“I have always had school sickness, as others have seasickness. I cried when it was time to go back to School long after i was old enough to be ashamed of such behavior”
Many feel the same way the French Philosopher feels about school. Going back to school can be a difficult transition. Going from the relaxing and fun summer months to the grind of school can really shock the system. Going back to deal with insecurities, bullies, popularity contests, beauty contests, peer pressures, and homework can feel daunting. In dealing with the back to school blues, here are 5 uplifting scriptures and 5 practicals to set your mind on.
I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.
Practical: Write down your goals and dreams for this year. If there is a person in your school who could use some encouragement, if there is someone who you would like to share your faith with, a bible talk you would like to start, or just working harder and getting all your work done on time, God can strengthen you!
And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.
Practical: PRAY. You can pray about anything and everything at anytime! God wants to help you out no matter what situations you are facing. Pray for help to get your work done, pray to be more confident and secure, pray for that bully to leave you alone, pray to be an example to your friends, pray to not idolize popularity and don’t forget to pray in the moment! Prayers can be outside of our Quiet times as well.
