There is always the mantra of picking ourselves up after the dust has settled, in an effort to coax us into getting over difficulties easier. What if the dust never really settles, as you are constantly reminded of the past, therefore you can never really let go? Some cultures believe that we never really leave things behind, they are always a part of us – even the Bible reminds us of that as well in various contexts. We may be forgiven of the sin, but still carry the weight and memory of it – lest temptation reigns supreme and we are back down that hole. But what about when we have to say, “It’s finally time to move on.” Where does that now lead us to move on to? Another person? Another town? Another memory? A lot of us may move on, but we may move on to the same issues packaged in a different environment or person.

The air is always too thick around here during the rush of activity during back to school week. It’s too humid, too warm still and so many leftover memories from Summer makes you wish we had another few weeks to lie on the beach. All good things should be cherished, remembered and eventually have to come to an end. Today marks the first day of school for some. That first day is always filled with anxiety especially if they are taking the bus for the first time. New friends, new teachers, and new challenges that will shape them through the year and teach them growth.
With the ease that popular culture has in reaching our youth today (and some adults), I think it is important to remember that during our time of growth, we remember to keep our feet firmly on the ground and remember what is important.
Put God first and pray each day.
I don’t believe in shoving God or religion down anyone’s throat because it defeats the entire purpose. Just know that in times of trouble and especially since this is a new start for so many of you, prayer can move mountains and calm seas (literally and figuratively actually). If you struggle with accepting that, I completely understand. There are so many things in life that make us question everything. What is real? Why is my life the way it is? Why can’t I find that answer on Google? Start slow, study often and let the word come to you. Take that with you this year and as you grow older. Empower yourself through faith not fear.
I encourage you to do well in all aspects and remember that roadblocks are keys to finding success. I’m sure this year will fly by and what will you have to show for it?
