How God Blessed My High School Exams
The Lord answered my prayers concerning my exams. Glory be to God!
I was 17 years old when I was in my last year at high school. I was very excited to finish school and I looked forward to studying something that would help me in my future job. I remember how I had to sit the trial exams, which are usually held a few months before the final exams in October. They contributed largely to my final marks and I needed a very high mark to get into university the following year.
However, I did not have as much time to study for these trial exams as I had expected to because I was working a lot on my ‘textiles (sewing) major’ work, which was due just before the exams. I was getting worried because I spent the majority of my time on completing the textiles project rather than studying for all the other subjects.
I started to worry and panic. I did not know how I was going to achieve everything. It all seemed too much for me to handle!
1 PETER 5:7 “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.” I knew that if God said to cast all my cares/worries/concerns on Him, that He meant it. I knew that He would care for me. So I put everything into the Lord’s hands and prayed that He would help me get the marks I needed. I also prayed that my ranking within the classes would not get lower, but improve.
Things fell into place: I managed to hand my ‘textiles major’ work on time and the trial exams went well. Shortly after, I got my results back and praise the Lord! I came 1st in my Maths exam, got 93% in German, came 4th in Physics and so on. I was absolutely amazed! All the glory goes to God! Indeed, without Him I could do nothing.
To cut a long story short, I then prayed that my final exams would go really well… and they did. I prayed that I would get into university… and I did. He has truly blessed me and He will bless you too if you put Him absolutely first in your life.
