Haven’t I commanded you: be strong and courageous? Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9 (HCSB)
As many of us in Alabama begin a new school year today, I pray that my son has that verse on his heart. We’ve memorized the verse in two seasons of Upward basketball, and we studied it in Sunday school this past year. I know that he knows the verse. I pray that he lives it in school. I pray that your children do as well. I pray that through their behavior, their words, their actions, and their decisions that they are living testimonies for Christ. I pray that they are salt and light, and that their influence changes lives.
