There have been several times over the past month when I have ran into former students. Seeing these students and hearing about all that they have been up to since middle and high school has been rewarding. The successes of "my kids" or former students do bring me joy!
As God's children, He is interested in our lives, too. He wants to hear from us and He wants us to do well. We can talk to God and tell Him about all that we have been up to in our lives. He is especially eager to hear how we have used the lessons He continues to teach us. When we are following Him and walking in His Truth, we can live productive lives. By listening to and acting on God's teachings, we will bring joy to Him and to others!
Learn from God, use what He has taught you, and bring joy and praise to Him!
Thank You for all that You have taught me and for the blessings in my life. Help me to continue to learn from You and to put my learning into action. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
