At the end of this semester...

At the near end of the most challenging semester I am likely to ever see, I continue to be amazed at the graciousness and trueness of God. There has been success in this semester only because He is great; there has been triumph over the dark corners of my heart because He has overcome the power of death; there has been comfort because He heals; there has been pain because He is molding me like clay; there has been challenge, because there is so much more in me yet to do.

"I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead." Philippians 3:10-11
