*SUNDAY SCHOOL HYMN*

*1.* O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
O how I love Thee well,
I am happy, it makes me glad
To rejoice at Thy birth.

*2.* O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day, Thy friendship suits me well,
Both young and old will sing Thy song,
We long for Sunday School.

*3.* O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
Christ was Thy first teacher,
The Holy Spirit, great teacher,
Does manifest in thee.

*4.* O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
This testimony is sure,
That God, the Father Almighty,
Poured His blessing on Thee.

*5.* O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
Though the sun be so bright,
Or if the clouds black with rain,
I’ll be in Sunday School.

*6.* O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
I rejoice to see Thee,
Will thou pass over me today?
Without my being blest?

INTRODUCTION:
At least five possibilities exist in having a turning point in one’s life. These are when things go from bad to good, good to bad, bad to orse, good to better and a combination of any two or more of these categories.

Obviously, these possibilities are determined by the decisions we make and the circumstances in which we find ourselves in our abilities and limitations (1Chronicles 4:9-10). ReadOPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR TEENS SUNDAY 18TH FEBRUARY 2018: USE YOUR BRAIN WISELY

IT CAN HAPPEN AGAIN
Regardless of your present situation, you can experience a possible turn-around if you do the following:

2. Return and ask for mercy if you are already backslidden (Ezekiel 33:10-13).

3. Restitute so that God can make good what is bad for you (Joel 2:25).

4. Redress, seek after God and His righteousness (Matthew 6:33; Hebrews 12:2; Psalm 121:1-8).

5. Re-fire, do not quit, and keep trying as things can be better (Ephesians 3:20).

CONCLUSION:
Where and what you are, are functions of the choices and decisions you made and still making. Make up your mind to get to the positive side of life. The tide is still turning.

TEXT REVIEW: PSALM 126:1-6
David wrote this Psalm in celebration of the return of God’s people from captivity .
David explains that the Lord Himself was behind the return and that was why it was like a dream. PS 126:1

Six things happen when the captives return:
i. People’s mouth are filled with laughter. PS 126:2

ii. People begin to sing praises to God. PS 126:2

iii. People begin to give testimonies of God’s great acts. PS 126:2

iv. People begin to experience rejoicing and gladness. PS. 126:3

v. Harvesting in joy prevails over sowing in sorrow. PS. 126:5-6

vi. Sowing seed is accompanied by bumper harvest.
I am very sure God has determined to turn the Tide of our land from scarcity to bumper harvest with this lesson.
