Little Goodnesses

It is done. This quarter is over. And, Lord willing, I will never again have to sit in PC 1 and PC 2. Only three months stands between me and never having to see these professors ever again.

After the exam, I went for a quick mile and a half run. I finished in 13:48!!! My shins are still bothering me, so I’m trying to take it easy, but the very slow progress this fall has me frustrated. After two runs this week, I’m feeling like I am actually making progress, which is very encouraging. Even though it’s taking me a while to build up the mileage, I’m doing it at a faster pace – my next 5K will be a PR! Here’s hoping that this next quarter will be less stressful, leading to more progress. 🙂

On my run this afternoon, this Kari Jobe song came on. In a way, I feel like it’s a good summary of my quarter. I have been brought to my knees many times this quarter. But each time, I’ve come to experience Christ in a new and more beautiful way.

Also, this verse came to mind:

Psalm 27: 13: “I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.”

I have seen the goodness of the Lord this quarter. Even in the little things – like not getting called on when I was unprepared, or getting an encouraging text message, or AnnaGrace cooking me dinner.

So, look for the little goodnesses of the Lord. They are there, if you’re really looking.
