Courage & Back To School
0 2

Love it or dread it…back to school season is here! This time of year signals a time of transition. Young children off to their first day of Kindergarten. Teachers finalizing lesson plans. New students wandering in circles. Anxious high schoolers faking confidence.

Some invite new experiences. Others feel fear. All must move forward. Regardless of age or life circumstance, many of us feel the same way. It’s fun attacking new situations with confidence, isn’t it? Confidence is different than courage. Courage often involves fear while moving forward. It doesn’t necessarily mean you feel courageous.

As a child, I was shy and introverted.  I found new situations involving relating to strangers very difficult for me. Was I sometimes fearful? Definitely! Over time, as I faced new situations, I learned I wasn’t as inept as I felt and actually came more confident. Am I still fearful sometimes? Absolutely!

In this season of transition, are you facing something you’re fearful of? Be encouraged to move forward with God’s help!

Courage to you!

  • Hi friends, welcome. So glad you are here. Friday has come. And, I don't know about you, but I am feeling overwhelmed that September is very fast approaching. Weren't we just talking about August starting? Back to school is around the bend and fall is trying to make its way with a few leaves here and there turning red and orange. Seems like summer is fighting for its place too with these hot days we've been having. Sometimes we are just stuck in the in between. Wherever you are right now, whatever you are going through, you are welcome here.
