While I’m not receiving results, I know of people who are, and man is it nerve-wrecking. All the self-condemnation based upon past hurts and failures built many students into balls of nerves. Most people I know passed and promoted, though perhaps by a hairline. They gotta buck up hard, or else they would get wrecked by Block Test 1, one of the evilest of exams.
The other big result: the US Presidential Election, was equally, if not even more nerve-wrecking. Many were dismayed in shock that Trump won, but I’m glad its finally over. It almost felt like an American Brexit, one well needed one to restore conservative influence into the world.
I was nervous for both: the Promos results and the Election results, way more than I was nervous for my own A-level results. The wait was intense. But totally satisfying after they ended.
We grow in waiting in nervousness. In our nervousness, we choose to trust God. In all things, though maybe not FOR all things, we thank God and believe He is good and faithful to take us through.
