Many of you know that I have been a LTS in a school district for 5 years. Last year, I really felt like the Lord was asking me to be willing to lay teaching at His feet and follow Him no matter what happens. My dad died the same year and I went through two grieving processes. I needed to let go of teaching even if it meant I would never have my own classroom again. It has been a long, emotional journey of wrestling with God, asking lots of questions, going through times of unbelief and finally total submission to Him. I interviewed again this year in the district I was a LTS in, but I still didn't get hired. It seemed like that was the end of teaching for me. I decided to pursue some other options, but last week I was called for an interview!! I have the interview today. I don't know what will happen, but I will praise God if I get the job and I will praise God if I don't get the job. Whatever happens, God knows what is best for our lives even when we can't understand it. Some of the things I learned through this journey are that God is moving even when He is silent, we need to let go of our plans so He can work His plans in our life, and we need to continue to worship Him even in the difficult times. I hope this helps some of you who are going through discouraging times. God has the perfect plan for our lives, and He will fulfill His purpose for you.
