Faith and Sacrifice

Today I’m bubbling over with emotions. I recently went through surgery and have been busy trying to recover from it and have had many complications plague this process. I got a call from my adviser about my classes and she told me that one of professors is concerned about my schoolwork and the ability to continue with the pace of the class.

This is heartbreaking for me because I had to leave college the first time because my mom had breast cancer. I have prayed for years to have the opportunity and spirit again to go back to college and finish what I started. With this call, it brings back lots of memories of leaving school and leaving things unfinished with my degree. I am blessed to have the adviser that I do who called me and is trying to work with me on the best possible solution for this one class.

It is at times when there is a struggle in our lives that it is so easy to lose track of the big picture and have faith in what God is providing in one’s life. I have taken time this afternoon to pray and ask for God to lead me in the direction that I need to go. I pray this willingly because only my Heavenly Father can see the stress, pain, and anguish that my heart is feeling right now and only He can heal that and help me approach things in a positive and productive way.

I am reaching out to each of you today to remember that there are life-changing sacrifices that we make each and every day no matter how small or large. The important thing is to remember who needs to be in control of these decisions- our Heavenly Father. It is through His almighty grip in our lives that we are able to cope, see the bright side of things and find the determination and strength to keep going.

Blessings on your week-

Sherry
