Melina and I had a good conversation about how this semester is going to be so hard for both of us that neither of us can do it alone. We're definitely both gonna be needing God's help. And He will help us. =) He made it hard enough for both of us that we won't be able to say it was our own efforts, "my own hand hath saved me" (Judges 7:2), when we succeed. Instead of shrinking my army like He did to Gideon, He just increased the difficulty level of my classes and the credit load, and the time available in my schedule. Same effect though!
"...This will I do that ye may stand as witnesses for me hereafter, and that ye may know of a surety that I, the Lord God, do visit my people in their afflictions." Mosiah 24:14
I know a busy schedule isn't the biggest of afflictions, but the point remains. It's going to be a tough semester, but I really think it's going to be awesome as well. =) I spent most of today organizing my calendar and getting ready, and I'm feeling good.
Except for the fact that I forgot to go grocery shopping, and one of the few things available to me for dinner tonight were chocolate chip cookies. Oops!
