Yay for exams

As stressful as exams can be, they can serve as a great relief too. Generally, when exams come, homework is less. Surprisingly, I haven't been overwhelmed with homework quite yet. I do have a lot of it, so I need to keep on top of it, but God has been good so far in giving me the energy needed to finish everything. Another great thing about my exam today was that I finished in about 30 minutes which meant that I got to go to baseball practice. :) We pretty much just worked on hitting today. I can't wait for games to start! The first game is only 8 days away now! I was reading in Jeremiah 32 today. There were a couple verses that caught my attention.
27 Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh; is anything too difficult for Me?

42 For thus says the LORD, Just as I brought all this great disaster on this people, so I am going to bring on them all the good that I am promising them.

Verse 27 caught my attention because I have such a lack of faith. I guess you could say that I have the head knowledge. I know He is everywhere, and that He can do anything, but often times, I don't live in this reality. Verse 42 caught my attention because I was just talking with a friend about one of their close family friends that passed away. I realize that this promise was for the Israelites, but I know that God is the same yesterday, today, and forever. I have seen Him use some ugly circumstances for His glory, and for the best of those that experienced it. I don't think this situation is any exception to that. God is always good!
