God helped me make an important decision this week–No matter how difficult it is, I am not going to give up teaching my 6th grade class. He reminded me of his faithfulness and of his promise to me to “Jai-O” me. (I found out the technical way to spell that is jai you…) “Don’t you believe I’ll help you?” God asked me. Hmm. Forgot that.
I need to keep my eyes on Jesus, not on the waves. I have been pulling a “Peter” and looking around at all the scary things in my ocean. But that is not what I need to look at.
All I know is that I am alive. I am here, even though it seems very dark sometimes. But like David said one time, God turns my darkness into light! -Psalm 19:28
If you have ANY encouragement to offer right now, I really need it. We have the call to build each other up in the body, and I need encouragement and a push to keep going. I will make it through! I will.
- Pray for encouraging words from those around me.
- Pray for me to see ahead and plan efficiently.
- Pray that I make it through the semester.
- Pray that my transition time would quickly come to an end… you have no idea how long it actually takes to get a hang of life in another country!
Keep the Faith!
