The Lord makes firm the steps of the one who delights in him; though he may stumble, he will not fall, for the Lord upholds him with his hand. Psalm 37:23-24, NIV

Did you have a bad day yesterday? If so, don’t give up.

If your students did not respond the way you wanted, you will get another chance to influence them. Don’t give up.

If that lesson that you worked so hard to prepare was insufficient, you will get an opportunity to fix it. Don’t give up.

If you disciplined a student too harshly, you can apologize and ask for forgiveness. Don’t give up.

We serve a beautiful God who will never let us go. He has promised to uphold us with His mighty hand. Don’t give up. You will be glad you persevered.

Lord, I praise You for upholding me and promising to not let me fall. Help me not to give up today. Help me to trust You and continue in my calling.
