Reflections Before Bedtime #38

By: Gabriela Yareliz

Today was the first day of school for all public school kids in NYC. It was a day filled with tiny cuties wearing their backpacks. Some cried and begged their parents not to leave them, others seemed to confidently go in the direction of new friends. Do you remember, back in the day, how your first days of school went?

In life, we encounter new things and old things. Sometimes, our lives feel like a continuation of old plans and desires, other times, we are at crazy turning points where tough and wise decisions must be made. Sometimes, a strange insecurity creeps up on us, and we feel stress like a pile of bricks.

I just wanted to say today, that regardless of whether it’s your first day in something or a day like many others, if you feel bored, scared, hopeful, or insecure– don’t forget that the God who has brought you this far can carry you the whole way through. Sometimes, in our heads, we picture God helping us reach a certain point, and then we imagine He disappears or is later disinterested in our journey, but that is not the case.

“The Lord has done what He has purposed; He has carried out His word.” Lamentations 2:17
