The Lord Himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.
I’m continuing with back to school inspirational quotes for your children during the month of September and today’s blog post is on instilling courage. As your children return to school, they are dealing with many different fears – fears of the unknown such as new teachers, new classmates, new activities, etc. The Bible is filled with stories showing how ordinary people overcame their fears by keeping their focus on God. Pick out some stories and read them to your children.
One wonderful example is Daniel in the lion’s den. Discuss the characters in the stories and how they stood out from among the others. Select verses focusing on courage and help your children memorize them. Pray with your children for strength and courage during times of transition. Talk to them about the situations that they are going through. Help them develop a deep understanding that God is faithful and will always be with them.
