[This picture wasn't taken last night, but a few weeks ago at a different game!]
It was nice to be with some friends.
What wasn't nice was when a foul ball bounced off the rafters above us and when whizzing just inches over my head.
That. was. scary.
Today in Sunday School at church we talked about this:
"Give us strength according to our faith in Christ."
We talked about how having faith can strengthen our hope and even help us to be less stressed.
I thought about how scared I am for a new job this fall.
How worried I am to have to plan lessons again, to manage a class of 25 kids, and to make sure they are all learning and succeeding.
Being a teacher is hard, and quite frankly, terrifying.
I realized, though, as I listened to the teacher, that I don't have to be stressed out about it if I keep Christ there with me. Yes, I need to work hard and do my best, but the Lord will step in and He will not let me fail. After all, my students are His children. I just need to always pray for them, and pray for guidance in helping them to succeed. He will give me strength.
