So I thought I would write a blog now that school is starting and many people are all feeling… What’s the word? Oh stressed. Whether it be in public school, private school, or homeschool, everyone feels some sort of pressure and stress. Why is that? Is it because we fear failing or doing something wrong? Is it the amount of work? Is it the drama between friends? Well I believe it can be a mixture of both.
Whenever I feel these emotions, it is easy for me to become overwhelmed. But when I go back to God’s Word and am reminded over and over in the scriptures that He is there, it significantly lowers my stress.
Now I’m not saying that praying the night before a math test is due will automatically give you an A, but it knowing that our Heavenly Father is always with us is definitely reassuring and really helps get me through the year.
“Do not fear: I am with you; Do not be anxious, I am your God. I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with My victorious right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
