Starting Again In A New Place

I am waiting to hear from a new school to which I have applied.  I was told that I was already selected as one of their new recruits.  I am waiting to hear where my assignment will be and what my salary will be.  Most people at this point in life would not consider starting over in a new place for any reason but, that is not a major concern for me.  I believe in what I do and I know that children are always a part of the landscape of my life.  I look forward to the challenge ahead of getting to know new co workers and building bridges to new relationships.  I do know that everyone does not always gel with one another, but I am depending on the Christ in me to help me find my way. I will do what is required and more to fulfill  what I need to do and show others the love of God, even when it is hard difficult.

Confessing Again

I would not be honest if I said that when trouble comes, because I am a believer in Jesus Christ, that I can move along and not be concerned. I can say that recent circumstances makes me look at things differently. Facing the truth about my limitations is liberating, especially when I can be a control freak.  I never had control.  It is not a word to be used in my personal vocabulary, as it speaks to what I thought I could do. I am at the mercy of the Lord Jesus Christ and what he is willing to allow in all things me.
Attacks come as we align ourselves with what the Lord wants from us and Satan is ready to do what he does best. He would have us believe that the way to make it right would be to fix it on our own and not pray for help and guidance.  He would have us vacate the path of righteousness. I know that restorting to my way of resolving issues does not work.  I know that if I am not careful, I will go back to the unfocused, unforgiving, self-centered woman that I was.  This is not about me. Kingdom work is at stake. I am being required to raise my game.  I have a very good Idea of what I am being called to do and I must be prepared for the fight.  Great scarfice makes great gains.
Prayer is my only hope and seeking the face of God is my remedy for all thing.
