Here’s my lesson for the day. “You ARE good enough.” I remember one of my students who came into the classroom after the school year had already begun. She was, I guess what you’d classify as a “less popular” girl. She was quiet and reserved and didn’t seem to really fit in. Anyway, I had these novels that we were reading. Although, I had enough for each student to have their own, half of them were newer while the other half were worn and ripped. So, I gave the “they’re all the same speech,” and hoped everyone would be cooperative. But, I noticed when another student passed them out one day, she gave her friends and the “more popular” kids the newer books. Of course this new girl received an older one. I felt bad. I knew she probably felt bad, too. But, she just came up to my desk and said, “may I use some tape to fix this?” And started taping up her book. There’s so many lessons to be learned in that.
You can make the decision each day to decide to be defeated…OR that you are good enough. What does God say about you? Because He would never say that you aren’t good enough for Him or His best.
Zephaniah 3:17 – “The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves.
He will take great delight in you;
in his love he will no longer rebuke you,
but will rejoice over you with singing.”
