I hope you have a great attitude today!
May the God of hope fill you with all joy
and peace as you trust in him,
so that you may overflow with hope
by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Thank you for your prayers. I went to the learning center yesterday afternoon straight from work. There was someone to help with accounting and….drum roll please….I think a light bulb lit up. Well, maybe not a light bulb, maybe it was a small birthday candle that got lit, but I got a slightly better understanding of some of the things I didn’t understand. The lady who helped me had taken this class with the same instructor and had a bit of insight into him as well. Whatever…I am not under any illusion that this will be easy, but I am not so upset that I think I can’t do it. It is after all, accounting…not brain surgery!
When I read the above scripture this morning, I realized that is the feeling I have about this class after yesterday. “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” I believe He wants us to trust him in ALL things…I prayed about taking this class, was pretty sure it was what I was supposed to do and now I need to trust that it is still the right thing, hard though it may be. Settling for less than the best (an “A” in this case) will be a bit of a challenge for me. I do not mean to say that I need or have the best of “things,” I mean that I try to DO my best in things that I undertake. I want to do my best and get a good grade…in this case, a good grade may be a “B” or…gulp…a “C”…ouch! Maybe I am getting ahead of myself here…let me get thorough the third week of class and see what happens.
we can adjust the sails.
Too many people miss the silver lining
because they’re expecting gold.
