Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.

This week I haven’t done the greatest job of being very strong or courageous. Worries about how to pay for books and tuition for school, trying to figure out what to do with a car with a rusting brake line, feeling very far away from home.

I realized partially through the week that I was trying to do it all on my own strength. Being the responsible, organized, controlling person that I am, this is easy for me to do! I had to stop, take a deep breath (or several), and ask, “God what are you trying to teach me?” I’m still trying to hang on to Him rather stress myself out over all that is going on. I am so thankful that my God will never leave me nor forsake me. He has a purpose in all that has happened this week! Maybe I won’t learn all of the lessons right away, but I’m letting go of my own control, and holding on more to my Heavenly Father. What an adventure this will be!
