It’s been two and a half weeks since I accepted a pre-k (4 and 5 year olds) teaching position, and I can say without a doubt that it has been a crazy and interesting experience so far. I’m going to be completely honest, I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect, or if I would even like it because I’ve never taught pre-k before, and because three days a week I have two classes a day instead of one, but I already love all of those kids so much. They’re really smart and awesome kids, and I find myself looking forward to going to school every day to see them and talk to them.
As if taking this teaching position wasn’t enough change for me, I also decided to move in with my sister on a whim, which is so unlike me. If you’ve read my other postings, you know that I’m a planner, but the rest of my family is very impulsive, so for me to just decide to move out of nowhere is a big deal. I’ve been a country girl my whole life, but when I accepted this new teaching position, I knew I would need to move closer to the city, where my job is, because having to sit in an hour of traffic every day just isn’t something I want to do in my life, so my sister invited me to move in with her, who just moved back into her condo after the flood came though in May.
I’m going though so many changes and transitions in my life right now, and while it’s a lot of work and somewhat stressful, I feel like God is placing me exactly where He wants me to be in this season of my life. A lot of my previous posts talked about trusting God, and I know I keep repeating it, but honestly, God has really been teaching me continuously to trust in Him in every situation, in every season, and in every day life, even just doing the tiniest of things.
It’s not always easy for me to trust Him. In all honesty, there are times when I’m just like, “Okay, God. It would be nice if You would let me in on where You’re taking me here.” but God doesn’t always let us in on His plan. Sometimes He takes us through things or brings us to places where we don’t know what’s going on. All we can do is trust Him and His plan for us, and that’s where I am. I can’t say for sure where God is taking me, but I’m choosing to trust Him, His plan for me, and His perfect timing.
