Today was the first day of standardized testing that we must do to fulfill a requirement by the homeschooling group we are apart of. This is not one of my favorite parts of the year, in fact I didn't like taking them as a child either. However, to my delight, today went rather smoothly. I had been nervous after last year when my son stressed out so much about the "time", that he froze and couldn't function. So, we were able to do testing this year without a timer, and it worked beautifully. God was near and heard my prayer!
Then this evening I received a message from a person who "happened" upon this blog. She received tragic news today, and the Lord met her where she was and comforted her in her grief. God was near and heard her prayers!
The Lord is truly awesome and hears all our prayers. What a blessing when we see His Hand on our ordinary lives!
"The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in truth."
