God is Good, Even When I’m Not.

Another semester at EKU is in the books, as of today. This has definitely been my hardest semester yet. Fellow college kids, I don’t advise taking 7 classes in one semester; you’ll find yourself burnt out on studying most of the time. 

So if you’re wondering why I haven’t posted anything in awhile, that’s why. Between rushing to classes, extracurriculars, and studying for finals, I’ve hardly had time to catch my breath. This perfect storm of unavoidable busy-ness made it easy to let my spiritual life slip through the cracks. Morning prayer and reading became something I barely squeezed in, and it was a good day if I prayed at any other point during the day. 

But as the semester drew to a close, I was struck once again by how good God has been to me. Most of my college is paid for. I have had countless opportunities to travel and expand my academic horizons. I’ve met incredible people in college so far. He placed friends in classes where I really needed them. He helped me survive classes in which I struggled. I swear he even made my calculator work during my Stats final. So many times this semester, I could feel God keeping me going.

God’s goodness is a humbling realization in light of my lack of faithfulness. I can only strive to be better, and ever more like Christ. But it’s comforting to know that God is good, even when I am not. Because far too often, I am not.
