To work, or not to work?

Heavy on my heart has been my job situation.  This week I plan to pursue full time work even further by visiting some school principals.  But,  at the same time I still question if this is really what God wants for me right now.  I have a peace about going back into the classroom, but understand that this year in particular will be hard for my kiddos.  Nathan will be in third grade which is a HUGE transition, and Mari Morgan will be in school all day long every day which she has never done before.  This concerns me.  A dear friend told me yesterday, "Paige, don't rush it, you have plenty of time to teach".  I am so confused.  But, I do know that God is not a God of confusion.  He is teaching me to wait on Him.  This morning I read a passage of scripture that is very familiar to me, but spoke to me in a different way.  Matthew 6:33-34 says, "But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.  Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow for tomorrow will be anxious for itself.  Sufficient for the day is its own trouble."  I felt God whisper to me.  He wants me to enjoy each day.  Look for ways to minister to others, and enjoy my family.  Take it one day at a time, which is extremely HARD for me.  Trust Him to work out every detail of my life.  He knows what's best- not me!  I thank God for this refreshing time this morning.  Now, I'm off to ENJOY my day- worry free!      


  1. paige!!

    i'll be praying for you!! i know that is a tough decision to make. i'll ask the Lord to make His will concerning your job very clear to you! hope ya'll are doing well!!

  2. There were many years my heart wanted to be home with/for my child and I could not. She grew up so quickly and I missed so much. With this second chance at motherhood I've been given, I know that I know that my place for this season of my life is to be in the home for my family -- husband, child, grandchildren, parents, in-laws, etc.

    God will give you the peace you desire as you and your husband together seek His will for your family.
