A Man of 27, a Master of Geology, and His God of Grace

Friday, August 7, 2015

“But by the grace of God I am what I am…” (1 Corinthians 15:10a KJV).

Saints, today is a special day for two reasons. Firstly, today is my 27th birthday! Secondly, I am graduating college with a master’s degree in geology!

These past 27 years have been quite a joy, despite the many “valleys.” Furthermore, I have spent one-third of my life in college—those nine years (4 1/2 years as an undergraduate and 4 1/2 years as a graduate student) were fun as well. All of these years have just flown by and two major chapters of my life have now closed. What a thrilling concept! There is a certain sadness to it as well, I suppose. I now have to adjust to many new circumstances.

I still have a lot more to learn about life and in life, but I thank our God and Father for preserving me all these years and shielding me from the evil world system that Satan intended to use to defile me. The men and women who played a vital role in my physical life as well as my spiritual life and my intellectual life, I will never forget them—my parents, my two older brothers, my friends and classmates, my teachers and professors, pastors, and many others. While not everything they taught me was good information, it did greatly sharpen me and cause me to better appreciate God’s truths that I learned as a small child.

So, what now, you ask? I have not yet made any final decisions, but I do have a tentative schedule with prospective goals. It does involve Earth science, that I know. We will see where ministry takes me as well. On one hand it is exciting, but on the other the mysterious part of it produces some anxiety. 🙂 For those of you who have prayed for me all these years, thank you from the bottom of my heart. We can now see that those prayers were not in vain. Our Lord Jesus Christ did a mighty work and we rejoice in Him that He has some wonderful plans to come!

Christian ambassador (Shawn Brasseaux)

Grace and peace! What a privilege to be an ambassador for the risen Christ here on WordPress! I am a Pauline dispensationalist Christian saved by grace through faith in Christ Jesus plus nothing! My goal is to "have all men saved, and come to the knowledge of the truth" (1 Timothy 2:3,4). I seek to preach Jesus Christ crucified for our sins, buried, and raised again for our justification as the only way to salvation. Also, I seek to edify and perfect the saints using dispensational Bible study and the Authorized Version King James Bible!
