Christian Leadership Day 4

by Emily Kuzmak

To be a leader you need to lead in love. Christ is love. In order to be a good leader and in order to be a Christian leader we need to incorporate love in all that we do. Try to think about every time you say something to someone are you saying it out of love? Or Are you saying it out of selfishness? Christ wants us to be the complete opposite. He wants us to be selfless. Ask yourself daily are you being a loving and encouraging leader? Or are you putting people down and disobeying What you were called to do? In 1 Corinthians 16:14 it says “  Let all your things be done with charity” Be a servant for the Lord. Make the Lord known among nations.

Sometimes it is hard to try to be a leader when you feel unable. That is when it is important to lean on others that share the same motive as you. Find someone that you can go to and seek advice from. Maybe it’s someone that you don’t really know well? Maybe its someone that you’ve never talked to before? Maybe it’s someone that you see that sits alone at lunch? You may not know them right now, but unless you expand your horizons you may never know them. The Lord wants you to join with others to hear his word and to help others learn to know and love him. You can always lean on the Lord, but the Lord does provide people in our lives that stand in place for him.

Christian Leadership Day 2

You might find yourself with little faith and trust in God or others. You might be discouraged or easily let down. Moses was one of those great leaders that had little faith. He had a moment in his life where he “struck the rock”. He had given up and his patience had been worn thin. I’m sure you have had one of those moments just as I have. In those times you can remember, that God wants you to come to him in your times of distress and when you feel like giving up. In Proverbs 3:5-6 it says “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” The Lord wants you to come to him with all your struggles. He might not comfort you or respond in the way that you would like, but if you put your trust in him, he will be with you till the end of your days.

 

Leadership Day 1

When it comes to being a leader anyone is capable of being one. It doesn’t matter if you are short or tall, large or small, you can still be a strong and respectable leader. A leader doesn’t have to be an adult, or someone that is older than you, it can be you! Take David for example, in 1 Samuel 16:7 it says “But the Lord said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.” Allthough he was doubted by many, the Lord put his trust in David. Even though David was a young man, he came out to be a strong and successful leader. The Lord looks straight upon your heart, yes we all put up a front around others but the most important thing is that the Lord sees the true you and that is what you will be judged upon. God wants us to stand up for what is right no matter what position we are in, do not be afraid to take a stand, and remember the Lord is always with you.

 

Stress Less Day 5

My last thought is put the Lord first. Psalm 16:8 “I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.” Setting God first is a hard thing to do because there are so many other things that we feel need to be accomplished. Have you ever thought that by following God’s will it will help you to not get overwhelmed and stressed? God’s ways are not always easy, but keep God first. Do not put people, life, work, or school above God. You may have a super huge test tomorrow, but have you spent time with God today? Someone may have asked you to spend the night, but have you given God your thoughts and stresses? Keep Him close and keep Him first.

Another great thought about stressing less is to give the burdens of life to God. Matthew 11:28-30 says, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your soul. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Jesus had the weight of the whole world on His shoulders, however, He said that His burdens are light. God will provide His peace if you just give your stress to Him. It is a simple thing to think about, but it is hard to not stress. God will take your burdens from you all you have to do is give them to Him. Think about all that Jesus went through and you still didn’t see Him stressed. Pray to God and ask Him to take your burdens from you.

 

 

 

Stress Less Day 3

Today’s thought to help stress less is that God is there in the times when it feels like no one else is. Sometimes it is helpful to share stresses with others so they can pray, but there are times when it seems there is still no one to help. God will answer, it may not be the answer you were expecting but He will answer. God will be with you through it all, give it to Him.

One super awesome way to help stress less is to commit what you’re doing to the Lord. God says in Proverbs 16:3, “Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established.” If God is in charge of everything being done He can add His blessings. It is sometimes hard to see God’s plan but He will always be there to help.

 

Stress Less

A Blog by Katie Myers

How many people struggle with stressing about every little thing? Many people get overwhelmed with even the littlest of things. God doesn’t want Christians to feel stressed or overwhelmed. In 1 Peter 5:7 it says, “Casting all your care upon Him; for He careth for you.” God wants His people to share all their stresses and problems with Him. God even cares about the littlest of things like work or school. Stress is a normal human emotion according to a study done by the America Institute of Stress in 2014, seventy-seven percent of people in the world experience stress regularly. Christians need to focus less on stressing and more on giving our cares to God. Take a moment and ask God to help with every little thing that is causing stress in the lives of His people.

Grandparents Day in Review

Grandparents day was such a blessing. Through the years, I’ve learned a lot from my grandparents and I continue to learn from them. On grandparents day, I got to hear about my grandparent’s first apartment and how they got to where they are today. Then several of the other grandparents shared their wisdom and encouraging words to the economics class. It was wonderful day made even better by the program. I hope that the students were as big of a blessing to the grandparents as they were to me.
