Scriptures to Ponder for the Back to School Season

It’s that time of year again. Summer has come and gone for those of us who attend or work in public school. As the new school year begins, anxiety brews on each side of the teacher’s desk. Here are just a few reminders to help get your school year off to a great start.

These reminders can aid both student and teacher alike from kindergarten through the collegiate level.

S – “fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”- Isiah 41:10

C – “Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!”- Psalm 27:14

H – “Our soul waits for the Lord; he is our help and our shield.”- Psalm 33:20

O – “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.”- John 1:14

O – “Blessed are they who observe justice, who do righteousness at all times!” –Psalm 106:3

L – “But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”- Romans 5:8

Take some time this week to encourage both the young people and the educators who are returning to the classroom. Encourage them to be emboldened as Godly people and to continue to be a light in a world of darkness.
