As the end of the school year approaches, there is always a lot to do. While this year is no exception, the work looks different as we finish the school year from home. As we move through this new territory, there may be some levels of anxiety. Even if you are not in school, there still may be anxiety or nervousness about other events in our lives. In the midst of it all, we can find joy, patience, and faith to help us!
First, we know that God is always with us, so we have a source of strength. We can find joy in the hope that God provides in our lives. Second, we need to have patience. Whether we are anxious or suffering from some other affliction, God is with us. We can wait on God's timing and action in our lives. Finally, we can be reassured by our faith and continually have a conversation with God through prayer. We can know God, find hope, and have patience through our faith in Him!
Find joy in God's hope. Be patient to wait on Him through all afflictions. Have faith and continually communicate with God through prayer!
Thank You for the hope You provide and for actively communicating with me. Help my patience and faith to grow as I rely on You. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
