He has you where He wants you.
He places us in spots where He can use us.
Do you ever wonder why He chose this spot?
Sometimes things don’t make sense.
But that’s not our job.
To make sense of it all.
That responsibility rests on God’s shoulders.
Our job is to trust Him.
Trust that He knows what He’s doing and will cover us with His feathers (Ps 91).
I’ve had quite the journey lately.
My favorite teaching place never materialized.
My first teaching job nicely pushed me out the door.
My “dream” teaching job evaporated.
My first long-term sub job was a mistake.
My next job offer I refused as I knew it wasn’t God’s plan.
But the very next day, God flung wide the door.
It is so right.
My job doesn’t make any logical sense.
Because I jumped multiple grade levels.
I’m implementing a new program with a new subject.
And was hired less then a week before school starts.
But I know God’s here.
I’m right where He wants me.
And I know I’ll do an amazing job – ONLY because He will guide me every step of the way.
I don’t have my teacher safety net filling me with lessons from years past.
Everything about this job is foreign.
(might launch into a kindergarten calendar poem with 13 year olds)
The absolutely only thing I can do is rely on Him.
Step out of your comfort zone.
See where God takes you.
And yes, my first day was fabulous. 🙂
