I had a conversation with the Hubs today, on the way home from school. We've talked to death about how nervous I am to apply to the Nursing Program at my school. It is no secret that it remains highly competitive, and I am even more competitive when it comes to grades. Acceptance letters went out recently and I've found that I am comparing myself to the people that I know, who have been accepted. Not a fun place to be.
We are under a lot of pressure to find a house. Time is running out, and we have about 3 weeks to get under contract to receive the tax credit... in the grand scheme of things, not a make or break deal, but enough to light the fire :)
Here is what I realized on the way home from school...
I do not have the power to control anything in this life. I cannot do any of the above mentions on my own. HE on the other hand controls the day to day, literally everything in my life and leads me according to his will. My wants and wishes are granted based on the things that give him glory.
The world will tell you everyday that you cannot do.. (insert personal situation here). And on your own, you may not, but with his help we can do anything.
Here is my achievement for the week. Sugar Mama recognizes all upper case and lower case letters, and we've started on sight words. This past week she read her first sentence. A matter of weeks ago, her preschool said she couldn't go to school there because she wasn't ready, in fact she wouldn't be ready for public school either. My video says other wise. God is good in everymoment...
His presence in our lives is enough. Merely touching the hem of his garment was enough to heal the body. He made the lame walk, the blind see, the deaf hear, even the dead rise. He wept, felt, cared, and was perfect. Even the disciples who walked daily with him, were astounded when he rose from the grave.. conquered death.. not only rose from it, but is ALIVE today.
When the world says you cannot.. remember that when he lives in you, so does his power. When they say it cannot be done, remember it can, because he did it first. We will never be in a situation that he hasn't walked through first, and is therefore he is the master of it to begin with. No matter what happens in this life, he gets the glory for all of it, and when it comes time to apply to the nursing program I pray it happens, and even if it doesn't he will still get the glory.. this is his life, I'm merely his vessel and remain thankful that he let me have even a little part of it.
Today I am Thankful for:
Stress: The kind that gives me pause... makes me panic just a little, then the realization that it was never in my control anyways. He is good, always, never a time when he is not, and I appreciate the not so subtle reminders :)
