There are a lot of changes afield in education. Examinations are changing – many which had a large component of coursework are now 100% exam, also the way schools are run are changing.
In particular, my child’s secondary school is becoming part of a multi-academy trust, and a new Church school is being created in our town.
Change can be a good thing, similarly it can be a bad thing. People often become unsettled when thinking about change.
However, when thinking about this I am reminded that God holds the destiny and purpose of my children in His hands. He is not on the throne panicking because things have changed in education. God knows the end from the beginning. He knew about all of these things when my daughter started attending secondary school, in fact even before she was born, and His purpose is not going to be thwarted because of these changes.
God knows the plan He has for my children , and nothing will stop Him from accomplishing that purpose in their lives.
Relax! You can trust Him. He is still on the throne and His purpose will not change.
Jeremiah 29:11 says, “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (NIV)
