Thoughts for the Week, from the Chaplain

Week Beginning 15th July 2019

This week's theme: Moving On

 

I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:13
 
What are your goals for the future? What things have shaped these aspirations in your life? The next few months will bring changes, what are they and are you ready?
 
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11
 
Does everything that happens have a silver lining? Do we create our own futures or is there something or someone else involved? Does our plan tie in with God’s plan for us? How can we know?

Prayer for this week

Father,
It’s been good here, a safe place to learn, to grow, to flourish, catching a vision for my future, but now it is time to move on. I know what I need to do, yet I hesitate. I lack confidence in myself, I need your help, Your guidance and strength. Help me to remember that I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. I must hesitate no more. I must procrastinate no more. It’s time to go forward, letting go of everything that is holding me back,
 I am moving on with you!
Amen!

 

 

 

 

 

 

The School Prayer

Eternal God,
Help us through our duty to you
To love our neighbour,
To care for others,
To do our best for and in school,
To work for the common good of our community,
And to care for ourselves as we serve you.

Amen
