One of Andrea’s fellow doctoral students is a believer (in Christ I mean), and often posts those sorts of messages about the love of Jesus on facebook that are bewildering to someone who grew up in a more secular setting.
They were talking on the bus the other day, and he encouraged Andrea not to stress about her research, but to let god stress for her.
Andrea replied that god doesn’t do research, to which the response was that god does do research, through you.
So relax, let god work through you, perform research through you.
Now the specifics of this I don’t really agree with, but I can’t argue with the idea.
Do your work, but don’t stress about it, trust that it will all come out well in the end.
