I’ve worked in the school system for 4 years in a very stressful position. I prayed and believed that God was bigger than my circumstance and stayed and tried to be a blessing where I could and to whomever that I could.
For the most part I very much like working in the public school system. I would walk to my car on stressful days repeating, God you are bigger. I would like to say that I was always walking in faith, but I was not. Over the past 5 years with the stresses of leaving a painful church situation, my dad going home to be with the Lord, a family situation and my job, it was a bit much at times. I would come back around and say, “God you are bigger,” but still have my times of much struggle. But even in my wandering, doubt, frustration, confusion and sadness, God IS still faithful and loved me in spite of it all. He was working behind the scene on my behalf.
I am happy to say that I have relocated to a new school as the principal’s secretary with my own office. I can see around me opportunities where I can be a blessing. I am so excited and thankful to God for this opportunity. I can now see that God was working on my behalf all along for the right situation for me.
If you are struggling today, know that God is working on your behalf as well. There are never-ending opportunities in life to learn to “walk in faith.” Keep believing that GOD IS BIGGER! Don’t be silent, sing His praises.
You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing your praises and not be silent. Lord my God, I will praise you forever. Psalm 30
