Dear Heavenly Father,

You have been so good to us.  You have been better to us than we have been to ourselves.  Thank you Lord for your many blessings.  Thank you for the breath in our bodies.  Thank you for being God.  You are alpha and omega, beginning and the end.  You are a healer and a way maker.  You are King of Kings and Lord of Lords.  Thank you for allowing us to be your children.  Thank you for fighting our battles for us.  Thank you Lord.  Forgive us for ever sinning against you.  Lord I pray that you keep your hand upon us every minute and hour of the day.  Bless our homes and families Lord.  Open the window of heaven and pour out a blessing that we cannot even think or imagine.  Lord you are able to do exceedingly and abundantly above all that we can ask or think.  Lord we are thanking you in advance for what you are about to do.  It is already done in Jesus Name.  Amen.

Praises Go Up

When the praises go up, the blessings come down.  Have you ever wondered why it is so hard to accomplish the things that we set out to do?  Well, it could possibly be that you are trying to do things all on your own, without any help.  There is help for you.  His name is Jesus.  You can get through trying times in your life.  Begin to praise him for what he has already done and what he is going to do.  Change can come immediately.  Things can be one way one second, and another way the next second.  Immediately.  At the snap of a finger.  Give God the praise and watch things change.  You may be expecting the situation to change.  It might.  Just know that God is in control.  It may be that the change needs to begin with you.  Your outlook on the situation might change.  Your thinking might need to change.  Whichever it is, give God all the praise, all the glory, and all the honor.

Expect the Best

You are what you think.  If you think negative thoughts, chances are, negative things will happen.  Make it a choice to think good thoughts.  Expect the best from a situation.  Some situation and issues can get you down if you let it.   The key is:  Don't let it.

When you come to realization that God loves you and is in control of every area of your life, then you can rest with a peace of mind.  Nobody said that bad things wouldn't happen.  The truth is, we all have trials and tribulations.  We go through them all of the time.  Yes, we go through them.  This test was not meant to be permanent.  You can go through the fire and not get burned.  That is, if you believe.

Preparing for Transitions


1 Thessalonians 5:8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.

Students with disabilities often face the same challenges that regular education students come face to face with after graduation.  Most young people believe they are ready to conquer any challenge that is presented to them.  This theory will prove to be true if preparation is made for the future through proper planning and transitions.

Violence Prevention

 Numbers 6:26 May the LORD look on you with favor and give you peace.

School violence is on the rise.  Unsuspecting students, faculty and staff report to school with hopes of having a good day.  Instead they are sometimes met with the intent to injure or even kill by unhappy people.  It can be prevented by teaching others how to manage difficult feelings.

Violence is the end result of the inability to control feelings.  Angry feelings or thoughts can result in negative outcomes if emotions are not managed appropriately and timely.  In some cultures, it is uncommon to discuss feelings with others.  This pattern has been passed down from generation to generation.  As a society, it would be a good idea to open up about our feelings.

Before any situation gets to the point of violence, it’s often begins with conflict of some kind.  Most young people think of conflict as a fight.   They are correct.  Conflict can also be something simple as a difference of opinion.

Violence can be prevented by De-escalating the situation while it is small.  It is very difficult to manage conflict when it gets to the crisis stage.  Conflict resolution can be used to avoid violence.

If you have ever tried to rationalize with an angry person, you know that it gets harder to manage the situation as emotions increase.   When dealing with an irate person, it is important to appear in a non-threatening way.  Be sure to watch body language.  Clinched fists indicate that you want to fight. Speak in a calm voice while using cooperative words. This is an attempt to get the other person to calm down somewhat by lowering his or her voice as well.  This is voice matching.  Say the name of the person if it is known.  When relating your opinion, it is important to say we or our in order to show that you are not trying to dominate the situation. Listen to the point of view of the other person.  We live in a diverse society.  We have so many different opinions and ideas.  It is important to listen with an open mind.

Conflict often gets out of hand when one person tells the other what to do.  Listening without forcing your ideas on the other person or blaming him for problems can de-escalate the situation.  The main objective should be to solve a problem or situation.  Brainstorming together will allow each party to give his opinion without resulting in violence.

All situations cannot be resolved through conflict management.  If the situation continues to get out of hand, it may be best to leave the situation or seeking assistance from an adult, teacher, security, or police officer.  Always attempt to leave the situation if weapons are present.

Simple techniques can be used to dissolve conflict before the situation gets out of hand.  Always keep in mind that violence can result in injury or even death.  With the right training and coaching, we can live in a society filled with love and peace.
