“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding;
Proverbs 3:5 NKJV
This one of my favorite verses. I have always had a desire to travel and see the world. Being a teacher and single parent makes that a little complicated. Credit card debt, personal loan debt, and don’t get me started on student loan debt…..also complicates my desire.
Then one day I saw teachers happy, smiling and traveling. I needed to know more. How is this possible? Can I do the same as a single parent? I began my research.
I can go teach overseas! Let me tell you I went on a roller coaster of emotions. Facebook became my friend and enemy as I began to join groups of people who are already teaching or living overseas. There are plenty of positive and negative experiences to drive a person insane. I was scared…how do I leave my family and take my child away overseas? Is the opportunity worth it? Can I survive? I’ve never flown am I crazy.
Then I went to God in prayer.
I wanted to do His will for my life. I cannot afford for my desire to go overseas be a mistake and I end up miserable with a child looking at me wondering what has mommy done to us?
Finally in January 2016 I started applying. I didn’t hit submit until a month later.
I researched the UAE so much and so hard I felt like an expert. Then I got all these hits for schools in Kuwait then fear gripped me again.
Kuwiat? Are you crazy? I didn’t research Kuwait. I do not know nobody going to Kuwait. I’m not in any groups for Kuwait. Jesus what are doing. I took a deep breath. I had five interviews in a week. Only one in the UAE. ONE flipping school in the UAE.! Fear, anxiety, confusion….prayer time I needed guidance and I needed peace.
I trust God will guide me to where I need to be and all will work out in accordance to His will.
I wait patiently for an offer. Well as patiently as I can.
