For All the Broken Hearted…

Die to self.  The cross requires death.  When you see the pit, you feel the pull towards the pit-stop.  Combat this with the truth of God.  Natural self would have you think and believe things that are not true.  The lies are all around us.  Die to the lies!  Refuse to believe anything contrary to God’s Word, casting the enemy to the curb.

Top Ten Words of Advice for My Teacher Friends or You Are Tired Already, Aren’t You? (Repost from August for all those starting your new teaching job in January)

I am a good teacher. No, I am an excellent teacher. God has equipped me and called me to teach these children. They may be a well disciplined class or not, but God has me right where He wants me and I have a job to do. I can change a child’s life forever by educating and loving him/her. I can potentially change many lives by changing this one. I will not shy away from disciplining or loving where needed. I will not always be the most popular person in my room. Jesus wasn’t either, so that’s ok.
