I know there will be a time when I look back at now, and read what I've written in all its rawness, and wonder at the fragile, innocent worry. I know there will be times when I look back at now, wishing the only thing to panic about was another semester.

But right now, it is the only thing . . . and it's really tough sometimes.

Sure, there are more important things in life (and other things that I think I ought to "be more worried about"), but regardless, there is no discounting the importance of school, or the reality of stress, or the demands of time and energy.

I have to be honest: there's not really any reason I made it through this week other than "His strength is made perfect in weakness" (2 Cor. 12:9).

John Piper writes (on Twitter):
"Be strong in the Lord" means: Act with the confidence that God will keep his promise, "I will strengthen you."
And already the mental panic is subsiding, and the heart weariness is healing.

His strength.
