This past week I began subbing again. It is a very flexible job so I can always pick it up when we aren't traveling much. I had a class that was a handful this past week and I loved it. I loved being around children again and I loved watching them and listening to them. One little boy was telling me how cool it was that his daddy flys a black hawk. I was instantly proud that we live in a military town. Another little fellow was telling me how excited he was when his dad came home from Iraq. WOW!
So here's my lesson- one little girl was finished with her assignment and was granted permission to work on the computer in the back of the room. Another little boy was so interested in what she was doing and why she got special permission. I had to remind him to "just worry about himself" and remind him to complete his assignment. I immediately heard God whisper- You too Emily- Just worry about yourself. ugh. Not a lesson I wanted to learn, or a word I wanted to hear.
It was as if God was saying- Just worry about yourself. I'm trying to work in your life- You keep looking at everyone else and thinking they have all the luck, they get all the blessings. How could it be so easy for them you ask, but you don't know their full story. You don't know what is going on behind the scenes and you don't know MY PURPOSES. Just trust ME to do what I need to do in each and every life and don't lose faith in Me when things don't work out as you had planned....
Thank you Lord for that reminder!
