Yesterday I started a series of how prayer and fasting have changed my life (go here)...totally revolutionized my christian life. When I left off, Matthew had a 62 in Algebra 3 at the end of the third quarter. I was shocked because the teacher had not informed me, as school board policy dictates. When I
questioned the 62, they changed it to a 70, supposedly due to participation.
I thought fourth quarter would be a breeze. Matthew has always struggled with math as I have;
our minds are not wired for numbers. He got angry and slept in class. I plied him with energy
drinks, but he still slept---out of disrespect.
Through all this, I prayed and got messages from God.
On January 9, He sent me this message from Dr. Tony Evans: "God is faithful; He's got it.
A verse that came to mind several times over the last few months was Hebrews 13:18: "God is the same
yesterday, today, and forever." God reminded me that He had the English grade changed, the
third quarter Algebra 3 grade changed, and He would take care of the final grade.
I was pondering what to do about Algebra 3 when I was putting on my makeup one morning.
All of a sudden in my head I heard, "Do you trust me?" It was almost a whisper. I knew it
was Jesus. It threw me for a loop. At this time I downloaded a free book on my kindle: Women
Who Trust God. Trust was the key word. In the next installment I will tell you how I purposed to
trust God....really trust Him.
