Motivation To Help You Stay Strong Through The Rest Of The School Year!

“Hail, the end of the school year! All salute!!”

I am so excited for spring and summer! As the snow melts into the ground, I am inwardly bouncing around just thinking about wind in the trees, sun on my back … yep, this is the good life!

One thing is a little difficult … coming back to earth to think about school, and finishing up the grade! Most of us are going to take a summer break, and for those of us who are, it can seem like that break is sure a long time in coming! But there are a few things that we young people can keep in mind when eagerly anticipating the end of the school year.


It’s not just about finishing up school. There is a lot more to it than that. Just think about it … why are pretty much all of us are getting a little demotivated with school or feeling overwhelmed with the amount of end-term work we have?

Because the issue is not only external – what we are struggling with is PERSEVERANCE.

“Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us”

Hebrews 12:1

“And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope.”

Romans 5:3-4

“My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.”

James 1:2-4

“But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love.

2 Peter 1:5-7

So, although you might have thought that this whole motivation thing was only about school, it’s not. Its also about perseverance – finishing what we’ve started – running the race set before us – building character – and “faithing it” throughout life.

So, let’s have perseverance.

Let’s remember to live FULLY.

We’ve committed to this school year – let’s finish it strong!

Our parents are counting on us – let’s make them proud!

Some of us are graduating this year – make this a month that YOU are proud of!

And most of all, let’s make God proud!! Let’s show Him how grateful we are for the blessing of education, by making the most of every moment we have (even if it is a difficult subject or topic!) Let’s not drag simply because our stagnant natures want to slack. Let’s motivate ourselves! We can do this!

And finally, as one of my friends says …

“You can do it! You can do it! You can do it! You can do it!” (By the way, you CAN! ๐Ÿ˜‰)

    Amen! Loved all the Scripture you had in the post! I am pretty much done with school now, but I’m sure I will need this reminder again! Both for my summer (involving Bible Bee) and 11th grade.

      Aw, thanks so much Grace!! Yes, I feel like studying the Bible is really similar to school in a lot of ways … one of them being that there are natural dry periods where we donโ€™t do it as often, and need to pull ourselves back into it again! ๐Ÿ˜… Yes, I thought Iโ€™d put a unique spin on it! ๐Ÿคฃ

    I loved this, Makayla! I have just about three weeks left of school and Iโ€™m getting so tired, but this was such a great reminder that I need to push through the final few weeks! And boy, am I excited for summer when thatโ€™s all finished! ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›

    Ah, thanks for this great reminder! I’ll have my legal days of school in this Friday, but I’ll be working through school this summer. I have nothing really to do this summer besides Bible Bee, so school keeps me busy. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Totally! Glad you liked it! ๐Ÿค— Yes, sometimes it feels like on summer break thereโ€™s nothing to do! Iโ€™ll also probably be working through some school this summer as well … but Iโ€™m planning on giving myself a break whenever thereโ€™s a hiking opportunity! ๐Ÿคฃ
