Opportunities for Their Capacities to be Stretched

The new school year is just a few weeks away for my grandsons; the summer seems like it has just flown by for sure! As my grandsons look forward to the start of school, we are talking about how they are able to know God better by being people who talk with Him each day.

I know this new year holds stress for my grandsons - especially as one will be going to a new school for 6th grade where he does not yet know anyone. All three of them will have times of joy and times where they may feel sad or discouraged or confused or stressed. But, as Chuck Swindoll said; "Alleged impossibilities are opportunities for our capacities to be stretched." In the last weeks leading to the start of school, we are talking about how God is always with my grandsons and they are able to trust and talk with Him; in the blessings and stresses, no matter what.

Be intentional and make time to talk with your grandchildren before they return to school about the blessings and stresses awaiting in the year before them and how they are able to trust and talk with God. They will all be opportunities for their capacities to be stretched.
