I’m scared about going into 7th grade because people are saying that most of the teachers are really mean. But all I want is to do a good job and not get into trouble or yelled at. Should I be scared or just go see what happens? Please help, thank you for your time.
1 Peter Chapter 5 verse 7 says we should cast all our worries onto Jesus. Why? Because He CARES for us – just think about that! Your parents can only care for you when you are at home. Jesus cares for you all the time! So that even includes when you are at school!
What sort of peace are you looking for? Maybe a teeny bit of peace? What about “perfect” peace? Will “peace that is perfect” be peaceful enough to drive out the fear? I think it should be.
Although these are words which were written thousands of years ago, people were the same then as they are now, and the fears you feel in your mind are exactly the same as the fears they had then.
So, remember, you are in God’s presence all the time – stay in the place of his presence.
