One would think that at age !?#@*, God would have let me in on what He’s got planned for my life. I would be there and be settled comfortably.
God gave me a gift for teaching and a desire to be nothing else when I was young, so I was a teacher for 20+ years.
Then He said, “O.k., now I have something else for you.”
I honestly went kicking and screaming out of my classroom. It took Him 3 years to get me to listen. But I did. I walked out of my classroom almost 17 months ago, not knowing what I was going to do.
God and my husband led me to a place where I still work with students, only now they are college level and have some form of a disability. After 12 months in this position, I finally feel like I have a handle on things in my new place.
So God decides it time to shake things up a bit.
He has placed an opportunity before me that I’m not sure I’m meant to follow. This opportunity was dropped in my lap and would clearly be a step of faith.
I still don’t know if this is what God has for me or if this is an “are you willing” test from God. I am willing to do what ever He leads me to do. It can just be scary.
Did I mention I do not like change?
What a blessing to know that God already knows how this is going to turn out. Being able to rest in Him and wait (the hard part) for Him to lead me in the right direction is what keeps me sane.
We will get through this week and see what happens.
