8:28 or 8/28?

I know that most kids were not looking forward to today with it being the start of the new school year.  I spent a good deal praying for many of the youth as they began another year of academia…  I also can’t help but see the significance of todays date (8/28).

Look to Romans 8:28

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

Many students today are feeling like “what good can come from me going to school?”.  I believe this year can be an amazing year for our students.  I believe that many will be used by God to “work for the good of those who love Him”.  Students, what can you do to make the most of this year?  What is it that you have been called to do?  Maybe help a friend feel connected?  Maybe reach out to one who feels unknown?  Is there a word of encouragement that you can share with someone who needs it?  Are you in a class so that you can be a positive example to someone who is headed down the wrong path?

Just because you aren’t feeling like this new school year is anything to be celebrated doesn’t mean that it can’t be.  Make the most of your opportunities and trust that God will do His part…
