I was a young man when an older friend prayed this for me, “Lord, help him to lay foundations strong enough to bear the weight you will later place on him.”
That prayer I share with you on this significant day of your completion of a degree and your commencement into what the Lord has yet for you.
You’ve taken the time to lay some strong foundations in your life. You leave the school today far better equipped than when you entered, and with a bunch of friends that you have made over these years. Your faculty, administration, and fellow students have all sowed excellently into your life; and your family and friends have supported and cheered you on.
Now, go out and build on the strong foundation you have received here. Go with the Lord’s blessing and favor. You have only one life – so make it count!
On behalf of the Assemblies of God, heartfelt congratulations to you!
For Christ and His Kingdom,
Dr. George O. Wood
