Dear anyone going back to school,
Why is it that summer always
goes by so quickly? This past summer was one of the best summers of my life,
but I don’t even know where it went. Nonetheless, school is starting
again, and it’s time to get back on a schedule.
But you know what? We can do this. School is
honestly such a blessing, even if you don’t see it that way. So many
people across the world long to be able to read, write, and do basic
math, but we are able to do so much more than that. Let’s praise God
for the ability to learn!
I remember last year there were times I
was so overwhelmed by assignments due, essays to be written, and exams
to take that I just wanted to give up. Ever been there? I bet you
have. But something I’m learning is that things usually aren’t as bad
as they seem. Take a deep breath and a step back, and look at the big
picture. You’ll eventually get everything done. There’s more to this
life than stress, school, and due dates!
“From the end of the earth I will cry to You,
When my heart is overwhelmed;
Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.”
we’re faithful in the little things, it trains us to be faithful in the
big things. So let’s practice our faithfulness in school so that when
we go out into the world, we can change it for Jesus. Who’s with me?
Let’s do our best and glorify God!
“And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men,”
Whether you’re homeschooled, go to public school, or go to a private school, let’s bring glory to God’s name. We can do this!
we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let
us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and
let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking
unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that
was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat
down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
