It is here. High School Graduation Day for my youngest son. Looking for a quote to mark the day and a photo to bring it to life has been a challenge this morning. And so here are my thoughts . . .
I could go on and on - with quotes that are all about the future and what lies ahead, chasing your dreams and taking charge. But what it all really comes down to, is the foundation we build the future on. And so my favorite words for graduates are the words my Grandpa Hastings wrote in my autograph book - back before I was even a teenager. They are probably one of the most quoted scriptures - but in these words - such great promise lies:
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him - and He will direct your paths." - Proverbs 3:5 and 6
pairing that with the quote above, leaves one with another often quoted verse,
"If God is for us . . . who can be against us?" (Romans 8:31)
Congratulations to my Jacob, and all of his friends and fellow graduates this year.
If only we all lived with these words in our hearts . . .
