I have been signed up for a class.
There is no record of it on paper or electronically.
No funds were transferred to pay for the instruction.
I do not know the course title.
I do not know exactly when the class times will be or in what room.
How is this possible?
Only through God.
You see, I feel that it is God who has “signed me up” for instruction.
Lately, I have been studying a lot about relationships with people, managing time the way God would want and being a good steward of the gifts He has given.
Today, I sat down at my computer and read something that had been posted on a social network.
It had appeared on my page.
Moments later, I logged onto a Bible site that features a “verse of the day.”
Here is today’s verse:
Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the LORD is kept safe. –Proverbs 29:25
Looking this verse up in The Message, I found this:

trusting in God protects you from that.
I mean it when I say that I have been studying a lot lately.
Reading, listening, watching videos.
For about a week, maybe, my concentration has been focused on deep matters, as I felt God had brought some topics to my attention.
On one side of the page, we have all that God has given us to use in this life.
On the other side of the page, we may have a good deal of things that tempt us away from the course that God has created for us to travel.
Instead of using our strength and vitality in the ways that God intended, we may spend ourselves on useless endeavors or needless worry about what others will think.
This will ultimately leave us depleated and empty handed.
I have come to understand this fact in my class.
The lesson today was delivered on my computer screen.
I wonder when the next session will be……
