This Week’s Verse: “His divine power has given us everything required for life and godliness through the knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and goodness.” 2 Peter 1:3 (HSCB)
I have never been more thankful to follow a God who loves, comforts, and cares for me.
This semester (this school year, really) has been one full of new and unique challenges. For me personally, I’ve had a lot of personal and professional challenges present themselves, and I’ve found myself getting discouraged and more stressed out than normal.
During this difficult season, I’ve also had a hard time doing my quiet time with God, which I’m sure is contributing to some of that.
As the semester has progressed and new things to worry about have come up, some of those old worries fell away and resolved themselves. Problems I hadn’t bothered to think about have started yielding positive results because I’ve been learning to take better care of my mental health.
Truthfully, when February rolled around, I thought the semester was going to be an awful one. It’s turned out to be one full of community, personal growth, and thankfulness for the opportunity to learn.
If you’re like me and have trouble focusing on the good God is doing in your life, I encourage you to take a few minutes out of your day and count your blessings. God is always at work in our lives, even when we can’t see it. Be thankful for the things He’s doing in your life and for what He’s already done for you.
Prayer: Father, thank You for Your provision for my life. Thank You for always providing for me and knowing what’s best for my life. Amen.
