“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.” 1 Timothy 4:12 NKJV
Graduation on any level is a highlight for parents and graduates. It means MOVING FORWARD. Going to the next level. The graduation season is when families and friends joyfully come together to celebrate accomplishments and completion. From preschool to postgraduate, graduation ceremonies are a memorable celebration time. Graduation ceremonies are symbolic of a rite of passage to the next chapter in the graduate's life. During the graduation season, things can become very hectic and demanding because multiple ceremonies can be on the same day of the week and at the same time.
However, no matter how complicated graduation can be, the graduation season is here to stay. Even during the pandemic, the world introduced us to virtual graduation. Like all the seasons of the year come and go, it seems we are always graduating from one season of life to the next. But, there are some things we will not graduate from. We will graduate to it.
Graduating to loving GOD more…You will never reach the point of loving GOD too much. Obedience is Loving GOD, His people, and His creation.
Graduating to reading your Bible more…Reading your daily is essential. Your “right-away navigation system” points you through all the twists and u-turns in life.
Graduating to needing people more…GOD made our community so that we would need one another. It's called “Helpers one to another.”
Graduating to sharing with others more…Giving as GOD has commanded is an act of Obedience. When you give more to Him, you are trusting that He will provide for our needs and beyond what you expect.
And graduating to elevation in GOD…Growing in GOD always have from one level to the next level. This is the Holy Spirit’s territory. He helps us to grow into the people GOD created us to be.
As we graduate to GOD, He will give us everything we need and show us which way to go for His Glory and for the good in our lives.
Dear Heavenly FATHER,
Thank you for the seasons of growth that lead to elevation and more in you. May the season of gradation 2022 after the pandemic bring Glory to you. - Amen in JESUS’ Mighty name.
