GrassWell, the results are in and it’s official: I failed the Math GRE. I guess I won’t be worrying about graduation for a while. God must have a greater plan. Thank you all for your prayers and encouragement as I prepared for and took this test.
So now what? Now I either have to spend about two years completing math correspondence courses or switch majors. I know two years sounds like a long time to complete this degree when I’m so close, but I’m not sure I can take more than one or two math correspondence courses at a time, and I need about 21 more math credits. Maybe I can challenge some classes, but it’s still going to take a while.
I’m considering the possibility of changing my major to Business Administration, Computer Science, or Computer Info Systems. Anyway, I’m planning to stick with this until the end. I’m still happy with the way I’m pursuing this degree since it has saved me TONS of money and time and has allowed me to run my business at the same time….this is just a small delay in the process.
Please pray that I would be sensitive to the Lord’s leading and trust and obey Him fully.

Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Proverbs 3:5-6
