One of the hardest moments we face each year is releasing our kids back into the world – be it preschool, college, or somewhere in between.
While summer can bring its own set of challenges… and while we’re exhausted and ready for routine by its end… summer is a sweet season for us to connect in a deeper way with our kids. We get to spend concentrated time pouring truth into their heart, often using our words to undo the effects of the world.
So sending them back to school can create fear and anxiety because we want our kids to know how much they matter. We want them to be confident in who they are. We want them to thrive.
Father, will you bring peace and remind us that You care about those same things?
We worry and stress, wondering…
… will they be liked?
… will they fit in?
… will others treat them with kindness?
