The plight of a teacher or leader in the church sometimes is that we feel the pressure to be perfectly focused and motivated all the time. The reality is that it isn't always possible as we walk through the different challenges of life. It reminds us to be completely dependent on the Spirit, however, and that's when the real work starts! Great perspective!
I liked how your MC knew to pray and how to pray and why he prayed so wonderful to be grounded in that belief. Keep writing.
What an understatement -- Jr. High is challenging:) Things go so much more smoothly when we allow God to work through us, for sure. Great writing.
Good story, well-written.

Add a bit of junior high dialogue and you'll knock this one out of the park.
"What I especially like about being one of Gods children is that he will help us speak and will teach us what to say. We just need to lean on him." Amen!

Unfortunately, it takes a very long while and much unnecessary struggle before many grasp this understanding.

Great read! But I felt it was missing something.
Good personal testimony and that is the real message of your article when we let go and let God, he ALWAYS comes thru. Good job.
