I know the school year is right around the corner for most High School and College Students and I just wanted to write a note of encouragement to start off the school year. I just completed my 8th class for my MBA program and I have to tell you it was very difficult during the first 3 weeks of class. I didn’t know what the professor wanted for homework questions and had a break down during the third week and was ready to quit the class. I knew I wasn’t a quitter, but I didn’t think there was any way I could pass this class and I was right.
On my own, there wasn’t going to be any way that I could pass this class and when I was driving in the car in my third week, I prayed to My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and ask him to give me the strength and wisdom and no matter what the outcome of the class, I was going to give him all the glory for it. During the hard, bad, and good times he will always get the credit first. Philippians 4:13 states “I can do all things through Christ who give me strength. This was the one verse that was coming to my mind as I was driving in the car.
Another verse that also came to mind was Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” These two verses really helped me that day. Today, I found out what my final grade was and I was so happy that God gave me the strength and wisdom to earn a 98.23% for my overall grade. I praise the Lord so much because 8 weeks ago I was ready to give up, and today he allowed me to earn a great grade.
