Reminded me of how every semester come exam time, a good friend of mine and I would joke about dropping uni and getting married. This time round, she really is getting married (after she graduates of course ;p).
Exam blues are... ugh.
It is therefore refreshing waking up to this particular tune in my head. Since I only knew the first line, it played over and over again in my head, as if some sort of a wake-up anthem:
"Day by day and with each passing moment..."
after endless repetition of that line, I knew I had to google the rest of the song.
"Day by day and with each passing moment,
Strength I find to meet my trials here."
I especially found encouragement in the 2nd stanza:
"Ev'ryday the Lord Himself is near me
With a special mercy for each hour;
All my cares He fain would bear and cheer me,
He whose name is Counselor and Pow'r.
The protection of His child and treasure,
Is a charge that on Himself He laid;
'As your days, your strength shall be in measure,'
This the pledge to me He made."
If we died with him, we will also live with him;
if we endure, we will also reign with him.
If we disown him, he will also disown us;
if we are faithless, he will remain faithful, for he cannot disown himself.
-2 Timothy 2:11-13
