When I was in High School I decorated my locker with 3×5 index cards with scripture verses that I was either memorizing or that helped me get through the day on a regular basis. I remember stressful times when I would tearfully open my locker and just focus on those words, letting peace and confidence wash over me. That’s what the word of God does for me.
So I am launching into the school year with a scripture posted on a mini whiteboard right above my desk. This is my first year as Vice Principal and I’m going to need all of God’s help that I can stuff into my little hands. Here’s what God is promising me for this year:
“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.” Psalm 32:8
This is God’s promise for me and I’m going to cling to this. His loving eye is on me and He’s going to lead me in the way I should go, teaching me along the way. With God’s help, I totally got this!
