God’s love erases failure

It was the night before my final examination for Contracts Law, and I was sitting on my bedroom floor, feeling completely desperate. I knew I was not ready for the exam, and I felt that any last-minute studying I did would be pointless. 

When grades had come out the previous semester, I was shocked to find out that I had received one of the lowest grades in this class. The course is split over the fall and spring semesters, and each student’s grade for the class is based entirely on the final exam at the end of each semester. After receiving that low grade on the exam at the end of the fall semester, I had vowed to work especially hard in the spring. But there I was the night before the exam, having not taken any extra steps to prepare myself. As I sat there in my room, I felt completely panicked and ashamed. I was angry at myself, and felt I didn’t deserve to be in law school.
