Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin… Zechariah 4:10 NLT
God readies us to do great things. He prepares us for the future and opens our hearts for STRENGTH. Parents PRAY for PEACE as they prepare their children for school and deal with the emotions of change.
In the seasons of life, God equips us for new beginnings. He arms us with everything we need to help His children grow. He helps us remember who's in charge of ALL things and CALMS us with the kindness of His love.
God uses teachers to make learning fun. He eases the worry of wonder as we teach our children to TRUST. He blesses the steps we take to nurture independence and reminds us who takes care of us. God helps us step in FAITH and BELIEVE He will bless our souls.
He opens our hearts for PRAISE so we will welcome gratitude. God reveals His will when the timing is right. He opens our eyes to witness His blessings. The joy of the Lord is our strength! We must always be ready to learn something new.
For this reason, I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, Ephesians 3: 14-16 ESV
Dear God, thank you for the power of Your love. We will TRUST in YOU as our children learn and grow. We’re so grateful for the plans You have for our days. Give us PEACE as we welcome new beginnings and STRENGTH to flourish and grow. We will remember why “little things will make big things happen“ as we take the necessary steps to draw closer to YOU and share the heart of Your love. Thank you, Lord! Thank you for our precious children. Please keep them safe at school. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Amen
