Just Finished--Acts

Since February I have been studying a course from the university on the book of Acts. This has been a very spiritually rewarding study. Two weeks ago I submitted the project paper. This past week I poured myself over reviewing all the text for the final exam. I spent a lot of time this weekend in the Bible and the textbook. Today I met my proctor and took the final exam. This exam certainly seemed more demanding than the last one I took. I hope I passed. I will know in about two weeks. Then I will have only 7 more classes to go to reach the first step of my goals.

As of this moment, I will taking a break from university work to catch up on household chores, get ready for my youngest son's birthday party and lesson planning to start school in the latter part of August.

As I reviewed the material last week, I felt the Lord pour ideas in me to write about. I pray I will be able to put those pieces together over the next few weeks and post them on this blog. I have my notes before me now and my mind is start to race again. But for now I need a good night's sleep.

Blessings in Christ!

Shonda,
I hope you're able to get rested up from all your hard work and no doubt - long hours. Thanks for your comment on my blog. I commented back but did it as a regular comment instead of a new post. The blogging world is new to me. I'm not for sure if I should make all my replies to comments as new posts or simply comment back under that same post. I'm sure there's no one right way to do it.

I look forward to hearing the things you've learned in your study of Acts. I love it when God teaches me new things in His Word. I love the moments when you'll be reading something and something stands out to you that you'd never seen before. Or those moments when God ties different Scriptures together for you and shows you how they harmonize. Then there's those moments when God will just take a story or passage and show you an application to your life. His Word is exciting.

Take care and God bless!

Congratulations on completing the course! I will pray for the outcome of the test, although I'm sure you did just fine! God is awesome, when we put in the work He blesses beyond what we deserve. He's going to send you some blessings girl! I can't wait to read what He's putting in your heart. Thank you for the comment on my blog. You are an encouragement to me! I'll be praying for you and praising God for our new friendship. :) I hope you have a blessed day!
