[ SEPTEMBER 6]
The Possible Dream
Roy Laugrey Libores
Jesus said to them, “With people this is impossible, but with God all things are possible. – Matthew 19:26, NASB.
I got extremely excited as I thought of my impossible dream coming into
reality, little by little. But that afternoon, when I entered the testing room, I was disappointed
to see another examiner, not the instructor I talked to that morning.
“I’m sorry, I can’t allow you to take the test,” the examiner confirmed.
“You were scheduled in the morning,” she continued.
I was so frustrated and so were my companions. “Now my impossible
dream will remain impossible forever,” I moaned. But we were determined.
With much prayers we had no other alternative but to seek the help of the
highest administrator in the area.
I claimed the promise of Luke 1:37— “Nothing will be impossible with
God.” Praise God! Before the end of the day we were able to take the test.
After two months my heart pounded hard and fast while checking on the
results. I finally found my name among the list of passers, “Praise God,
now I can enroll in college!” I exclaimed.
So I returned to AUP—no longer as a construction worker but as a
working student. I started as caretaker of the Academy gymnasium/
auditorium. Today I’m still a working student in Academy while trying
my best to finish my dream—Bachelor of Science in Education major in
Looking back, God has been so good to me—for giving me good parents,
Ma’am Heidi, ALS, the Academy, and the College of Education. As I repay
God’s goodness, aside from my regular work and studies I was given the
opportunity to teach other students like me in the ALS program of COE
even if I still have a year or two to finish my degree.
I will never stop praising God for finding ways to make my impossible
dream come true. I know it will come. I just need to hold on.
