Today is the first day of ninth grade and high school for my brother and I! This year, I decided upon a schedule: get up at seven, devotions, make my bed, shower and all that, feed the animals, feed myself, do seatwork/homework, practice guitar, blog (as I am doing this very instant!), work out and/or dance, lunch, lecture time with Mom, any other chores, then I’m free! So far, the schoolwork has been harder that last year, as it should be, and there are more subjects too! I have a tall stack of books at my desk. And algebra. So awesomely fun, not. Previously, they did a review of the last year and then jumped into the new stuff; not so this year! Just dove into the nitty gritty right off. And so many pages to read in all the subjects, then you have to answer questions on what you read and study the bold and italicized terms. It’s extremely overwhelming to look at that pile of books and know that I will have to learn all of it in less than a year! How is that possible!?!?
Nothing is impossible with God. If I pray every day and ask for help and strength, He will give it. He wants us to work hard for success, though. I can’t just pray and not do any work. Hard work is a part of life! Getting out of it might seem fun at first, but it isn’t good for anyone in the long run. Don’t you feel good after you finish a test and know you did well because you studied, or come home from work and know you pleased your boss with your diligence? It doesn’t feel so good when you know you didn’t pay attention in class or avoided your boss so that you wouldn’t have to work. Hard work feels right because it is right. I’m telling myself this as much as anyone else, because I need to hear it, too!
Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise: -Proverbs 6:6
With men this is impossible; but with God all thing are possible. –Matthew 19:6b
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. -Philippians 4:13
Thanks for reading! Please comment and tell me about a time you felt good about the work you had done, or not so good 😉, or about how your high school years were/are. I look forward to hearing from you! God bless, BibleBloggerGirl
