When I was young the three words ‘back to school’ filled me with sadness that the summer holidays were over but also excitement of a new year, a fresh start, another year of possibilities. I loved having new shoes and a new hair cut ready to start the term. (Although some of my hair cuts were pretty awful to be honest!) I loved getting brand new exercise books that inspired me to do my best neat handwriting, and catching up with friends again.
To start the next year right you will not only need to have some practical items in your back pack but you also need to carry with you some things that money cannot buy.
You may not know what this year will bring but God does and He goes ahead of you in every step that you take.
God says in Joshua 1 v 9; “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
Be encouraged, remember God is always with you and go and have the best year yet!
