One of my greatest flaws...

One of my greatest flaws is getting excited about something prematurely. Thus was the case this week (yet again...sigh). I saw an opportunity to change teaching positions and become a volleyball coach. I thought the position was for the middle school/JV team, but instead it was for the high school team (which includes middle schoolers). That put things in a different light.

Since I have no experience as a head coach, I was obviously passed over. And I understand why. But...I love volleyball. I want to coach someday. But "someday" is not "today." Unfortunately. There would have been many logistics to work out with Hayden and our current work schedules, but I knew if that was where God wanted me, He would arrange the minute details.

Sometimes I don't know if teaching is the best job for me. Don't get me wrong...I love what I get to teach. I love trying to make English new and interesting. I love being able to love on students...especially those hurting ones. And those who need a listening ear or a hug or encouragement seem to seek me out. I've thought about girls' ministry; I don't know. For now, I feel sort of in a slump. Maybe a door will open right in front of me instead of me trying to barrel them down.

Sorry Jamie! I'm still praying for your decisions to come. God has something that is just right for you - maybe not "easy", but definitely just right. I've been struggling with getting excited prematurely as well...and God is teaching me patience through it all. But it's okay to be excited in general that God does have a plan and that He knows how amazing it is! THAT'S exciting.
