Discouragement-Encouragement/Today at School

My devotion today.........

Humble yourselves before the Lord, andHe will lift you up. ( James 4:10 *NIV )

Sometimes we all become depressed because of thingsthat happen in our lives. For sometimes we feel; We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed;perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, butnot abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. ( 2 Corinthians 4:8-9)

Now when you feel the pressures of life rememberthe words of king David, for he wrote; Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve mylife; you stretch out your hand against the anger of my foes, with your right hand you save me. ( PSALM 138:7 )
Therefore we do not lose heart. For our lightaffliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weightof glory, while we do not look at the thingswhich are seen, but at the things which are not seen. ( 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 )

Humble yourselves, therefore,under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. Amen. ( 1 Peter 5:6-7 )

That is my devotion today. I have been having a hard time with being sick and this asthma crap...God has encouraged me even though I get discouraged. That was totally the opposite but...anyways its amazing the bible verses that come in the devotions...and I love it cuz it personalizes it too and says "Dear Angie.,..etc...but I take it out when I post it so you can read it for you too! Anyways I wanted to share this. Praying everyday...

School today was good except I wasnt totally prepared because I havent really thought about school since I have been sick. Today the bible lesson was about Samuel and Eli and so I quickly made 2 stick puppet things with popsicle sticks to play with the story haha It was a good enough visual ;) I have learned that visuals are A GREAT thing to use for those kiddies...well that is pretty obvious but anything that they can ,look at and participate in too works well and they understand better. Teaching 101 haha

Until later......
