Revisiting My Calling
A few years ago, my school went through major changes in staff. The leadership changed. Good friends left. New people came in. I found myself asking, "Should I stay or go?" During that time, I wrote these two posts:
Today I am still living out this call. On Monday, God willing, we will start our new school year. I will have five math classes that I am excited to teach. I will already know some of my students, and others will be new to me. I am ready. Maybe someday God will point me in a new direction but for now this is where I am suppose to be.
Even though the last few years have been hard, I am glad that I stayed with the calling God had for me. I have grown spiritually, wept a few tears, and made a few mistakes but have also been a part of something amazing.
As our team goes through many changes this fall, I was reminded of the above posts and how they relate to our current season here in Central Asia. Dear friends are moving in a new direction. It is hard. Things are uncertain. It would be so easy to question if I should be here or what will happen. But this one thing I know, God is not finished with what He wants to do with me here in this place. It may not make sense. It may not be easy but this is where I need to be.
