Can you believe it, it is already December. The last month of the year and then the new year will begin. It seems like this year has flown by. More than any other month this month is filled with business. The end is close but it seems like things just keep piling up and you feel like you will not get everything done in time. Exams, evaluations, work, planning for the holidays and so many other things take up your time. When things get difficult it is easy to fall into despair and become frustrated. Satan uses this frustration to tear us down and tell us that we can’t do anything right. He tells us that nothing we do will be good enough and that we should just give up. Don’t listen to him! When things get tough remind yourself that there is a God who wants to help you. He wants you to succeed and be happy. Philippians 4:13 says ” I can do all this through him who gives me strength.” So keep your chin up!
Here are some ways to stay confident and finish the year strong!
- Avoid negative self talk
- Focus on the positive
- Challenge yourself
- Connect with people who will support you
- Put your trust in Jesus!
