I don't know what to think...

Saturday, September 21, 2013

...so I'm not going to think about it too much. Pray some instead.

I just got a call from the director of the Bible school where I taught some 15 years ago asking me if I could imagine coming back to teach in the spring 2014 semester. I won't go into details, but this is rather amazing when you consider the circumstances surrounding the end of my time there. I said yes...but the details will still need to be worked out. It would be a chance to teach in my field of study - missiology. Of course, this being a Bible school, it would also involve working in the office part-time. And maybe teach some music courses as well.

Like I say, this is so out-of-the-blue...but not really when you think of it...so I don't know what to think. Oh, I already said that!

In the meantime, I'm procrastinating on a project that you can see here:

This phone call has shocked me just enough that I might have to go work on decluttering just to keep my mind occupied and burn off some of this nervous energy!

    Sometimes live leads us to where we go. :) I teach the bible to some on a one to one basis,,,, this is how we do it, so that they all understand it,,,and have all their ?s answered. I've had 8 personal studies with people,,,and 5 of them have lead them to be baptized. WHAT A THRILL !!! So look back to where you were b4,,,if you enjoyed it, when it was very good,,,,, b4 things went warey. Did you enjoy it? What did you enjoy the most/least,,, improvements you can do etc. Also think about "if you are a believer in what it is ur saying to others". That's a large part also. If the answer is yes,,,,, then I hope you will enjoy it. We can't EVER stop learning and studying the bible enough !

    On the clean out,, I WISH I COULD DO THAT !! For I ADORE IT ! But, I did it when I moved out of ME last Sept,, than I collected quite a few things in CO, just to LEAVE THEM There !!! GRRR Still a sore spot with me,,,,for my "family" NO DOUBT is LOVIN using them,,, and/or selling things that I HAD BOUGHT ! I am NOT thrilled since they stole so much from me $$$ wise, but what GOES AROUND,, COMES AROUND !!! if they THINK that God was NOT watching,,,for they "CLAIM" to be "Very much so "CHristians" ,, he DOES SEE IT !!! If you steal,,you DO LOSE his favor, unless your sorry for it,, they are NOT !! they were ALL SMILES about this. SIGH and me? I LEARNED A HUGE LESSON !! U NEVER EVAH move in with family who are poor unless they are HONEST ! For eventually I'll prob have to move in with GD or her Mom,,, as my health continues to go downhill as much as I FIGHT IT !! Walking is now harder and harder to do. It'll only take ONE GOOD fall,,,and I KNOW they WILL INSIST !! As it is,, when GD see's me trying to walk,, SHE FREAKS OUT ! She was living w/me in thepast,,,and knows I "wobble" a lot.

    So on the clean out,,,,I can't do,,,I have not much yet. I wish you well. When I did have things,, my rule was "if it's NOT Used in the past yr,,,,,, OUT IT GOES !! Unless it was very expensive and I knew I"d really need it again. and of course being honest with myself on that ! LOL !!!

    What a cool way to get a job.. have them call you instead of painstakingly looking for one. Sounds like God opened that door for you. He must need you in place.

    Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Phil 4:6

    De-cluttering is good. On what country is the School where you will teach?

    I find decluttering to be something that can really free my mind for more important things. Reach into your heart and you'll know what to do. emoticon
