School is in and itʼs time for class…

Proverbs 3:5 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own

Itʼs that time of year again! Kids, teenagers, and young adults are preparing for grade school, middle school, high school or college. The new year does not begin with out preparation.  However, you must have supplies, new clothes,
equipment, etc. and a girl or young lady must have a new hair style!

The anticipation of what the new year is going to bring can be quite exciting!
You must, however, prepare yourself for change, which can be a new classroom with new people, new assignments and what is going to be expected of you. Life never stays the same and we can always count on change from year to year.

Like our kids, teenagers and young adults, we also have a classroom in front of us.  Itʼs called the classroom of life. We have to prepare ourselves for this new school year, rather it be letting go of our little ones not being at home all day, sending our young adults off to college or preparing for what assignment the Lord has for us for the new year.

I am so thankful that the Lord is with us as we go into the unknown classroom of life.  We can count on Him to never leave us or forsake us. What we learn in this classroom is priceless because we can hand it down to our children and the people God places in our lives.

As I prepare to lead a ARC Womenʼs group this fall, I am excited to learn from the other women that is going to be in my classroom, which are women in ministry. This classroom will bring new faces, new prayer partners and trusting the Lord for what He is wanting to do in these relationships! Last year I had so many divine appointments and learned that just because I could not see what was going to happen or who was going to be there every time, that was okay!  I had my assignment.  I was part of the classroom big or small and trusted God to showed up… and He did!

I may not be in a school, but I sure do learn new things every year! I am praying that my classroom of life this year bears much fruit and I can bless others around me with the lessons I learn. What is your classroom in front of you? Has the Lord given you a assignment?
