Betty thank you so much!
I will be honest, it has been a learning process. I started teaching Sunday school this past September, then within a month and a half I became one of my mentally challenged students advocate. There are several other of my students who have become very found of me and I know God has a plan for this. All of my students are adult mentally challenged people. Let me put it this way, they call me a lot. I am happy that they have become a part of my life, but I have 8 students and half of them basically seem more like my kids than my students because we have become so close.
God is showing me the way and teaching how to help people and when to say no. I never had a problem saying no to people before, but what can I say, I feel I need to help my students. Some of them have barely anyone who loves them, or cares for them. How sad is that?
But there has always been an order in my life and God comes even before my husband, as rightfully so. Thank you for your reminder though.
So many people have told me about not making the mistake of putting my family behind my ministry, I realized several months ago God was trying to plant that message firmly in my head.
