Some kids have already made their way back to school but they can still use these tips. For those teens heading back after Labor Day, let’s start the school year right. Here’s some reminders from the Christian Post and we’re praying for complete success for your school year!
Back to School: 3 Crucial Reminders for Christian Teens
1. You are not alone.
As you walk into the doors of your school remember the words of God to you, “‘Never will I leave you never will I forsake you.’ So we say with confidence, ‘The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?’” Hebrews 13:5,6.
Don’t be afraid of being beat up by bullies or criticized by cliques. Why? The King of kings is with you! The one who gives the bullies breath is holding your hand as you walk the hallways of your school. So enter your school with a holy, humble confidence that God goes with you (because he does!)
2. “Do your best. Forget the rest.”
Tony Horton, the physical fitness guru who developed P90X, uses this mantra over and over in his workout routines to encourage his exhausted subjects to just do their best. He tells them to take a break from the exercises if they need to but to make sure they are pushing to do their very best without losing form. The results are amazing! You’ve probably seen the before and after pictures of those who’ve completed P90X on their always-on-some-station television informercials. How did they get those results? They did their best!
