Dead Brain Cells and DMV Tests

I have to face the gallows today. Well, it seems like it. I have to take a driver's test at the DMV. If you read this before 10:30 Pacific time PRAY! I am going to need lots of prayer to pass this.

I haven't taken a test in years. I freeze when I take tests. Let's not talk about all the brain cells I have lost in the aging process. Or,that I can't remember what I had for dinner last night much less what I have read in their manual. What DID I have for dinner last night?

Someone said, "Don't worry. You have three times to pass it before you have to give up your license." The brain is already thinking, "Fail this test and two others and you're going to be doomed to a life that includes only your house and two acres of land." No more trips down the hill to your writing group. No more lunches out with the girls. No more trips to Michael's and JoAnn's for jewelry supplies. As I sit here, I weep (well, not really). One good thing though. Since I'm married to the pastor, I'll always have a ride to church!

I have been repeating, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." If it is his will, I'll pass the test. He is so great he can make even dead brain cells rise again! I'm really thankful I have that kind of God in situations like this.

Trusting in a mighty God to do a miracle in my life this morning, Gloria

This reminds me of a story of a little boy that went to summer camp last year. He wanted to walk the highwire (they had harnesses and things), anyway he got up the pole, stepped on the wire, froze, and then climbed back down. He tried again. This time he kept repeating "I can do all things through Christ who strenthens me". He said it all the way across the wire...all the way to the end. Prayers work! I'll keep you in prayer this morning!
