I hate to even write the words. But, as you already know, it’s coming to the end of summer. You’re probably gearing up and getting ready for the new school year to start.
With the start of the new school year, it can often bring some mixed feelings. You might feel some excitement, to get back to the routine of schoolwork, studying, and seeing friends. But it can also bring with it feelings of dread.
Schoolwork might seem overwhelming for you if you’re not the best student academically. You might wonder if you’ll get along with new teachers. Possibly, you could dread dealing with a bully every day.
All these feelings can build up and make you really dread the upcoming year. Here’s some truth to encourage you.
So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the LORD your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you.” – Deut 31:6 (NLT)
God’s word is truth. And God tells us that He will personally go ahead of us. Have you ever thought about that? Each day, He’s going ahead of you, in the halls of your school, making a way for you.
When the bully at school says things that are horrible, know that God hasn’t abandoned you. He’s right there with you, as you go through the difficult stuff.
So choose to not dread the upcoming year. Instead, know that God is going before you, He hasn’t left you alone and He’s making a way for you!
