Work Hard and Believe Big

Does God care about your grades in school? If you do, then He does. As a student, time is crucial; but as a young, spiritually developing believer, time for God, His Word, and His people adds a whole new dimension to scheduling.

Many incidents come to mind of how God blessed me in making good grades, but one stands out from my first year in college. We had a large ministry meeting over the weekend. I had a big test the following Monday. After much studying and memorizing for a math test, there were a few formulas that were challenging to remember. I did my best to prepare. I remember having a thought to write down on my test paper as soon as I got it in my hands all the challenging formulas while they were fresh in my mind. That way I wouldn’t have to think about them anymore through the test.

Everything I wrote down on the test paper was needed to answer the questions! God worked in me for complete success. We aced it! That set a precedent for me to work hard and believe big. God always came through.
