so if you've been following, you know i've been wrestling with a big decision in my life for the past few months. you also know i haven't been able to post many details about said situation.
well, now, i can.
it's about my job.
on monday, i gave my two-week notice. i hope to become a teacher.
there are many reasons i want to be a teacher -- a journalism teacher, mind you -- not the least of which is that the only thing i've ever wanted to be besides a journalist is a teacher. there is also my heart for teenagers, the magazine dream, summers off, christmas off and a fairly sizable raise.
problem: i still don't have a teaching job.
that was the dilemma. i needed to quit my current job now in order to be available for staff development if i were to get a job for this school year.
kinda scary, huh? yeah. i freaked out for quite some time as you'll recall.
landon and i both struggled with why we felt the Lord was asking me to take a step of faith and quit without having another job. at times, it felt just plain stupid.
but we couldn't deny the urging so i did it.
i told my bosses i didn't have a teaching job yet, and they said, "well, do you want to work here until you get one?"
we didn't even consider that option. it never occured to me that they'd ask me to stay. either i was going to get a teaching job, or i was going to be searching for something else, which was the scary part.
but it's just like God to think of something you never would have. and it's always better than anything you could've come up with, isn't it?
i love my job at people so it's an awesome scenario.
i don't know where things go from here, but i do know that the One who is faithful never ceases to amaze me.
