For all the teachers that are making their way back to school and welcoming new students on campus this year, take a few moments to be encouraged.
In this episode, Nika reads an excerpt from her daily devotional book for educators and administrators entitled “Keep Teaching,” in the hopes that you will turn to these messages of encouragement and faith throughout the school year.
Coming straight from the heart of a teacher, Nika shares about the insights and lessons she learned from the Lord during her time teaching in the public school system, and uses those experiences to bless the hearts of other teachers.
Whether you are about to enter into a tough teacher-parent conference, dealing with a difficult concept to teach on, or just want to prepare for your day, you are invited to spend some quiet time with God and draw strength and refreshment through these quick messages.
Let the Word of God soak through your life and into your heart.
Read His Word out loud, proclaim it with your mouth, and let your ears hear what your heart believes.
Come sit in the presence of the Lord as Nika shares five messages from her book, including:
- What to do when you feel like God doesn’t hear you
- Allowing God to guide your words
- Giving encouragement to your students, even when you don’t have much to give
- Letting God’s Word bloom in your heart when it’s meant to
- Caring for your health and focusing on healthy habits
We hope you feel encouraged today and will Keep Teaching!
Verses referenced: 1 John 4:16; Matthew 10: 19-20; Ephesians 4:29; James 1:21; 1 Corinthians 9:24
