It’s the first day of school and many households are re-learning getting up and getting going. Summer break is over and children are putting on new clothes, new shoes and donning backpacks. Some are riding the bus and others are being carried in the family car. Old friends will be hugged and new friends will be made. Some students will cry, some mothers will cry. The cafeterias will be baking and the playground equipment will be full. It’s a fresh start kind of morning.
Oh beloved, do you need a fresh start? Is it time for a change? In your attitude, in your demeanor, in your outlook? Today, like school children all across America, you can have that change. You can put on a new look and walk a different walk. I know things have been bad for a long time. Maybe someone’s tried to help point the way for you but you’ve rejected all help. You may be angry, tired, frustrated, hopeless, dejected, miserable. There is One Who will pick you up and take you where you’ve never been. It’s never too late to let God teach you in His School. Run to Him this morning and open His Study Guide. It’s more than a book – it’s God Breathed! God’s Word is True and it’s written just for you. Because He loves you He can take all your misery, all your mistakes, all your futility and restore your faith, your joy and your hope. Try Him today! He loves you and He’s for you and that’s all that matters.
Psalm 51:12 Restore to me the joy of Your salvation and sustain me with a willing spirit.
Jeremiah 17:14 O LORD, if you heal me, I will be truly healed; if you save me, I will be truly saved. My praises are for you alone!
Psalm 6:2 Have compassion on me, LORD, for I am weak. Heal me, LORD, for my bones are in agony.
Lamentations 3:22-23 The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is His faithfulness; His mercies begin afresh each morning.
