Climbing a Mountain...
School has started, and I’m really into it. New beginnings call for zeal and perseverance, and I feel like this is what I need to do- hit the ground running. It feels like I'm climbing up Mt. Everest!
So I won’t be posting as often as I’d love to, but rest assured I won’t forget you all!
Today man sees all his hopes and aspirations crumbling before him. He is perplexed and knows not whither he is drifting. But he must realize that the Bible is his refuge, and the rallying point for all humanity. It is here man will find the solution of his present difficulties and guidance for his future action, and unless he accepts with clear conscience the Bible and its great message, he cannot hope for salvation. For my part, I glory in the Bible.
- Haile Selassie I (1891- 1975)
Emperor of Ethiopia
I found this powerful quote today, and I feel like it’s INCREDIBLY true. This week I’ve started doing my own devotions- just me and God. It’s a lot different that our family devos, and, though I like our time as a family and God very much, there’s just something special about alone time with my Heavenly Father. I’d like to encourage you all to find a great teen devotional to do every day. I can’t even begin to describe how much it’s already helped me get through the stress that’s been heavily attacking me.
These next three weeks will be pretty rough on me, so I’d greatly appreciate your prayers. I’m a real person who struggles with new things, and starting another school next week will be no easy feat.
Onward, to climb and conquer more mountains!
