life beyond the well…

the WORD of the day…


if you’ve talked to me over the course of this week, you know it’s been one of my more challenging weeks. between unexpected car expenses, not-so-good news about a job, and teaching students who sometimes just don’t want to act right- i’ve been feeling pretty discouraged.

on my way to school this morning, my ipod randomly played “all things are working” by fred hammond, and the lyrics really spoke to me:

“All things are working for me, even things I can’t see
Your ways are so beyond me,
but You said that you would let it be for my good,
so I’ll rest and just believe…
The truth is He cannot lie,
I’m in His hands and I’m on his mind,
promised me He’d always be there,
so by faith He will answer my prayer…”

so yeah…i’m trying to be encouraged. and i fully agree with what mother teresa has said: “i know that God won’t give me anything i can’t handle. i just wish he didn’t trust me so much.”

  1. it’s all a process. be determined to learn from this week. it’ll make next week’s challenges a lot easier. and you’ll get tighter by the second.

  2. 1 Peter 5:8-10

  3. Best regards from NY!
