Ever Over?

It's been a loooong day, and I'm so ready for it to be over. I've been trudging through homework and other responsibilities all day, and I'm exhausted. The worst part is that it's still not over. I have more homework to finish and a test to study for. Besides all of that, I'm burdened for my brother who isn't following God and my friend who's dying of brain cancer. Bethy's only 15, and it's so hard to hear that she's slowly slipping away... :(

In the midst of all the pain and suffering, I can only turn my eyes on Jesus. I am so thankful that Beth is a Christian and has been trusting God throughout her sickness. She's been a light for Christ, never letting weakness stop her from spreading the Good News, and I praise God for that. He's so faithful.

Please pray for Bethy and her family. I know that they'll appreciate it if you do!

Today I was reading older posts on this blog and came across this verse:

Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen. ~Ephesians 3:20-21

It really struck me and I just stopped and pondered the words. My day was tough, but God sprinkled so many blessings throughout it, like seeing my friends at lunch, having a decent interview for a Christian summer camp, eating dinner with a really good friend (after arriving all by myself and feeling a little lonely), and working in a computer lab with the same friend and another friend until a few minutes before curfew. Then I got back to my dorm room and found that a friend had sent me an encouraging note. God blessed me so much today, and helped me accomplish more than I thought I could. Glory to God forever and ever.

In Christ,
