When I was going into the sixth grade, my parents sent me to a private Christian school. I think it was probably to make the transition of to going to school in another town easier. The learning would be comparable to the Florida Virtual School, where you need self-motivation to achieve a goal. I was not a self-motivated child, so I didn't do very well there. However, I was pushed to learn the 23rd Psalm, which has now become an important part of my prayer life. I find it quite amazing how God will give your life a detour just to set in stone something for Him. When I feel anxious or fearful, I turn to that Psalm for comfort and let God's own words settle me. We must remember that the Bible is a compilation of God's words written by many men, imparted by one Holy Spirit. I know that I'm thrilled when my kids have remembered something I've taught them. Imagine how God must feel hearing His own words being quoted back to him.

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-17
