You say so correctly, for so I am.If I then, the Lord and the Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one anot...

    Brothers, even if a man is caught in some fault, you who are spiritual must restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, looking to yourself so that you also aren't tempted. Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. Galatians 6:1'2 WEBPicture us all climbing a mountain together,...

Making up for Lost Time

  • For you will bless the righteous. Yahweh, you will surround him with favor as with a shield. Psalm 5:12 WEB

    Once while at church on a Sunday night, the pastor's wife came over to me and said that she felt the Lord wanted me to get my GED (high school equivalency degree). I had left high school early to join the work force like the rest of my brothers. I told her that I would look into it, and Monday morning I went to the Adult Education Center. I prayed all the way there, then I went in and explained that I had been out of school for a long time. They said they would test me, teach me the subjects that I lacked, prepare me for the test, and I should have it within six months to one year.

    Tuesday I went back and took the pre-test, again I prayed all the way there. The test seemed easier than I was expecting and I was braced for much worse. Each day I prayed for His grace and mercy to do what I had to do.

    Wednesday I went back for the test results to see what I needed to work on. The staff greeted me with a strange look and asked, 'Have you already studied for this?' I told them no, I had decided to do it two days ago. They were surprised and told me that I scored in the high 90s and did not need to improve on any of the subjects in order to take the test.

    The woman helping me said it is a shame that you did not come last month as they only hold tests twice a year, and the next one is this Saturday, but you have to sign up for it a month in advance. Then she decided to call them up and discuss it with them. They asked for my test scores, and she faxed my tests over to them. It turns out that they had a cancellation, and they approved me to take the test on Saturday.

    Saturday I showed up at the test location and took the eight hour test. How far is the earth from the moon? Hadn't a clue' got it right! I was one of the first to finish the test, and when I returned to church on Sunday, I had completed my G.E.D. from start to finish in one week. After that the Lord had me start Bible college. He had plans bigger than mine, and though I had wrecked them, He gave me divine favor to correct it.

    Do you ever feel like you will never make up for those years that you lost? That you wrecked His plan for you? God's divine favor can make up for lost time and enable you to rocket past the normal progression. When His word comes to us, it brings the power to complete the task given.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I pray that you help me correct the mistakes in my life. Please help me move forward and make up for the lost time, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen!

Thank you Pastor Todd for sharing your story. Recently I did a course in teaching children about the word of God. It was a five week program- very intense - which included practical exams as the only form of examination. Although I was very nervous during the exams, like you, I prayed before and at the end got an unexpected A+. God is awesome. He put me in the program and saw me through and rewarded me for my hard work and dedication. What a mighty God we serve.
