As I was driving in the rain, I was at awe at how God provides, not just the finances through working, but his grace to accomplish his will. He doesn’t just control the time but he also shifts the seasons of life. His grace is magnificent in our struggles, I was struggling learning greek, I turned in a lot of assignments late (just being real with you all), I kept falling asleep doing so, I had a hard time memorizing the words, so I just pictured every word in my mind, I also wrote on flashcards and did home workouts to keep me awake and engaged. I also remember that I would still spend a lot of time reading the bible to keep me grounded on the bigger purpose of learning greek. I also had to give up on a lot to focus on not failing the class. And finally, today, I just checked my grades, I received a B- That’s God. I always ask him to please continue to provide his will and his favor if it’s his will, and for him to remove his grace if I’m outside of his will.
I know some of you might ask why I’m learning greek, It’s part of the curriculum I’m studying as a seminary student, and I also want to understand God’s original words in the new testament, which were in the greek language. I’m actually noticing that while I study greek I understand much better a lot of the things that pastors and teachers of the word have taught me, when I study it in my own time, it comes ALIVE!!!! I pray that whatever you study, it comes ALIVE when you reflect on it in your own time!!!!!
I love Jesus, his words and supernatural grace coming alive in my heart and life.
I have so much to catch up on, hope to make the best of this break from school, even though I would be having more hours of work, I hope to write more, to spend more time recharging to get clarity on what the Lord wants me to do next year, that’s my main goal, to rest in the Lord, and as I rest, he will lead my schedule 🙂
Anyway, I hope you each enjoy the rain in your own way, the plants, trees, and some animals need it. Hope the rain reminds you that God is in control of your season and every detail of it. He wants us to enjoy and embrace this season. I work with teen girls, and I usually get a lot of insights while I work, that their season as a teenager is really short, but when they go through it on a daily basis it seems a big struggle and at many times painful, the best they can do is make the best out of it. And the best I have learned to do is to not have work be all of my life, it’s just part of it, and while I’m at it, I better enjoy it, make wise decisions of every paycheck, and trust that what I don’t see right now in my natural eyes, God is working on it.
