Last night I learned of one of our students, residing outside Alabama, who arrived home a few days ago to find her mother, father and brother seriously ill. She is taking care of the entire household while keeping up with her courses. So far, she has remained healthy. One of the student’s friends said this about her:
Her faithfulness to God is getting her through this hard time. She told me yesterday that her prayer for this spring semester was for God to reveal himself more to her. Looks like He has been doing that every day!
The world is better because God is bigger than our present circumstances. Look up, be smart, practice discipline, remain compassionate. Be Samford.
