My Christmas present this year is a letter from the court saying I owe $406 in order to pay my fine and clear my point with traffic school. That means I’ll be kissing my paycheck goodbye the moment it comes in my mail. :(!
Have you ever had a day where almost everything you do frustrates you? I’m having one of those days today. I feel like I am so not together with my assignments. I forgot this and that in sections of this and that. And feeling like I’m using up an entire tree doesn’t help either.
But Praise the Lord today. I have no idea how I got the grade I got on my test that I took Monday, but He gave it to me. I am so grateful for a mistake another professor made that ended up with me getting extra points on an assignment. I am so thankful for extra credit points that will help me worry less about these things called grades. I am thankful that today I get to see God’s grace and sovereignty in everything, because honestly, I have no idea how things are the way it is right now.
"Be still and know that I am God." That’s all I know for sure.
No matter what challenges you face today, take comfort that God knows every issue on your heart and is able to shoulder your burdens. Hold fast to the faithful One. Your challenges do not fall outside the scope of God’s ability to intervene. God is mysterious, He’s powerful, and He’s able! When you lift your eyes from your situation and fix them on your Savior - when you choose to trust Him - you will find peace in the pain and strength in the struggle.
I can hear ya’ll saying I told you so right now. Whatever. I was having an awesome, terrific, and splendid day until I saw them lights. It’s okay, I’m over it now and I’m going to continue to dwell in my good day mode. My day was awesome, terrific, and splendid because I got to see YOU on a random Tuesday, even if it was only for 3.5 hours! Thanks for being the awesome, terrific, and splendid in my life even when the rest isn’t so wonderful.
