When You Feel Like Giving Up, Don’t Put Your Faith on Your Feelings

I have been doing my Master’s thesis for the past 16 months. I usually do it in the wee hours of the night since I have my corporate job and ministry schedules. When there is a deadline, I would only get around 2 to 3 hours of sleep in preparation for another day’s grind.
