Hey everyone! Happy Thursday! Hope you’re all having a good week. Hang in there, it’s almost Friday! I just wanted to encourage all of you that even when it’s not Friday that we should be always be joyful that the lord is with us. My challenge for everyone today is to be happy. Simple, right? My extra challenge is not only for you to be happy but also to pass on your happiness to others. Next time you see someone sitting alone at lunch maybe try to sit and talk with them, make a new friend, or just make some of your friends laugh. Whatever it is, I do hope that you will make their day and yours much brighter.

Hello yall

Hope you guys are having a great Friday!

I hope that this video will remind us how Jesus helped us mortals by dying on the cross. And I really hope that we can also do the same to everyone, even enemies. This video has helped me encourage, motivate, and help my classmates at my new school, Athenian. In the video, the girl reminded me how Jesus helped us.

Helloooo!! Today is a wonderful day to be alive!! (hahaha)

So today Ally and I are doing our devotion! Yay! Happy Wednesday:

God does not create a lock without a key 🔐

Even when there is a lot of problems in our lives, God has the solution. And that we should trust in him.

Verse for today:

2 Corinthians 5:7, “For we walk by faith, not be sight.”

God doesn’t see your issues. When God looks at you, he sees Jesus. (cross)

Hi! So today is my day to do the devo and I wanted to start off with this verse…….

“These things I have spoken to you, so that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation, but take courage, I have overcome the world” John 16:33

Some times we feel like nothing is going our way or there are challenges that we feel like we can’t make it through. God will help us through those times and work everything out for us. Whether its school or personal stuff, God has a purpose for it. So, everyday, whether its good or bad, live your life to the fullest because its all part of his plan for us to live for him. And remember, Jesus has already overcome this world and he loves you!

Today, as you go through this crazy life, remember these lyrics. Wake by Hillsong Young and Free: You will never fade away, your love is here to stay, by my side, in my life, shining through me everyday

From Rebecca

Ever since summer ended and school has started again, I’ve felt that with school five days a week, I’ve been getting more and more tired even though I go to bed at 9. (I know it’s super early) I didn’t realize how much I’ve needed a break from school until I realized what a relief it was to get Monday off. (And then I here I am going to bed at 11.)

School has been more and more time consuming with projects that are due almost every single day, studying that needs to be done, and homework that piles higher and higher.

I feel like there has been no time to think about God’s purpose in life or the amazing things He’s done throughout my day.

I always tell myself every day that I should do my daily devotion and spend time with God to thank him for the small things in life that make it beautiful, but I always get caught up on schoolwork and making sure I have everything for the day.

It seems like every day, school is the torture I have wake up for until I get to go home, work on homework, eat dinner, and go back to sleep to start another round of suffering.

But God has been reminding me throughout my school day to remember his purpose for me. That annoying prodding voice in the back of my head that keeps telling me: “Don’t forget God. He has a purpose for you and wants you to tell your friends you care about their life and stories.” (And the reminder that there are people on the other side of the world that can’t go to school and would do anything to have an education.)

So I want to remind all of y’all that even though you may have those moments when you want to scream into your pillow, YOU are never alone and God needs YOU in his plan.

I read this from my devotion:

Here’s the problem—we want the five-year plan. We want the ten-year package. We want the blueprints of our life to float down from Heaven and land on the kitchen table. But God’s Word doesn’t promise that, and do you know why? Because if He gave us those things then we would check out.

We would stop seeking Him, looking to Him for direction, pursuing Him for His pres- ence along our path. We would try to accomplish His plans on our own, and that would never work because His plans for our lives are such that He wants to be a part of them. In fact, they even are so amazing that they are things we could never accomplish on our own without Him.

So to end of my encouragement for today…

These three reminders: song, quote, and prayer will help remind you that He is working in YOU for HIS purpose and not your own.

Prayer:

“God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.”
