For I cannot weaken if You are with me

For certain reasons, I really needed to do well in the two exams that was scheduled for today. One was supposed to be held from 10 am to 11 am, worth 20%. The other - 3 pm to 4 pm, worth 25%. I started studying a few days ago. Out of the five chapters for the 25% test, I got through three of them properly. For the other exam - I stayed up until 3 am last night, studying. Of course, I wasted a lot of time before this, which I feel deep regret for. Anyway, lately, I have been feeling that God is my only hope, only hope of anything and everything. So I turned to Him. As impossible as it sounded, I asked Allah to make a way for me know learn all the content before the 25% test. What would've taken me two weeks, I was asking to do in two hours. This seemed absolutely impossible and the whole time I was thinking, Allah has infinite powers, therefore, anything is possible.

SubhanAllah, when I got to uni, I heard that the exam is postponed. My heart was beating so fast. This is another miracle. The power of Dua is amazing! It made my faith stronger. I felt assured that anything I ask for WILL be answered. If not directly, it will be answered in another way.

Did I talk about Caravanserai yet? It is a song that makes me feel calm, makes me cry, yet helps me to wipe my tears. Its by Talib Al-Habib, an amazing singer who makes use of his voice in one of the best ways possible. I found it interesting that his lyrics are written by his wife. He has a new CD out - Songs of Wayfarer. I was listening to Heartsong. It lifts up your spirit and makes you feel close to Him.

Hear now, my heart song, my heart calls to You,
That you guide me, my Lord, through my soul's long, dark night.
I send my heart song across the empty silences,
To You.
May You fill me with peace and with light,
Lost in an ocean of doubt and confusion,
Am I seeking your burning beacon light?
Strengthen my hand and my heart when I falter
For I cannot weaken if You are with me.

I have listened to a few more of Maher Zain's songs - I really like this one. It reflects exactly how I feel.

I find it amazing that I am flying through physics without having an idea of what's going on. I really do need to catch up, and Smru, if you are reading this, tell me that I need to catch up! Every subject at uni is speeding by and I need to use the upcoming seven uni-free days. Unfortunately (or fortunately?) Eid falls on one of those days. So much to do, so little time!

I am sleepy.

"The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep."
