Spiders, Script Ohio and the Sovereignty of God

By Preston Hart, Talon Staff writer

The Ohio State University, which is pronounced, The Ohio State University, is one of the top universities in the country. The reason why they emphasize The is because there are other smaller colleges in Ohio with similar names, and people want this university to stand out.

The Ohio State is the university is the one that I would love to go to. It seems like a  great campus and a great marching band. They are recognized as one of the best marching bands. They have an abbreviation of TBDBITL, which represents their skill as a marching band. The fun thing about them is, at halftime during their football games, their marching band crosses with each other, making a cursive rendition of the word “Ohio” simply called Script Ohio.

I am planning to go to Ohio  State and major in entomology. The reason I am going to be in entomology is because of how much I love spiders. If you are in seventh grade, then you know that I have three tarantulas and I want to find the next spider venom that is a painkiller.

Genesis 50:20-21 says “You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.”

This verse reminds me that even though spiders and spiders venom may seem harmful to us, the further study of this curious stuff may lead to the saving of many lives. God can and does use what we think to be scary, gross, or even evil,  for the good of those who love Him (Romans 8:28).

So whether you plan to attend college or are just beginning high school,  know that God will be with you when you face something scary (like tarantula venom!)
