But what I am discovering in my present status is that being a “temp” is not so bad after all. I guess, I am seeing “temp” in a whole new light. Temporary means that nothing is constant, change lies ahead. Temporary gives you a chance to grow intellectually and as a person. Being a temp, keeps you on your toes, provides daily challenges. Through this temporary job, I am learning so much about curriculum development that will greatly increase my value as a teacher, if I make it back down that path one day. If I don’t, then this experience will not be wasted. I am learning the value of myself. My professional “status” does not weigh more than my values, beliefs, and actions.
I may not have a road map as to what lies ahead, but I am going to enjoy the journey right where I am at. Proverbs 16: 19 says, “In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps.” I am going to keep on marching the course that God has planned for me. So, if you find yourself starrring down the path of the unknown, simply trust that is where you are supposed to be.
Love in Christ,
