Sunshine Sunday: Isaiah 40:31 KJV

 

Hey guys! Every Sunday I will be writing a blog post called, Sunshine Sunday, and basically I am doing this to add some light to your week! In Sunshine Sunday, I will pick a bible verse that can inspire you to do the best that you can the rest of the week! Todays verse for Sunshine Sunday will be Isaiah 40:31(KJV)- “But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”

This verse means that we must always build up our faith in the lord and to never lose hope. But the times that we might lose hope and think that our circumstances could not get any worse, the Lord will renew our strength if we have excepted him as our savior. The phrase”Mount up”, translates into the Hebrew word” ˈalah”, which means “to go up, ascend, to go up over a boundary.” This is God telling us to keep pressing on and not give up because the Lord knows what is best for us in the long run. So stay courageous, and know that God will be with us through the worst of it, and to not give up.

As you might have noticed, this is the verse that I picked the title of this blog from. It is a very inspiring verse for me, and for teens going through things in general.

I hope that you enjoyed this post! Please visit Wings As Eagles every day for new posts, and write a comment or like if you enjoyed this post!

Ways that Homeschoolers can get involved in the community

Hey Guys! Todays subject will be on: Ways that home schoolers can get involved in the community.

So I know for some home schoolers it is difficult to get out and get involved in the same things as teens that go to public schools. Most high schools and middle schools will not let home schoolers get involved with school clubs, activities, and sport teams. So here are some ways that home schoolers can get involved in the community.

1 – Join your local home school group: You can look up home school groups for your area and join at a very low cost. Most groups will go monthly and do activities, and some even have sports teams for home schoolers.

2 – Find out a career that you like and research it: There are many advantages of home schooling, one is that you have a very flexible schedule. In your area, look for different career exploring opportunities such as police, fire department, and nurse exploring. You can also look for apprenticeship opportunities for skilled labor jobs such as; carpentry, plumbing, and landscaping.

3 – If you like sports, get involved in your local recreation center: Most recreation center offer a variety of sports for all different ages. All home schoolers and public schoolers can participate in these sports.

4- If you want to be in the military: There are so many opportunities out there for youth and teens that want to join the military. Some of these organizations are better than others, but here is a short list. Young Marines, Civil Air Patrol, Sea Cadets. The Young Marines is a great way to get a head start if you want to join the Marine Corps, to join, you have to be between the ages of 8 and 18. Civil Air Patrol is great for teens that want to join the Air Force, to join as a cadet, you have to be between the ages of 12 and 18. By being in the Civil Air Patrol for 3 years, or until you reach the rank of 2nd L.T, when you are ready to join the Air Force, you can join as a E-3. Last but not least, the Sea Cadets is great for you if you want to join the US Navy.

How to Join Civil Air Patrol

 

Hey Guys! Todays post will be on How To Join Civil Air Patrol(CAP) as a cadet. So maybe you have seen things about CAP on the internet that really intrigued you and you really want to join. The first step in doing this would be to visit a CAP squadron. To start this process, go to the website: gocivilairpatrol.com. On the right side of this page where it says: “find a squadron near you” enter your postal code or city and state, and it will find a CAP squadron near you.

After you find your nearest squadron, it will show you the squadrons website or Facebook page where you can find their meeting nights. The next step is to visit this squadron on their meeting night, to find out if CAP is really for you.

If you find out that CAP is for you, the next step is to go to two more CAP meetings after your first one, this is the first requirement to become a member. When you attend three CAP meetings in total, the last step is to tell a Senior member at your squadron that you are ready to join. Some squadrons make you complete an application and send it by mail, and others let you complete this process online.

After you sign up and are officially a member, you will receive your first leadership book, CAP identification card, and aerospace books in the mail in a few days. Congratulations! You are now a member of CAP!

If you have any questions about how to become a member of CAP, or want to request a topic for me to do a post on, leave a comment or email me at gavyn@flylikeaneagle.info
