I believe, help thou mine unbelief.

My lab this morning was going really badly. It took us forever to calculate the amount of FEDS we needed for our solution and then we made it up with the wrong solvent, then we spilled the FEDS when we started over and had to start over again...3 volumetric flasks later we had a correct solution to put in the sonicator, except I was stupid and forgot to try to dissolve the FEDS first (just smile and nod, sorry this is all gibberish :)) and supposedly FEDS is not all that soluble so I was afraid we were going to have to start over again. I said this super desperate quick prayer in my head that the solution would dissolve and we'd be able to get going on our lab (two hours of class had already gone by). The next time I checked the solution, it was all dissolved. Whew! Thank you Heavenly Father! Three hours later I'm working on my lab report in excel, and it freezes. I hadn't saved it recently and it's due tonight so I was freaking out that I'd have to redo a bunch of stuff for that too. But you know what, it worked out just fine because it unfroze itself and I was able to go back to working on it. I don't know why I always freak out about things like that. If I'd just relax and try to work through the problem things work out. They always do. I know this is kind of a stupid little example, but the principle involved is true. God doesn't abandon you ever, so if you just keep trying, it'll be okay.

Why is it so hard to remember that sometimes?

PS This is my 50th post. Happy 50th post on Katie's blog day everyone! :)

Only 50 posts? Geeze...I have like 70 or 80. Ha ha. But's good to hear examples from other people, because I'm always praying all the time that things will work out. Thanks for the example, it's reassuring. I love you Katie, and you too Alyssa!!
