Finals got you Stressed?


Dear Gems,

If you’re a student like me, whenever this time of the semester rolls around you already know what tries to creep into your system – stress, anxiety, worry, YOU NAME IT #ShirleyCaesar

But before you go thinking about how much work you still need to do – take a deep breath and tell yourself, “I’m going to make it.”

Pushing through those final papers, projects, and presentations can be challenging. You see the finish line but still have this huge test to pass just to get there. It’s like when a parent pours their child a cup of juice and says “you can’t drink this until you eat all of your food” – but the juice is literally in front of their eyes, within reach.

So what do you do?

Stay disciplined, and finish strong.

Finishing the semester strong is within your reach. Passing your finals is within your reach. It may take some late nights, discipline, and determination but you will make it through if you give it all you’ve got. You’ve made it this far. Why slow down now?

As you push through your finals week, here are a few motivating quotes to get you through the end of your semester:

“Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another steppingstone to greatness.” – Oprah Winfrey

“It was character that got us out of bed, commitment that moved us into action, and discipline that enabled us to follow through.” Zig Ziglar

 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7

“If you listen to these commands of the Lord your God that I am giving you today, and if you carefully obey them, the Lord will make you the head and not the tail, and you will always be on top and never at the bottom.” – Deuteronomy 28:13

Remember, you got this! & when you feel like you don’t, God has your back and will help you in times of need.

Blessings & Love,
