Today was a good day. actually one of the best days I have had in a while. I know that there are some people who don’t understand me getting into teaching, and honestly I don’t totally understand either, but this is what I do know. Teaching has renewed and actually given me a bigger passion for students than I have ever had before. It has given me more opportunities to impact students than I have had before. That’s kind of the part that make sense but this is how I know God is in it. I am working between doing church and school stuff 80 or more hours a week and even though I am tired when I go to bed, I wake up feeling better than I have in years, refreshed with plenty of energy. Secondly, I have been doing student ministry for almost my entire adult life, and I usually do not feel confident in new situations and work environments but I feel just as much at home in the classroom as I do in the church. I am a new teacher and I am sure I have made a lot of mistakes but I feel like I am improving already and though I’m not the best yet, I believe every day i am better than they day before. Through this God has answered two of my biggest prayers. The first is something I have been praying for a long time, my best friends are students and haVe been praying for just one adult male friend close to my age that I can have just a normal friendship with and I know that sounds strange but sometimes I need to be just Scott not Pastor Scott. The last reason I believe this is from God is because it allows us. My family, to plant some roots and stay put. We are financially able to save for a house to ensure our longevity.
