Daily Digest #356

Blessing and honor and glory and power be to Him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, forever and ever! —Revelation 5:13

If you can remember my previous posts, you may have felt a sense of worry and lack of faith. Our grad school class was really anxious about how the debates and research papers would turn out. Our prof was giving us a difficult time in class, encouraging us to drop the course if we wouldn't take it seriously. Everyone admitted that he/she has never worked so hard since college! All I could do was pray, that everybody gave it his/her best shot, and that the professor would be in a really good mood.

You know what? Our prayers have been answered! Not only did everybody endure till the last minute, but our professor also turned out to be kind-hearted, and was an excellent mediator. Honestly, we were all surprised to find ourselves appreciating the class in the end. We learned more than we expected, and gained more friends. It was an extraordinary experience for a multi-cultural class of 60 :D.

I couldn't help but rejoice and thank God more for helping each of us endure and persevere till the end. Last week, I couldn't imagine how all of these would end (I was seriously juggling tasks at work and in school). For this, please join me in prayer... Lord, thank You for the strength and courage to face the every-day challenges on our way. We thank You for sending us your angels -- encouraging us, giving us hope, making us smile in spite of everything. We thank You for the relationships you have blessed us with. Please protect our family, our friends, our workplaces and our neighborhood. These we ask in Jesus' name. Amen.
