Getting back into the “school” mode has been pretty hard this year. It is nice to get back in touch with all of my friends at school but boy do I miss days when there is nothing that has to get done. Instead of snuggling into my bed at around 3 p.m. to read a book I sit at my desk doing homework. And instead of waking up at eight or nine each morning, my sleepy eyes open at 5:50 a.m. ! Even though its sad to have to get back into the routine I pray for strength from God every day and the Lord answers my prayers. Although I have to sit in class until school is out, Jesus sustains me. I can find encouragement and joy in His embrace.Psalm 46:1God is our refuge and stength,an ever-present help in trouble.Psalm 34:1-3I will extol the Lord at all times;his praise will always be on my lips.I will glory in the Lord;let the afflicted hear and rejoice.Glorify the Lord with me;let us exalt his name together.
