August 2019 Devotion
On your mark, get set, go! A new school season is upon us. And the start of the school season is a perfect time for us to renew our minds. Let’s welcome the 2019-2020 school year with positive thoughts. Embrace this season with excitement. Don’t focus on past failures and disappointments. Ignore voices of negativity and doubt. And most of all, remember God’s thoughts concerning you: thoughts of peace and success.
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. — Jeremiah 29:11 (KJV)
Dear God, as I begin the 2019-2020 school year, renew my thoughts so that they reflect Your thoughts. May thoughts of peace, success, and hope carry me and my family through this school year, in Christ Jesus’ name, Amen.
