Monday I went back to school. Not as a teacher. But this time as a student.
I began my first class towards my master’s degree. In order to teach, I must first learn.
It’s a fast track class, four hours per night face to face three nights a week for two weeks with homework. It’s called Math Pedagogy, and our text is called Best Practice. That’s how I want to live life. By putting forth my best practice.
That’s kind of how my life is right now. I’m living on the fast track.
Have you ever noticed when God says yes, He moves fast. Take parting the Red Sea for example. Except for me I have recently received a new job. A new husband. And I’m well on my way to a new house. So to speak. We’re remodeling the old one. And now a new master’s program has just begun. I am certainly experiencing God’s favor! And fast! All within this last month.
I wasn’t so sure about this class in the beginning. Being math and all. It’s not my strong point. And it is graduate level. I have alot going on. I would have preferred starting with a language arts kind of class. That’s more my niche. For starters. But I didn’t have a choice. I received a grant for this class.
God doesn’t always give you what you want, but He’ll always give you just exactly what you need. I needed to strengthen my math skills not my writing skills. And boost my confidence in math since I would soon be teaching it. So here I was. Right where God wanted me.
The class is at Southern Nazarene University. And the first session ended in prayer.
As I drove off I said a little prayer to myself thanking God for the grant for this class at no charge to me, the awesome instructor I had just gotten to know teaching it, and His divine intervention in my life. For picking me up out of sinking sand and placing me on such an awesome path.
I’m beyond blessed. I’ve had my share of struggles in the past. But my life couldn’t be going much better than this. It’s everything I’ve dreamed of. Except it’s come to pass. It’s now my reality.
How about you?
Are you witnessing God acting fast in your life?
I pray you are. It’s an awesome thing.
Here’s to moving forward. On God’s path. Here’s to new things He’s doing for us. And here’s to math! My new favorite subject. You can count on it!
Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing. Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. Isaiah 43:16-21
Love and laughter,
