edu180atl: rebekah wheadon 8.10.11
Today I was walking around my new school building, getting used to being in Junior High. I learned that some things will change.
In art I learned that our personality will change by liking new types of art. I also learned that I should not change my appearance. I am created in God’s image just like He wanted me to be.
In social studies we learned our society will change. We won’t always live by our neighbors. Sometimes our friends will find different friends. Another thing that can change is the buildings. For example, the Little White House recently burned down.
In science we learned our minds could change. We need to be careful about what we set our minds to. One main thing I focus on is God. He is the way everlasting (Psalms 139:24). Another thing I focus on is schoolwork and homework.
Here is one way I experienced change today:
This morning I was nervous about my homework and making sure I had it all done. I could not seem to shake the feeling I had forgotten something so I wrote this verse on my arm: Search me, O God, and know my heart: test me and know my anxious thoughts. Psalms 139:23. Every time I was nervous, I looked at it, I grew calm.
Change will come. If you haven’t experienced change yet, you will. You won’t always expect it, but be prepared by being ready to keep going after the change.
