From Exhausted to Encouraged

Last week was one of the busiest weeks that I have had in a long time. School was occupying all of my "free" time, and my professors have not let up yet. I have two exams (one of which is HUGE), a "self quiz," and a group project/presentation, along with several other random assignments, to do this week. I am terrified. Terrified that I will not study the right things, that I will not have time to finish studying, that I will not do well on my tests, that I will not be able to adequately prepare for my presentation, etc. It is consuming my life. I am a worrier. It's what I do best. So tonight, I am taking the time to remind myself that God is SO much bigger than any task that is placed before me. I am doing my best to lay all of my worries upon Him so that I may live a life that is free of stress and focuses solely upon Him. He is my provider.
