When we venture into any undertaking we find it both exciting and scary, especially if it’s something we’ve never tried before.
For twenty-four years I've entered the new school with those mixed emotions. My thoughts always bounced from… Yes, a new start. Who will bring the unknown challenges? Will I wreck these kids? Where will I find the energy? How in the world do I deal with that?! We’re going to have so much fun learning together! How can I build into the lives of these kids?
I can imagine that many of you are experiencing some of the same emotions.
PRAISE GOD we don’t have to make it through one day on our own. We have The One who created our minds, and the hearts and minds of our children, to help us every step of the way. We have the Holy Spirit to speak into our hearts and guide our journey. We have the assurance that God is on our side cheering us along.
Yes, a new year can be scary but God does not want us to do this on our own. He wants to spark the conversations, and lead the teachable moments. He will give us the words to say and the direction to go.
Begin each day with prayer and step out in confidence that He’s got it all under control.
