Joining the world of academia has hurled many complications into my simple life. As an aspiring future Criminologist and other stuff God has for me in the pipeline, I am often confronted with the disturbances of ‘professional’ life. Over-thinking is the norm; time wasted while looking into nothingness and thinking about what this life is all about, what I exist for; Raking my mind senseless while trying to make sense of this life.
Racing through campus, meeting with lecturers and studying with friends, no matter how much I try to understand life, pulling through its fibers in need of air, sand-skating the Kalahari in search of more, I found a spring of living water in Jesus Christ. I pray for the gate out of the wilderness and I hear God’s voice saying to me, ‘Pamela, I AM the gate. The way, the truth and the life.’
I now know that despite all the scholars of old could theorize, despite the extraordinary explanations science makes for the things we do in our lives, God is the answer to everything. My story is that of seeking; myself, my art, my hopes, my future, but I remember daily not to take my time in such wistful thoughts. God is whom I’ve ever needed in my life, no matter how far I stray. Each day, I look forward to the rising sun and smile. He is the reason why I am here. He is the reason I am.
Eu sei agora que apesar de todos os estudantes de velho poderia teorizar, apesar da ciência de explicações extraordinária traz as coisas que nós fazemos em nossas vidas, Deus é a resposta a tudo. Minha história é isso de buscar; eu, minha arte, minhas esperanças, meu futuro, mas eu nos lembramos de não levar meu tempo em tais pensamentos saudosos diariamente. Deus é quem precisei alguma vez eu em minha vida, não importa como distante eu vagueio. Cada dia, eu espero ansiosamente pelo sol nascente e sorriso. Ele é a razão por que eu estou aqui. Ele é a razão por que eu sou.
