Who am I Lord, that you would use me? 

Thank you, father, you have chosen me to do the job you have placed me in.  Forgive me for desiring appreciation from.those I work with.  I have felt so alone at work Lord.  PlEase be with me. Put on my heart ways to encourage others.  Thank you Father that you love students, teachers and families alike. 

Lead me also as I have crucial conversations with students and families.


In the wilderness, the enemy desperately tried to distract Jesus from his mission.  He tempted him with power, food, illusions of glory,

Valley Life is a mission for some of us.  Satan isn’t necessarily tempting us with power and food, but he does do everything he can to distract us and others.  I see that happening with the homework issues, teachers feeling powerless and overwhelmed…. 

Jesus didn’t deny he was hungry, or God’s son, he didn’t deny he would suffer for his father’s sake, he simply turned back to scripture. 

Thank you Father for your word.

He ate nothing during those days, and at the end of them he was hungry.   The devil said to him, “If you are the Son of God, tell this stone to become bread.”   Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone.’  ”    The devil led him up to a high place and showed him in an instant all the kingdoms of the world. And he said to him, “I will give you all their authority and splendor; it has been given to me, and I can give it to anyone I want to. If you worship me, it will all be yours.”   Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God and serve him only.’  ”    The devil led him to Jerusalem and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down from here. For it is written: “ ‘He will command his angels concerning you to guard you carefully;   they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.’ ”   Jesus answered, “It is said: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’  ”    When the devil had finished all this tempting, he left him until an opportune time.
