When I signed up for classes a few weeks ago, I was scheduled to take LD Procedures (a class that teaches you how to teach kids with LD) and My Clinical II for LD (which is where I go into a classroom and teach kids with LD) in the spring...for obvious reasons this is a problem.
After pondering this for a couple weeks, last night, I talked to the professor of the class. The professor, not in so many words, told me what I had suspected (that taking the two at the same time was a bad idea). But, then she said something I did NOT expect. The professor informs me that in Jan term she is offering the ED clinical (which was not originally offered then) that I am sopposed to take next fall. So I am able to hold back my LD Clinical till next fall AND get the ED clincal out of the way. (YES!)
The only down side to this is I will be taking 2 classes in Jan term. For those of you unfamiliar with a Jan term aka Winter term, it is a time students are able to use the month of January to take a class and it helps us to stay ahead. Many students choose to take fun classes, get an add-on, or add a minor (Jan term is usually a good break from the reg semester). Anywho, taking 2 classes during Jan term is very difficult, becuase of the short time span. So, naturally I was a little hesitant of signing up for both classes until this morning, just like the night before, God showed out again.
A couple of weeks ago I was reading a Psalm that our pastor had given us at the church that I attend here in Spartanburg. I "stumbled" upon a verse that really made me think. Psalm 92:10 "But you have made me as strong as a wild ox." (I don't know what images pop into your head with you here "wild ox" but that that sounds pretty powerful to me) Then this morning God, so clearly, brought it back into my brain right in the middle of my fretting. Needless to say I signed up for the classes, and we will see how that goes... (YES!)
So do you think God was done???
He could have stopped there but he decided to really put the proverbial cherry on the top!
Since I had moved my clinical to the fall I had an empty space to fill in my spring schedule. This led to be do a little searching in the course catalog for a class to fill. I was coming up empty. I have to have a certain amount of hours to keep my scholarship, so I had to find something. After searching for a while I thought about the spanish course that I needed. I have taken 2 spanish and need one more to Graduate. Long story short, I was not able to take the last spanish I needed this past semester when I was supposed to. That was going to put me till next fall taking my last spanish. I have been really worried about having to wait so long to take the class. So back to looking up classes I decided to look up the 2nd spanish class that I had taken and see if I could audit it. I typed it in looked for the course, and what do I see? The third spanish that I need...right there is front of me!
But unfortunately it was full and I could not get in...The End
So the class was full BUT I e-mailed the professor and he said that he would be glad to make room for me in the class! (YES!)
Not once, not twice, but three time my God has blessed me today! His grace is unmatchable.
"It is good to give thanks to the Lord,
to sing praises to the Most High.
It is good to proclaim your unfailing love in the morning,
your faithfulness in the evening,
accompanied by the ten-stringed harp
and the melody of the lyre.
You thrill me, Lord, with all you have done for me!
I sing for joy because of what you have done.
O Lord, what great works you do!
And how deep are your thoughts.
Only a simpleton would not know,
and only a fool would not understand this:
Though the wicked sprout like weeds
and evildoers flourish,
they will be destroyed forever.
But you, O Lord, will be exalted forever.
Your enemies, Lord, will surely perish;
all evildoers will be scattered.
But you have made me as strong as a wild ox.
You have anointed me with the finest oil.
My eyes have seen the downfall of my enemies;
my ears have heard the defeat of my wicked opponents.
But the godly will flourish like palm trees
and grow strong like the cedars of Lebanon.
For they are transplanted to the Lord’s own house.
They flourish in the courts of our God.
Even in old age they will still produce fruit;
They will remain vital and green.
They will declare, “The Lord is just!
He is my rock!
There is no evil in him!”
Psalm 92, NLT
