I am doing this, because I think miracles or experiences with God should be shared and is a form of praise (also because I am really thankful for what happened).
(I’m from Germany, so please excuse my English).
I had an exam two years ago and failed it because I thought it would be easy, I really didn’t prepare enough for it.
Then two weeks later I had the chance to retake it and studied a lot, prayed had faith and failed again. Then I had a conversation with my professor and he would decide whether I would get another chance to take it. I really was so annoyed of this subject that I started doubting myself whether this is even the right thing to study. My professor made a decision and allowed me to retake it the following year. It would’ve been my last chance or I would have to study something different and leave the University.
This time I forced myself to do the best I had in me, so that God could do the rest.
I studied a lot, I sacrificed hanging out too late with my friends on weekends and even deleted apps that distracted me too much. I studied and studied.
There was 1 week left and I tried to revise everything and realised that it is impossible to remember everything (I must also add this exam is an exam where 80% of students fail because it is really difficult it is counted as one of the most difficult exams in the whole studies). Anyways I notice how I revised and only remembered the things I had learned last. That got me more nervous so I started to create a to do list of the things. I would still have to revise (even though I already went through them). So I had a very long to do list and only had four more days left. I revised and revised. Then I panicked I almost broke out in tears cause I HAD TO PASS THIS I took a break and felt bad and went to sleep.
The next morning God spoke to me in a devotional and one part said sometimes we have to throw away to do lists because they make you feel worse and that we should have faith and be spirit-led (so funny) he really commented on that :D. That gave me so much hope!!! I threw it away and just revised what I thought I should.
So one day before I got nervous again thought to myself I could also just skip and pretend that I’m sick so I would have more time to revise and take it on another day. Or maybe just make a little note with the things I needed in the exam.
then God spoke on that same day through the Sunday message and told me to BE STRONG AND BE CONFIDENT and stop postponing out of fear! So I knew I had to take it the next day, I went there, sat down, looked at the sheet, read through the questions and smiled.
I was so excited to fill out everything I was so happy taking the exam. I had so much confidence and believed I would pass this. The questions were the things I revised for last so it was easy to remember. I could answer every question. Usually I’m very critical but it was evident to me that God was with me! I even called everyone after that and told them I had a good feeling, I normally wait to the results until I say that. A month later I got my results and passed I was so happy !!!!
HAVE FAITH, BE STRONG, KEEP PUSHING EVEN WHEN EVERYTHING SEEMS HARD AND IMPOSSIBLE, GOD WILL COME THROUGH WHERE HE NEEDS TO !
HE CARES ABOUT WHAT YOU CARE!!
WE ARE ALLOWED TO DREAM AND HOPE even in hopeless situations! AS HIS CHILDREN WE SHOULD TRUST THAT OUR FARTHER WILL PROVIDE AND WILL NOT LET US PERISH
A cool verse that helped me through this season: Matthew 7:9
Even if I was some kind of genius with a really good memory, even if I did everything in my power and did my best! We are not perfect we can’t be sure that the success is going to be there, only God’s Grace will save the situation and he loves to communicate and be in the middle of our struggle. He loves it when we put our faith into him (he is the best at his job) nothing is too big for him !
TRUST THE GENIUS, THE CREATOR OF THE EARTH!!
