I have been incredibly busy and have neglected this blog terribly. I have started several posts, and have especially worked on my current series, but I have not been able to finish them yet. I’m going to spend the next 30 minutes or so trying to update these posts, but then I probably won’t be able to write again for several more days.
These last few weeks have been busy with yearbook meetings, faculty recital, half-marathon training, and school work. I thought I wasn’t going to make it through this week, but the Lord was gracious and kept supplying His strength in my weakness. Again, this weekend is full (with the half-marathon and then a yearbook work meeting tomorrow, church on Sunday, and the yearbook deadline on Monday), and then I’ll have a ton of grading to do before the quarter ends on Friday.
I’ve been overwhelmed at many times, but I’ve also been clinging to God’s Word and trusting in Christ to deliver me and in the Holy Spirit to give wisdom and direction about daily activities.
2 “Behold, God is my salvation;
I will trust, and will not be afraid;
for the LORD GOD is my strength and my song,
and he has become my salvation. ”
3 With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation.
4 And you will say in that day:
“Give thanks to the LORD,
call upon his name,
make known his deeds among the peoples,
proclaim that his name is exalted.
5 “Sing praises to the LORD, for he has done gloriously;
let this be made known in all the earth.
6 Shout, and sing for joy, O inhabitant of Zion,
for great in your midst is the Holy One of Israel. “
