This post is all about giving God glory. I just finished a week of examens (the French word for exams). It was a stressful and difficult week. And then we had to wait until Monday to get the news of whether we passed or not. I spent a lot of my week on my knees before the throne of God, asking for aid! Yesterday, I received the news that I passed, and can go on to the next level. You might think I am exaggerating when I say, this was a miracle! But I'm not. God took this old brain, set in the English language, and helped me to understand enough French to pass their difficult examens. Granted, I didn't pass by much. But I think that is God's way of letting me know He was the one who accomplished this, and not to get too full of myself. I need to keep depending on Him everyday through the next 9 weeks to understand the material presented. This morning I was reading in II Corinthians 4 and was reminded again in verse 7 that all of this is for God's glory. If He can help a 59 year old woman retrain her brain to think and speak in French, then it's all His doing. Verse 7 says "But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us". Amen! I'm just a baked clay pot, and God has chosen me to serve Him in Africa. I don't know why, but I know it's to bring Him glory! Well, on to my first day of A2 and a new challenge!

  1. Your post reminds me of Romans 8:28
    And we know that in all thing God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.

    Hallelujah on your praise report Sandie :)
