Psalm 66:1 Make a joyful noise to God, all the earth; 2 sing the glory of his name; give to him glorious praise… 5 Come and see what God has done: he is awesome in his deeds among mortals.
As I mentioned in my last blog post, our daughter Victoria graduated Saturday from Southern Methodist University (S.M.U.) with her B.S. in biology. The last semester was particularly difficult for her. And because faculty remained off campus it was hard to communicate with them or get help/support from them (which made me angry since we were paying full tuition for sub-par instruction but that’s a story for another time). And so, of course, we prayed. A lot.
Fortunately, the Lord responded by sending to Victoria a PhD student who helped her at a crucial time before exams. Victoria readily admits she may not have successfully completed her courses had she not gotten support from someone who was not even an instructor or professor for the course. I was delighted we got to meet her at graduation. I feel bad that I don’t remember her name right now, but surely the Lord knows her name.
“Come and see what God has done…”
Lord in our time of need we cry out to you. I thank you for responding to our prayers by sending this wonderful young woman to accompany Victoria across the finish line. Lord give to this young woman an outpouring of your favor and blessing. And give to Victoria a heart to pay it forward. I pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
