I just wanted to share a bit of good news I learned today. Some of you know that I have been taking classes from University of Phoenix Online so I can renew my certificate. I had until October 12 of this year to complete my last 6 hours of class (which I had planned to do this summer). I corresponded with someone from the Department of Education and found out that I can let my certificate lapse until October of 2005 and renew without having to meet the current certification requirements. So, God may allow me to keep my certification after all.
Also, I was reading in the Word the other day and these verses touched my heart. Maybe they'll encourage you all today.
Psalm 111 (NLT)
1 Praise the LORD! I will thank the LORD with all my heart as I meet with his godly people. 2 How amazing are the deeds of the LORD! All who delight in him should ponder them. 3 Everything he does reveals his glory and majesty. His righteousness never fails. 4 Who can forget the wonders he performs? How gracious and merciful is our LORD! 5 He gives food to those who trust him; he always remembers his covenant.
6 He has shown his great power to his people by giving them the lands of other nations. 7 All he does is just and good, and all his commandments are trustworthy. 8 They are forever true, to be obeyed faithfully and with integrity. 9 He has paid a full ransom for his people. He has guaranteed his covenant with them forever. What a holy, awe-inspiring name he has! 10 Reverence for the LORD is the foundation of true wisdom. The rewards of wisdom come to all who obey him. Praise his name forever!
Wow! EVERYTHING He does reveals His glory and majesty...His righteousness NEVER fails...He ALWAYS remembers His covenant...ALL He does is just and good, and ALL His commandments are trustworthy...
