PRE CLASS: students present work done over the week for instructor’s critique.
OUR INSPIRATION FOR TODAY: Psalm 118:24 “This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” God has given us today. Yesterday is gone and tomorrow will always be tomorrow we just have today. Treat today like a gift from God. Be thankful for everything that comes your way today good and not so good. Since The Lord made today he is in charge, acknowledge that rest in it and trust Him. God is good, his plans for us are good so what we try to do today should also be touched with his goodness. Be positive and optimistic, do your best remembering the Lord made this day. If things turn out bad say, “Lord I know you are in charge this didn’t turn out like I thought but you are in charge so it’s ok show me what I need to learn from this.” Resolve to rejoice and be glad
