Let me tell y'all our God is just so fantastic, it amazes me every single day. He hears my prayers and never fails to answer them! The fact that he is so steadfast and constant in my life makes me thankful everyday, but today I have been thankful from the moment I woke up... literally.
I think I am coming down with a cold and on top of everything that is going on with classes and extra curricular activities, I haven't really had time for as much sleep as I would like. When I started feeling bad I knew one of the things I needed was to sleep longer than seven hours. I usually try to log about eight hours but so far this semester it has been hard! Last night I was determined to get to bed early. I knew if I was going to try and feel better and get through the rest of the week I needed to get to bed. The issue is that when I tell myself something is going to happen at a certain time, it usually doesn't. I got consumed in homework and didn't get to bed until midnight. I was kind of stressing because like I said, I wanted to get at least eight hours of sleep. In my nightly prayers I asked God to clear some space for a nap today or at least help me feel better and/or rested. I was really hoping He would answer this prayer. And as always, He did.
At 7:45 when my alarm went off I hit snooze because that is my immediate response in the mornings. It then went off again ten minutes later. I did my normal social media check/phone check, but today it was different. Today I received an email that read:
"NO CLASS" as the subject title.
Now first off, I thought I was still dreaming, but y'all I wasn't!!!
I prayed for rest and God literally handed it to me. I texted all my friends in the class, read the e-mail one last time, and then slept for two more hours. It was possibly the best thing ever. I mean that doesn't just happen everyday, but it must have happened today because God knew I needed it.
I do feel a tad bad because the reason my class was cancelled is because my teacher and her family got food poisoning. So pray for them because that is actually awful. I also hate finding joy in someone else's pain, but y'all have got to understand how cool God is. I mean it is not cool that they got sick, but it is totally cool that He felt the need to give me some rest.
Let's all be thankful that God answers prayers. Sometimes it may not happen in the way we plan, but it ALWAYS works out. Pray to Him and trust Him. I promise you it is one of the best things you will ever do. It makes my life 10x better.
Thank you God for answering my prayers and giving me a little time today to rest. I am SO thankful for that and that You are in my life.
Stay thankful y'all and keep relying on God. He will never let you down!
