I haven’t been on Tumblr a lot at all lately; I apologize for that. I was caught up with the preparations for my coming back to school and other issues. Now that the first week of classes is over, thankfully, I can post again as often as I could. :) I missed Tumblr a lot. I missed you guys a lot.
Anyway, school has been better than I had been expecting. Everyday, I learn a lot from talking to people, listening to my professors, or by just observing. I always remind myself to see and taste God’s goodness to me in every moment, and I learn from it. Every day is a reminder that I stand only on the solid foundation of His love, that I move by His power, and I function because of His grace.
This semester is not going to be simple and easy. There will be stepping out of comfort zones, meeting challenges, and venturing into new levels, but God’s got me. We are both in this together. I know that He is the reason why I am in university at all, and I know that He finishes what He started.
I believe that it’s the same with you. I may be in university, and you may be at home or work or anywhere at all, but one thing’s the same, beloved: We all have the God of the Universe for us, with us, and in us. That’s what matters.
Things I’m thankful to Abba for:
- My grades. They are definitely much, much more than what I deserved, expected and worked for. This could only be grace.
- My schedule for this semester. I’ve been given slots to the subjects I need to take. Also, I have more free time, which I did not have last semester.
- His love for me and my family.
- His on-time and always sufficient provisions.
- The rain tonight.
- His compassion.
- The refuge that I have in Him.
- The future He has secured for me.
I had been worrying about many things during the start of this vacation, and now Papa Daddy is making me realize that He had it all together right from the start. He had been making ways for me from the beginning. I’m so amazed.
So thankful to God for many things that had happened that I could not sleep yet.
Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.
The Lord is our Burden-Bearer, and on Him we must lay every care.
God says, in effect, ‘Be careful of nothing, but make your requests known to Me, and I will attend to them all.’
