What a week! Midterms have just started for me and they won’t be over til the end of this week. I’ve been praying daily that I will have a quick and sharp mind so that I might do well on the tests I’ve had so far. Thankfully, I don’t feel too bad about them! What I’ve been thinking about a lot this past week is how much Heavenly Father has helped keep me afloat, in more ways than one! For starters, I had been having a really hard time on my calculus review, and I couldn’t see what I wasn’t getting. So naturally, I prayed (begged) that Heavenly Father would help me find the answers I need. The next morning I decided to go to my professor’s office hours. I could only stay for 30 minutes and there’s usually about 10 other kids that come so I wasn’t expecting to get much help there. Amazingly, I was the only one there! Because of that I was able to get all of my questions answered in the 30 minutes I was able to stay! I honestly feel that it was an answer to my prayers and I feel very blessed for it. I’m so grateful to have a Heavenly Father that is willing to help me in my times of need.
I’ve been trying these past few weeks to recognize God’s answers to my prayers. I always try to remind myself that Heavenly Father answers every prayer, even if it’s not the answer I wanted. This thought reminds me of 2 Nephi 5:1-8, where Nephi prays to Heavenly Father about his brothers’ anger and is advised to take whoever will follow him and flee into the wilderness. I seriously doubt that was the answer Nephi wanted, nevertheless he obeyed and was ultimately blessed for it. As I receive answers in my life that aren’t exactly what I want, I would like to keep this scripture in mind.
Well that’s all I have for now!
Until next time,
