“And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:20, ESV

Like me, you may struggle to remember that God is always right there with you at all times. I often go through a whole day trying to solve all of my own problems and leaning on my own strength. It’s exhausting.

Can you relate? If so, here are a few practical ways you can remind yourself of God’s presence in your classroom.

  1. Set a daily alarm on your phone to remind yourself that God is always present. Learn more about joining other Christian educators daily at 1:16 p.m. for unified prayer here.
  2. Write yourself a sticky note or two and put them in a place where you will see them throughout the day. My note says “He is here.” I keep it in my lesson plan book.
  3. Pray and ask God to remind you of His presence throughout the day. He wants to do this for you!

Father, sometimes it seems like You are so distant from me and my daily struggles. But, when I stop and think about it, You haven’t gone anywhere. It’s me who has been running around trying to do it all on my own. Help me seek You throughout my day. Help me remember You have promised to be with us always.
