Encouragement for Graduates

6/8/2017 12:00:00 AM

It’s a very special time of year! Many students will be walking across the stage, receiving diplomas and moving onto the next step of their lives. We want to send a big congratulations from all of us at New Life! You did it!


Once the celebration is over, you might find yourself nervous for what lies ahead. Maybe it’s a new school, new living situation or new job; whatever it is, this is the time to ask the Lord to guide your steps as you walk ahead into this new season of life. It can be exciting, but also a little scary. Here are a few verses to remember that can encourage you in what the Lord has in store.


“The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” - Deuteronomy 31:8


“I will praise the LORD, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me.

I keep my eyes always on the LORD. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.” - Psalm 16: 7-8


“Commit to the Lord whatever you do and he will establish your plans.” - Proverbs 16:3


“You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you” - Isaiah 26:3


During this exciting time, don't forget to reflect on His goodness throughout your years in school. He’s been there for every tough exam you’ve had that you thought you couldn't make it through. He’s blessed you with instruction and friendships that will last a lifetime. Rejoice in Him as you enter the next stage of your life and eagerly await to see all the wonderful things he has planned.


Congrats Grad!
