Let Go and Let God

This school semester is turning out to be my toughest yet! Not only do a majority of my classes have difficult content to comprehend, but they also require a lot of work from me. I guess having 5 classes might play a role as well :P I've got a lot of work ahead of me and not much time for myself or others, which I really don't like. Today I had an Oceanography test and I'm pretty sure I got a D on it; a C if I'm fortunate enough. I hope my whole academic semester doesn't turn out like this. I also got a D on my Psychology test, which I'm not too proud of either. It feels like I'm falling apart educationally and that doesn't comfort me in any way. But God has definitely blessed me with a friend that I can study with, so that gives me hope :) The things is, I don't want to have to put off spending time with my friends, especially best friends, and family, all so I can study. I need to have some kind of recreation time to myself as well, otherwise I'd go insane, you know? This all has caused my motivation to get into God's Word to dwindle a bit and that's not good 'cause that in turn can give Satan the foothold he desires. I've also had a lot on my mind recently...All these changes God has been doing in my life can sure be overwhelming (or seemingly) at times, but I remember that God's Word says that He will never allow anything to happen to us that we can't bear. And Jeremiah 29:11 says that He has a great plan for my life; a plan to give me a hope and a future and not to harm me! What a promise that is! It gives me peace at heart when I remember that promise of His. I know everything will turn out okay, it's just a matter of when and how. But that's where the wonderful virtue of patience comes in (note the sarcasm). Although, I have seen the benefits of patience in my life and let me tell you, it's great! So right now I'm gonna let go and let God! He's got a wonderful plan for me and you! It's time to let it unfold :)
