This month’s prompt reminds me of the phrase “When the student is ready, the teacher appears.” How apt when September is back to school month!
The Schoolroom of Life
As I sit at my desk in God’s classroomIt feels like the first day againI’m nervous and excitedAbout what I might learn this yearThe Teacher is good, all the timeHe knows the gaps in my educationWhat methods work bestI prepare myself for what He has in storeThe Teacher holds the futureHe knows just what I needMy hands are open, ready to receiveFrom the Author and perfecter of my faithI’ll avail my student's heart and mindTo the One who made meThe One who knows all about meBehold, He is doing a new thingBecause His love never failsAnd His ways are higher than mineI will trust Jehovah-jirehAs I sit at my desk in God’s classroom
