Family,
Yesterday at my job (I'ma elementary school teacher), one student decided he wanted to run around my room, bump into other students and desks, bang on my piano's, etc.....so I finally get him to sit down (after like 20 minutes) and go back to teaching! Anywayz, he tries to run out the room so I grabbed him by his shirt collar. He kept on pulling away saying "You're choking me" but I let him know he was choking himself by trying to run away. Bottom line, I'ma be investigated now, and truth be told I know they didn't dust his neck for prints b/c it would've been clean. So now its just my word against the students of his class. Pray that truth prevails, b/c I'ma little disheartened right now.

Wow Psalmist i didn't know u was a teacher but most def u will be in my prayers. When I was student teaching a while back this little boy got out his chair and tried to throw it at me, trippin and I was like "BOY IF YOU DON'T GET IN UR SEAT!!" Thank God that he did though but I know how different class situations can get...stay prayerful. God knows where ur heart is. God Bless!

Psalmist, my mom's a teacher as well. Y'all really gotta love what you do! FOR REAL! But yeah, I used to work at a group home and I dealt with a lot of kids that we HAD to put our hands on, of course we had managing aggressive behaviors training and the like to know how to and stuff, but still things sometimes escalated and the trained-hands-on sometimes went out the door and we just had to do what we had to do. I was investigated once, but there was a witness...any-who, praying bro, I know the wait can be intense.

Join me in prayer!

Heavenly Father,

We approach Thy throne of Grace reverencing You as being more than enough in all of the exigencies of our lives. We praise You for the many testimonies we have of Your stepping into the painful and perplexing circumstances of our lives!

So we come before You anticipating once again another opportunity to praise You for interrupting our heavy lots with grace. Father we lift up our beloved family member to You asking that You would graciously go before this Psalmist in this incident and show Yourself strong.

LORD flip the course of this whole situation in such a way that the student and his parents would be placed in a position to have the Gospel ministered to them. Let all onlookers be perplexed by the manner in which the Psalmist conducts himself throughout this ordeal.

Father encourage Psalmist...Edify the saints watching...Evangelize the lost that are watching...and be Glorified!

In Jesus name

Amen
