Thoughts for those that are walking this journey with us.
We are less than two weeks from the beginning fo the 2019 fall semester. It will be an exciting year - over 11,000 students will be wandering around the CMU campus.
Many of these students will feel overwhelmed - leaving home for the first time. Their support system has been removed and they were told to "grow up".
One of my students described this as: "I was really good at swimming in the kiddie pool, but now I am drowning in the ocean."
Parents, schools, and churches have done a wonderful job preparing these young adults for life, but when they feel overwhelmed, they can forget everything they know. The need the support of loving Christians (such as YOU) to surround them with a safety net and help them to regain their footing.
Psalm 145:6 says: "One generation shall praise Your works to another And shall declare Your mighty acts."
As the school year begins, do not forget to pray for these young adults that are swimming in the ocean - don't let them drown.
