42-15725302Well summer is officially over and school is back in session. Swimming pools empty, city parks vacant, campus parking lots filled, hallways busy, cafeteria food served, homework given, new principals adjusting, coaches coaching, athlete’s working out, teachers teaching, students studying, band playing, cheerleaders cheering, these are some of the things going on in just about every town in our country. People are getting back into the groove of things that go on for the majority of the year. Some are excited about it, others not so thrilled, regardless of how you feel about getting back into the groove, we have to.

There are things in life that we look forward to and some things we strongly dislike to do. I hope that we don’t get consumed with disliking things. It is easy for us all to do what we love to do, life would be so great. But those things we dislike do wonders for lots of things. I know I feel better after I labored over something that I dislike to do and then when it’s finished I am glad that I had that experience.

The Bible always gives helpful advice when we face life with not wanting to do some things. Listen to the words of God to ad us in dealing with life. Col. 1:28-29 “We proclaim Him, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone perfect in Christ. To this end I labor, struggling with all His energy, which so powerfully works in me.”

Allow God to work in you and He will give you ways of dealing with not wanting to do certain things. Whether you are back in school or teaching, ask God to help get you back into the groove and HE WILL!!!!!!

Have a great week,

Michael
