For He knows the plans....

As a Christian, I was always aware that God had big plans for me. However throughout my life, I experienced many closed doors and I started to wonder if God really did have big plans for me. As a child, I had the desire to be a teacher and work for a school. I finished my undergrad degree and applied for teachers college. Since it was my dream and I believe it was going to happen, I did not expect it when I didn’t get into teachers college. My world turned upside down and I began to ask God “Why? My dream was to be a teacher … so, why God?” Our God is so good and loving and He knows what He is doing. After accepting the fact that I wasn’t going to teachers college, I decided to study Early Childhood Education and God began to move. The first few months into my program, I was offered a job as an early childhood assistant where I did my first field placement. I worked there as I was finishing my program. I started to fall in love with teaching and working with younger children. As I finished my final placement I received a summer contract at my final placement as an Early Childhood Educator (ECE). After the summer contract, I received another contract extending my position to one year term. Then before the end of my one year contract, I was offered permanent full time position as a Preschool Teacher after only working there for a year and a half. I was never worried that I wouldn’t have a job in this field because God showed me His goodness and that this was His plan for me. God knew my desire to teach children and my need for a career. My plan didn’t go as planned in the way I wanted but His plan came to pass and it was better than what I had in my mind. He knew me better to place me in the area I would flourish the most. I am currently loving my job and studying to work with children with special needs. I never thought I’d be doing this but God had something so much better than I could ever imagine. My desire to help and teach children with special needs has grown immensely and God is opening doors for me in this area right now. He didn’t want me to just stop where I am but to keep going and rise above with excellence. Now I know, by experience, that He always have big plans for me. Throughout this journey, nothing compares to how I learned to trust Him. I’m so glad I learned to trust that His ways are better than my ways and His thoughts are higher than my thoughts (Isaiah 65:8-9). Things may not always go as you plan but it’s important to recognize that God has bigger and better things in store for you. He doesn’t want you to settle for less than His very best. “ But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness and all these things (desire of your heart) will be given to you” Matthew 6:33
