God’s Plan not Mine

Exodus 14:14 ‘The Lord will fight for you, and you just stay calm.’

In my prayers lately, I would pray and ask for guidance from God, His way, not mine. I would ask Him to show me what are His plans for me because it seems that no matter how hard I try I couldn’t get what I wanted. I believed that I wanted to use up my degree which I spent 3 years working very hard for in the HR sector. Now, it’s not that I won’t be using it, I will be using it in a different way. I will be using it in teaching – Business Studies. I will be working as a teaching intern even though I trained years ago as a teacher in Jamaica. This way I can earn and learn!!

I decided to just allow God to work in my life the way he wants instead of me pushing and going against His will, which never works out. Is teaching my calling? I am not certain, however, I can tell you that this is the first time in many years that I feel like I could teach. All those years I tried by myself and it didn’t work out, I allowed God to take control and yes here we go!!

My level of belief has been reborn!!! I read the books of the old testament and quarrel with the children of Isreal about their stubbornness, what a hypocrite!! I was as stubborn as a mule and decided to live my life my way. Did it work? No! I have learned my lesson. God use me – that’s my prayer.

I will need Him more now than ever and I am ever reliant on His guidance and on His mercies.
