Faith Passed My Test!
So It took me a lot of luck to get into this GED program. I’m not very academically smart. So It was hard to pass the requirements to get into the program. Every month they hold the test you have to take which was mathematics, reading, writing, science and social studies.
The first time I took the test I passed social studies and writing. The second month I passed reading, and the third month I passed science, finally.
But every time i took the test I failed math. Everyone in the program passed and I never saw them again unless it was for questions they had to apply to colleges. I felt happy for them but then I finally started to realize they must have been doing something different. They were as dumb as I was! Just kidding! But they all passed.
I woke up one morning and told myself I need to pass this test. So I began acting as if I already passed my test, talking to people as if I had my diploma. I began visualizing and seeing myself hanging up my diploma. Everyday I told myself “I have my high School diploma”.
The day of my test I didn’t really understand the mathematics. I looked at it Like I did before, but I told myself I already have my high school diploma. After a week the results came in on Monday. I was confident, but yet scared because I knew if I didn’t pass it this time I would have to wait until next year to retake all the tests, even the ones I passed.
I didn’t go monday. I went wednesday. The ride through I was happy and confident, singing and laughing with my brother. I walked in and my teacher told me he was proud of me because I didn’t give up. I was already thinking I was a failure and blah blah, he said I had a lot of potential and I was just waiting for him to tell me I failed.
He handed me my paper and I passed! I was so happy! I won’t ever doubt myself again or think I’m not good enough. I was always being told all I had was good looks and nothing more. I see this as a doorway to success and life is easy.
I know this doesn’t seem like a great testimony, but for me it was a life changing experience because I learned how to have faith.:)
