Today’s verse mentions that we’ve been given self-control. That means we can control ourselves even when the teacher is boring.
Today’s tip for success at school is to show up. Your body might be in your seat, but often, mentally you’re checked out. You’re thinking about what’s for lunch or what you might do after school.
Instead of letting your mind wander during class, be determined to show up mentally. It’s amazing how good you can do on a test if you’ve really paid attention in class.
So today, if you’ve gotten in the bad habit of not being present mentally, remind yourself of today’s verse. Realize that you have self-control and you can determine to pay attention. You’ll be impressed at how your grades will improve if you show up mentally to class.
This Saturday, Firm Foundations will be hosting a car wash at either Betty’s Catalog or Town Hall. We will start at 8:00AM. All proceeds will go to the college ministry for our trip to Passion 2020. Please come out and support this great ministry!
SEE YOU AT THE POLE
“See you at the Pole”
Next Wednesday September 25th, 2019.
See You at the Pole, the global day of student prayer, began in 1990 as a grass roots movement with ten students praying at their school. Twenty years later, millions pray on their campuses on the fourth Wednesday in September.
See You at the Pole is simply a prayer rally where students meet at the school flagpole before school to lift up their friends, families, teachers, school, and nation to God. See You at the Pole is a student-initiated, student-organized, and student-led event. Please pass the word onto your friends at school to meet at the flag pole on September 25th.
