Wrapping it up....

This semester is wrapping up for me. What does that mean? Test, Test and more test. I can't believe the amount of test I have and the material they have yet to cover in the next couple of weeks. It's mind blowing. I have a test tomorrow, and Wednesday. Then two test on the same day next Wednesday, and honestly wonder when it will end. Well, I know the actual date, but the amount of information I must memorize and retain between now and then is overwhelming.

Matthew 6:33-34 says: But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

It's a verse we hear all the time but sometimes forget to do first. I get so bogged down with the day to day duties of life, kids, work, school, marriage, that I tend to forget to seek what I've been directed to.

I'm only human. I know I'm not the only one who forgets. Especially in times like right now. I'm overwhelmed. But I don't want to feel overwhelmed. I want to know that I have no worries. There are no worries except for those that I create. If I haven't studied enough, then that's my fault. I know what I need to get the job done, I just have to lay everything down.

I'm at that point in the semester when I hear myself and my body saying "I can't do it all". But there is always a time in every semester that you can find me saying that. :o) I don't have much longer to go. I am less than 3 weeks away from finishing another semester. It won't be my last. And I can guarantee you now, it will NOT be my hardest. I am the strongest person I know because I believe in what the power of God can do in my life. Not sure I could have made it this far without him.
Only 19 more days until it's over. I'm now counting.

Brenda, just know that there are those of us who are keeping you in our thoughts as you finish up this semester. Yes, it is very tough trying to juggle it all...(I'm hoping my child will see the advantage of getting her degree while she's young and unmarried versus trying to raise a family, work, etc). Keep pushing, and counting the days! The end will be here before you know it and I'm confident you will pass! Thinking of you today!!

Thanks Linda! I'm not losing hope at all. I love what I'm doing but I wish I would have done it at a younger age. However, I think I am more determined as an older student to make better grades and finish. It really is flying by so fast and even the more I get into it, I find better ways to study to get the most knowledge out of what I'm doing. This will truly be rewarding job when I'm finished. For now...the goal is to finish the race without falling over. ;o)
Love you!
