Hearing the news of Grace University’s closing this morning brought similar emotions that came with the news of Dana’s closing seven years ago. A piece of my heart shattered as I tried to wrap my mind around it again. As a student, I had been devastated. For a few moments, I felt the sadness, confusion, and fear of the unknown that haunted me for a time as a student. As I looked at my students from my desk, I realized that without my school closing, I would not be sitting here as their teacher. I was immediately filled with hope and reminded that God’s plans sometimes are not our own.
