Today I almost forgot whose I am.  A new course was added to my course load and I panicked.  The course is called Managerial Economics and I have never taught it before.  I wasn’t even sure what it meant.  So I went to a friend who reminded me that God will not allow us to get in over our head.  That I can do this.  Still as I went home I was feeling very let down.  Then I had a knock on my door and a neighbor invited me for dinner.  It was great to leave the work for a short while.  We talked and got to know each other better then I asked her how her day had gone and she said she had delivered a baby.  I asked if she had ever done that before and found out it was only here that she had delivered.  Can you imagine.  Here I was worrying about a,course which I can read and stay ahead of the students and she is delivering babies. She told me the outcome is not always good.  The clinic where she delivered the baby has limited supplies.  In fact last week a mother came who required a cesarean and they had to send her to Kampala because the clinic had no sutures.  but there is also no ambulance service. She had to go by public transportation and by the time she got to the hospital it was to late for both her and the baby.   Compared to that how can I not trust God for the provision.  I must now trust God for my provision of knowledge.  Help me to allow God to stretch me even when it seems to hard.  Help me to remember whose I am.
