always the most critical of ourselves. You probably knocked their socks off!

Joe said...

I would try to say something profound like, "Son't worry," but that would seem simplistic.

But don't worry.

It won't make you any taller.

Hey, God's hands are the best place for anything to be left!

PS. This is a cool blog Shelley,
where did you get the stuff on the right hand column? I'm such a novice:)

Wait for the Lord; be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the Lord. Psalm 27:14 I hope that will help you! Bonnie

I double what everyone said! You're in God's hands...I will pray

As you have said - It's all in His hands now.
I always find it difficult to have confidence in myself but don't put yourself down Shelley - it is Satan that is the deceiver.
Praying for you.

I'm glad you got through it! I was wondering how it went. I will pray that God's peace ministers to you right now as you wait! Wait on the Lord and put your hope it Him!! :)
