The rebels…those who buck the system, ruffle feathers and cause ripples. They get things stirred up. They go forward when some stay back. They stand up when most stay seated. Rebels aren’t just soldiers like most think when we say the word “rebel”, they are thinkers and people who MOVE. They get up and go get ’em! They accomplish. They win.
The Steven Jobs quote puts it best:
Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.
Today, a pack of Rebels are graduating from the high school I work. I’m so excited for them! I remember way back when, I graduated from this same school and was so excited, confused, sad to see my dad cry, unsure about the future and scared about the fact that I would have to be a “real” adult soon. I know a lot of them have these same emotions. They want to be sooo happy, but have these insecurities and “what ifs” holding them back. All of this comes with things that are new…when one door closes, waiting for the other door to open is just downright worrisome!
I pray for their PEACE. I pray for their calm. I ask God to bestow on them His ultimate grace and guidance. I hope they all open their eyes much sooner than later that He is the only one who will NEVER EVER change in their lives and THE ONE who they should always cling to in all circumstances.
Graduation is a great celebration and one that makes a 17 or 18 year old child believe they are invincible. I pray God allows them to remember that they CAN do anything…through Christ who strengthens them!
CONGRATULATIONS GRADUATES 2014…Rebels or not!
