In this video Ying-Shan Su describes her experience during the spring of 2016. Ying-Shan was the picture of gloomy resignation in the weeks after she was not accepted at Maryland U., where she had hoped to do graduate work. Then Philippians 3 changed her thinking. She realized that her happiness was not dependent on acceptance into a graduate program because she has something much greater: the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus her Lord! A friend, Yong-En, asked why God waited so long before giving her the acceptance letter she now possesses. The answer seems clear: God had something better than acceptance at Maryland to give Ying-Shan.
