As school comes back into focus I have only two weeks left until I go back. Going back to school for my senior year hasn't been my major focus and I'm wishing it was, I only dream I wouldn't have to worry about college in the middle of it!

With this new year ahead I'm trying to be mindful of how I start this year with purpose and positivity. I don't want to be aimlessly doing homework and counting down the minutes until the weekend on Wednesdays. 

I want to have intention with my school work.

One verse that has stuck out to me is Galatians 6:9, Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. I don't want to give up on anything I do this year and feel that everything relating to school is my "good work" at the moment.

I don't want to become weary. I don't want the stress that I feel welling up inside of me before a test to stop me from studying ever again. I truly believe that if I choose to be positive about this school year and the challenges that come with it, I will have a much better year.

I will be praying over this verse frequently throughout the months to come, I cannot wait to see how I can use this verse and other passages that I'm memorizing to help me throughout the seasons. 

How are you preparing to go back to school? How do you manage to keep a positive attitude throughout the year? I'd love to know!

Post inspired by this and this.


  1. Wonderfully written as usual! I agree that having intention with school work helps tremendously. I keep a postive attitudre throughout the school year but revisiting my inspirations. I know this sounds stupid... but legally blond helps to motivate me to study. Im not exactly sure why... but it does.

    1. Thank you! Your comment blesses me so much. Intention will be a game changer this year and I love Legally Blonde! I'll have to see if it helps me study! Thanks for the tip!
