Like others around the country, we fell upon tough financial times and lost our home this year. To secure a better future for our five children, we were inspired that I should return to college. Balancing work, family, and school has been a juggling act. After a trying day at work, followed by a overwhelming class, I sat in my car and sobbed. What was I doing? I'm a 40 year old freshman; I should be home tucking my children into bed. As I drove across campus, a song came on Air1, it was a behind-the-words segment of NeedToBreath's song "I'm Not Able On My Own". It was as if I was hearing this song for the first time. Suddenly, I realized what was missing; I was trying to do it all on my own and hadn't asked God for his help with school. I prayed for God to guide us as we tried to provide for our family. I asked for reassurance that we were doing the right thing. When I got home, my sweet husband told me our daughter had left me a treat on my night stand. When I opened the little Dove chocolate, inside the wrapper was a message that read "You are exactly where you need to be". I told him about my evening, then we prayed together and thanked the Lord for his tender mercies. With HIS guidance, we know all things are possible; thank you for the reminder!
