Hi everyone,
Seeing as how most of us are in the thick of exams, and the rest of us will soon be too, I thought I'd share something which God revealed to me.

One fine night, the 28th of August, actually, I was slacking..and trying to regain my focus. I prayed and asked God, "What is my purpose in studying?" And suddenly I recalled David, the shepherd boy turned king. Shepherding must have been pretty mundane, but David stuck by it faithfully and ultimately God chose him to be king over His nation. So I decided to jot down this nifty insight in my prayer-journal thingy. I took up the pen, and began to write, words pre-formed in my mind, but what I wrote was completely different from what I planned-I let go and let a warm, wise, comforting presence form the letters. This is a blessing I have felt drawn to share with all of you, and truly, nobody says it better than God:

Many would acquire my knowledge, but I know their hearts. Glorify and honour me, like David as shepherd boy, and, like David, I will do a great work through you. Trust me. And live by my will.

May God bless you in the week ahead!
