Today is Michaelmas. Long time readers may remember that this day has a lot of memories attached to it for me.
This year, Michaelmas also has me looking forward. For there is a possibility that, this day next year, I will be about to begin studies for a one year degree (namely an M.S.) at Oxford. Yes, there would be more at stake this time than my past two Oxford stints. I would be an official student of the University of Oxford seeking an actual Oxford degree. Imagine that.
The questions are how viable is that possibility and to what extent should I pursue it. And I think I have to make a decision on that well before Christmas. So, yes, all prayers for wisdom would be appreciated.
I’m a bit torn. I know it would be a wonderful and intellectually profitable experience of a lifetime that would open doors for me. I also know that it would be hard work that would tax my no longer unlimited energy. Not to mention I have never endured an Oxford winter.
So, yes, do join me in praying for wisdom and guidance. Particularly in this area, I want to do what God wants me to do.
