I firmly believe that for every door closed God will open another. He never leaves us without and there is always a plan in place...even if we do not know what that plan is. You know the saying "patience is a virtue"? Yeah I need to work on that one.
After making the decision to move back home and go to Southeastern for grad school, I knew I would need to start looking for a job. I wanted so badly to be out in the real world and be a big girl with a big girl job. And I wanted to have the job RIGHT NOW!
There was a problem with that. My schooling will not always allow me to have a full time job. Yes my classes will be at night, but once I start my practicums and then internships I won't be able to work all the time. So what was I suppose to do?
I thought maybe I would get a job at the school. This way they would know what they were getting if they hired me and would be more willing to work with my schedule. And I thought I had found a job to apply for.
But when I looked yesterday to finish my application the job was gone. They had already filled the position. What was I suppose to do now? I was so let down and didn't know where to go. So I prayed about it.
Little did I know God had been preparing me for this.
I LOVE kids. And I hate the idea of not being able to work with kids in any way. My job at the gym was still there for me if I wanted it. And I know in the fall I can substitute teach around my schedule. This opportunity and job has been there the whole time.
This was not what I thought I wanted to do. It is not following the plan that I had in mind for myself post graduation. But the door has opened and I feel that it is the right path to follow. And I am majorly relieved that I have secured me a job.
So here is to looking forward to being back with my kiddos and enjoying the doors God has so graciously opened for me!
