MONDAY, NOVEMBER 12TH Proverbs 3:5-6

by: Cindy Beckman

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.”

After college graduation, there were no teaching jobs to be found within a 50-mile radius of home and family.  So I went back to school to get an MA in history, something the principal said I needed to get a job at his school.  As graduation approached again, still no openings.  Finally, a position opened up when Arkansas reduced class sizes to 30, requiring more teachers.  I took a job teaching middle school children, even though my dream job was to teach high school students. Four months later, the teacher with whom I had interned quit his job at Christmas time and they needed someone who could step in.  In January 1986, I started my dream job teaching history and economics to high school students, a job I would love for 30 years until God called me to do something else.  I didn’t know what that would be, but He did!

Prayer:  Help us to trust You even though we can’t see what is around the corner. You’ve got this!  And you want the best for us!
