Lift and Stretch
August 4, 2022
From Pastor Cody Paige
Welcome back to school Teachers and Students! Whether you are just starting in Pre-K or on your final year of college, I’m praying for your success this year. Whether you are teaching for your very first group of students, or a seasoned vet I’m praying for your success this year. Often when we start something new, or are close to finishing an arduous process we need strength and courage. The good news is that no matter where on the scholastic spectrum you are, God has got your back.
Notice what he says to Moses as he begins his journey across the Red Sea, “But lift up your rod, and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it. And the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea.”
All I want you to do this semester when things get rough is lift and stretch.
When you feel weak, lift and stretch.
When you feel overwhelmed, lift and stretch.
When the the break is far away, lift and stretch.
When you lift and stretch, watch God part the uncrossable this year.
Watch Him speak to your students.
Watch Him open your mind to understanding.
Watch Him bring you success.
I believe He’ll do it for you, just like He did for Moses.
God bless you,
