The lee family undergrad graduation is scheduled for May 11th! I cant believe it. This time at Southeastern has shaped, ripped and re-created us both for the glory of God. So thankful for this growing and trying experience, but definitely ready to move on to the real world... wherever that next move takes us. Many opportunities and possibilities lie ahead of us and can only be understood through our continued prayer tot he LORD.
Life has taken so many changes and all can only be taken in with blind faith in the LORD. God has allowed us to rent a small one bedroom at such a low rate that is month to month with no contract!! The area is quiet and perfect just for the two of us to finish our studies strong and grow in wisdom of the LORD. God has worked His plan without us even realizing its taking place, and by faith we have walked through these things with uncertainty at times, but knew that God controlled our lives.
Dozier took off spring of '11 to work and get us out of debt. In doing so, we did not believe he would graduate with me until 2013.... but my favorite phrase "but God!" He never once left us even though we cried out for change in the midst of his physically challenging job. Exhaustion, loneliness and a trip to the ER kept us on our knees in prayer during the time he worked and I attended classes.
Finally, about 1 week before classes resumed the next fall of '11, we finally cried our last cry and saw it the right time to inquire about him returning to school. Long story short, he could return and finish May of '12 by changing his minor to history. I must shout right now that this is a passion of his!! Of course, he decided right there to make the switch and finished work on Friday and began classes the next Tuesday. With maxed hours and service learning (volunteer activities required by SEBC) with his last two semesters, we will now both graduate together May 11, 2012 and finally be done! God has plans for us we still do not know about even with graduation one week away. Our desire is to teach the word of God, through academics and in a classroom setting. We both believe our hands could not have made happen what did happen with our final few semesters but knowing God is completely using us, all for HIS GLORY!!
LORD please continue allowing us a mustard seed of faith each day to continue your plan with out us making a human mess of things. Grow our faith and use us LORD to bring people to know Your Son Jesus and to radicalize this world, one person and country at a time. We serve You with each breath, thought and action. Guide us LORD, in all Your ways and truth. Amen
