 Verse of encouragement or devotional 

Adjunct Faculty: Please personalize this verse/devotional. 
SMEs: Please leave the above note to Adjunct Faculty; however, provide your team with your closure. 

Example I: I Thessalonians 5:18 tells us to “give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus”. This powerful verse reminds us to be thankful. One of my friends traveled to China an experienced the struggles of the underground church there, first hand. WOW! How quickly do we forget what we have here! I asked my campus students a question, “What good things have you experienced today?” Granted, this was an early morning session, but most of them said nothing. This absolutely broke my heart. We all take so much for granted. Let us focus on being appreciative for even the little things in life. (Everything from sunshine, grass, flowers, snow, electricity, water, food, bed, home, car, clothes, shoes, a parking spot, etc.….) WOW! This can really be an amazing list! As I personally reflect on these positives, it reminds me not to dwell on the negative events in my life. 

Example IIAs you start a new term, it is important to reflect on prior performances to gain insight and help you set realistic goals for this term.  If you have had prior college experience, what are some of the things you did well?  What are some things that you could improve on?  What are some things you have done well?  What are some things you could improve on? 

If you have a desire to grow, learn, and develop a better sense of discipline, you have to be intentional in your life.  You must seek out intentional choices rooted in action to achieve the goals you set for yourself.  

The last few days, the Lord has been dealing with me about being more intentional – with my personal life, my work, and my free time.  In Proverbs, Chapter 11:1-23, Solomon encourages the wise and gives warning against the wicked.  During this passage, we are shown what a godly life looks like and how to display righteousness.  This passage describes how godly characteristics do not naturally flow from us, but we must constantly battle to make intentional choices to display godly character. 

This week, as you start a new term, what intentional choices will you make to display godly character to your family, your school, and/or your job?  How will you live more intentionally?  Set some measurable goals for your personal, spiritual, and academic pursuits for the next 8 weeks.  Let’s see the Lord work through us living intentionally for Him.  


Closure
