Welcome to my little corner of the world. I am so honored by your visit today. My name is Kristi and I am married to my college sweetheart(I refer to him here as "Mr. Incredible"), momma to my 2 beautiful girls who are growing much too quickly, a high school computer teacher, photographer, and a gardener (at times~right now I'm growing weeds). I love to laugh, drink strong Starbucks coffee, take pictures, and be anywhere my family is. Jesus is my Savior and I try so hard to be the wife and momma that He has called me to be. I often fail but He lovingly picks me up, dusts me off, and encourages me that with Him all things are possible. Feel free to join me on this journey of faith, stop in and say hello, look around, and leave a comment~I love comments. Why "Kiki's Corner?" My nephews call me Aunt Kiki and I love that too.

I Know You by Name!

The sunrise this morning was absolutely glorious! I just had to snap a picture.
The clouds are so heavy with blessed rain and yet the sun is peeking through the clouds.
I love that and I love the scripture the Lord showed me this morning.

Exodus 33:17 says, "You have found grace in My sight, and I know you by name."
That takes my breath away. In His great mercy, we have found grace in His sight and He knows us by name. What a blessed thought! Glory!

I have a student named "V" who is hoping to graduate from high school this Friday night. He has taken distance learning classes at the local college this spring and failed. The professor offered a little grace and had "V" sign up to take his Maymester in hopes that "V" would pass and be able to graduate with his friends.

"V" is very special to me. His mother kicked him out of the house early this spring and he was homeless for a few weeks until a wonderful christian family took him in (I didn't even know at the time, I just knew he was acting differently in class).

He shared his story and I bawled. He cried too. (I could cry again just thinking about our conversation). He was devastated when he didn't pass the DL class.

The Lord began to move in my heart that I have some study skills that "V" might be able to use so I eagerly shared them with him. He called me at home a few days later to tell me that he had passed his first exam with a score of 85. We rejoiced together! It was one of those amazing moments where God lets you be a part of what He is doing. I was filled with delight!

"V" did pretty well on the next test but not so well on the 3rd test. I prayed for him over the weekend as he studies for the semester exam. He called me last night to tell me that he passed the test, but according to his aunt he would not pass the class. He sobbed on the phone.

I encouraged him that by my calculations, he should pass the course, and placed a call to a mentor of mine that just might be able to do something about the situation.

Today, we play the waiting game. Please, join me in praying that the professor extends grace to "V." He should pass the course and be allowed to graduate. I encouraged my student to hang on to the Lord because nothing is impossible for Him. I have seen God do the impossible in my life over and over again.

I am praying that this young man sees God work in a mighty way and that this would be his opportunity to see God reveal Himself in a way that "V" has never seen before. Will you please join me in this prayer?

*****UPDATE: THE PROFESSOR DID HAVE MERCY AND "V" WILL GRADUATE FRIDAY ("v" Just doesn't know it yet. I can't wait to see the look on his face)! PRAISE THE LORD!!!!! THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS!

Remember, God knows you by name too and His grace is sufficient!

Praying for V to pass and rejoicing that God has extended so much grace thus far. He knows V by name and can extend it further. Happy WFW to you.

Thanks for sharing! I look forward to reading about V's reaction when he finds out. I pray he will see God through this situation. How wonderful for God to use you to minister to him.
