I believe, Lord.

I believe that each of my students is your child.
I believe that they are a reflection of your love.

I believe that each child possesses special gifts and talents,
that you are entrusting me to help them discover these gifts
and nurture those talents.

I believe that each child is trying to find you,
And that I can be a model of how to look,
How to live, how to pray.

I believe that my job is actually a mission, a ministry;
That you have chosen me in this time and in this place
To be there for these kids.

I believe that there is nothing haphazard about my day,
About my experiences with my students or with their parents.
It is all part of your plan.

I believe that you have chosen me, Lord.
I believe.
