Finishing Strong

For those of you who are members of the Technology in Lutheran Schools Ning social network, you received this in an email yesterday. For those of you who are not members, I decided to post it here as a source of encouragement as you finish out these last weeks of the 2012/2013 school year.

How "strong" are you finishing out this school year?

The video below was recently shared by one of my teaching colleagues at morning devotions and highlights the impact of "finishing strong," even when it seems too difficult.

Maybe you are feeling a little beaten up as the school year draws to an end? Maybe this has been an especially difficult year?
Maybe it's been difficult to be the best teacher you can be?

Don't give up! Get back up and finish strong!

Take to heart God's words to Joshua:

"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9 (NIV)

Not only does God call us to be strong, but He even provides the means by which we can BE strong (He will be with you)! The trumpets of Easter may have faded amidst the planning of spring field trips, looming end of the year report cards, and student portfolio grading, but the victory of Christ over sin and death is enough to strengthen you into and through the final days of this school year!

  So, how are you finishing the school year?
