So... Thursday sucked. I don't want to go into any detail about it. But, it sucked. I came home on Thursday night feeling super discouraged. As I thought about everything; all that was said, all that I knew had to be done, I spoke to God. I ended with this, "You know what God? I could really use some of that random encouragement that you sometimes throw my way. I don't know where it could come from, but I could use it."
So, guess what happened today! I went into the office just before church service tonight and found a small envelope in my mailbox. In the envelope was a note from one of my students. I didn't immediately recognize her name (but I remembered her a little later). She remembered something that I said in my message on Sunday and used it to encourage me! Editor's Note: Not only was I encouraged, but I was also extremely humbled. I definitely do not deserve to be blessed with this job.
I got my not-so-random encouragement! I'm a little shocked (although I guess I shouldn't be) that God answered my prayer in less than a day. But I am so thankful! I wanted to share this with you in hopes that you could be encouraged too.
