I been slackin…. But I have a good reason this time
:drumroll: I am now a resident of Baltimore, MD!!!! :does dance:
So my husband and I are corps members for Teach for America and we’ll both be teaching Elementary School in just a few short weeks! Crazy right?
I’ve continuously just thought about how I got here, and I can honestly say I have no clue… But I DO know that I got here by the grace and plans of God and God alone. Everything going on in my life right now I never dreamed of, thought of, spoke… nada. Everyday is a big shock to me as to where I am and how I got here. To be able to say that I am going to have a full time job impacting the lives of students, receiving a salary in Baltimore, MD with my husband of almost two years is still mind blowing to me.
This time two years ago, I was heading back to graduate school, still planning on being an opera singer, while in the back of my mind knowing that something else was out there for me. Those few thoughts that something else was out there for me was simply the planting of seeds to get me to where I am now. All I had to do was take that step. But it wasn’t easy. I told my mom today that when I left graduate school, it was like jumping off of a cliff into a foggy area down below with a still, small voice saying “Just jump. I got you”… and that voice being God. It’s never easy doing it either. But when God has proved Himself so much to you in your life, you literally have no excuse when God simply asks you to Jump. He never forces you and ultimately leaves the choice in your hand. But when you’ve lived a life full of God simply taking GREAT care of you, it makes you want to jump… especially when it means becoming and doing all that you were created to be and do.
You capable of more than your present situation right now. Even if you don’t have a degree in it . YOU CAN DO IT!
Our world tells us that if we didn’t go to school for it, take a class in it, attend a seminar on it that we can’t do it. BUT I’m here to tell you that THAT is a LIE. If God has purposed you for it, you can do it. He will and has given you the grace and everything you need to move forward to be the BEST you He purposed you to be. But it’s not just for you, it’s for the others in this world you’re meant to touch and help to become their best selves as well.
I can’t tell you how excited I am to begin this school year to teach these amazing 1st graders not just math and science, but how to be their best selves. I’m excited to see what God has in store for me and my Mr. here in this city of Baltimore, MD. We’re ready to work and be all that God has created us to be!
Pray for us!
