It seems important to share what Gina Yeager-Buckley wrote in the devotion, d365, which is focusing right now on returning to school. Like the rest of life, new situations at school can be frightening and stressful. Gina writes:
Where is the wilderness you must go this week? And where is your UP [by UP, Gina means the ways, places, etc., that give us encouragement, clearer perspective, and a way of refueling]? Consider the people, places, and activities that give you strength and encourage you, and those that lead you into the wilderness.
Who do you turn to when you are afraid? When you are confused or need to talk through something? Are there people that will listen, pray with you (even though we can certainly pray alone), or just sit with you?
We all need these people in our lives - please know my door is open!
