Now there is great gain in godliness with contentment – 1 Timothy 6:6.
Have you ever wanted a certain job, but realize it just isn’t the right fit? Recently, I applied for a high school math teacher position, but quickly realized that mathematics really isn’t my passion. For me relearning three levels of high school math was like trying to fit the round peg into the square peg. Next, I also inquired about an elementary position, but unfortunately I don’t have any of the required elementary school training. Note that I am very thankful for those who prayed for me during the application process. However, I am left questioning where God wants me to serve Him the most.
While I like to get my PhD in instructional design in education, it is a very costly endeavor. In order to reach my PhD goal, God has blessed me with several courses to teach at different college campuses for the Fall 2022. The rest of my summer I will be setting my technology and web design classes. The lesson that I learned is sometimes one just has to be content with how God answers prayers and with what one has been given. Yet, I do pray that God opens the right a door for a full time job. I know that God’s timing and plan for my life is perfect. For now, I am where I am supposed to be teaching, as I will forever let my light shine for Jesus.
