I have really been down these last couple of weeks. I have no idea how on earth I keep up with everything, I feel like a robot: get up, eat, class, work, eat, class, work, homework, sleep. repeat. If I want time for anytime else, it cuts into my sleep time. The Lord has been so good to me, and without His strength I feel like I would be dead at this point. I am just so tired. If I do not come before the Lord each day, literally on my knees asking for His strength, soaking as much of His Word in that I can, I couldn’t make it. It has made me specifically think of how incredibly hard it must be for single working moms...I couldn't even imagine. And it makes my heart ache for them…who am I to complain? They never get a break.
These next two weeks are Spring Break here at the Moody Bible Institute, so I am staying in
to work and maybe get some good hours in. Last night I got 8 hours of sleep for the first time in 4 weeks (which does wonders, let me tell you). Chicago
The funny thing is...now that I think about it, is that I don't really know if I am going to get a "break" at all this year. I have 2 1/2 months left of this semester, then I go home for a month and work/prepare for this summer internship, then it looks like I might go straight back to Chicago from Amsterdam and start work back up again and then school 2 weeks later. The next break I'll have then would be Christmas Break. wow. ok then. Thanks 2011, you are nuts! But the neat thing is, He says to us "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christs power may rest on me. (2 Corinthians 12:9)
- That I would get some rest over break
- That I could catch up on all my homework
