The Class of 2020 will leave high school stronger and better prepared for life than any class before them. Amazing! As they fix their eyes on Jesus, they will have successfully completed an intensive crash course in “Perseverance 101.” As a family, please pray for our senior class. Their names are included in the devotional.
Being a person of courage does not mean living in denial of adversity or trials, and it certainly doesn’t mean we can eventually develop a complete immunity to fear. Rather we press on in any circumstance with the overwhelming conviction that God has everything under control. He never fails. He is almighty and everlasting. There is no one like our God.
There is an old song we used to sing in church titled “Count Your Blessings.” Part of the chorus goes like this: “Count your blessings; name them one by one. Count your blessings; see what God hath done.” Take some time as a family and rehearse the goodness of God over the last few weeks. Count the blessings that are all around you and look for more.
The time to train up courageous leaders is now. And that is why home learning is so critical. Our teachers are the real heroes! They are committed to pointing every single student – from preschool to seniors – to the one truth that matters – and that’s Jesus.
Gather with your family around the living room or dinner table and read this devotional together.
