To many, it may sound unbelievable, but most of our southern brothers and sisters are returning to school this week! Praise God for those who are called to our profession. Pre-planning days are exciting and exhausting. It's so great to catch up with colleagues we haven't seen since school let out and to meet the newest staff members. Let us as Christian educators, step out and welcome all who are new to our schools and check in on them, particularly if they are a first-year teacher. Please find two or more colleagues to prayer with before Open House and the start of this brand new school year.
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you Lord for calling us to teaching. Please show us how to represent You well this school year. Let us be Jesus with skin on: may our eyes be Your eyes to see the needy, may our feet walk where You want us to be, and may our hands bless the children with creativity, passion and the gifts You have bestowed upon us. May all that we do be to Your glory and honor. Help us Lord to be merciful, to do justice and to love kindness in our school. Let us display the Fruit of the Spirit in everything we do that we may win the hearts of our colleagues and students contagiously for Your glory. What an exciting time of refreshing, rejuvenation and redesign. You make all things possible, Lord. We love you. We ask for all things in the Name of Jesus.
1st Peter 1:13 - Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
