The great news is that, although I often forget about the Lord while I'm wallowing away in my mounds of lesson plans and English homework, He has never forgotten about me. Even when I realize that I haven't made a visit to my sweet African refugee family in 2 months, and I have been less than intentional with my sweet international friends, He gives me grace to find the time in my schedule to make it up the next week. I fail every day, but He picks me back up... every single time!
"And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work." -2 Cor. 9:8
His grace can abound to me even during the busiest of seasons. His grace allows me to get through a semester of classes with a strength that I know cannot come from myself- it comes from Him alone. Despite everything that demands my time and attention, He carries me through it and equips me with exactly what I need to get through each day and glorify Him in the process!
Let's not forget why we're here on earth in the first place... and taking life day by day will gain a lot more intentionality and purpose. I'm so thankful for grace.
