Man says NO; God says ABSOLUTELY!

Back in March I contacted an old friend who already lived in Atlanta. I was still living in Florida and trying to get advice about the best way to find teaching gigs in the A. I really wanted to teach in Fulton County. As a matter of fact, I was dead set on ONLY teaching in Fulton County. Over time, I ended up applying to ALL the local counties in Georgia. Anyway, back to this conversation. I asked my friend for advice, and her only advice was this:

” No offense, but unless you have a special certification, you WONT be teaching in Fulton County next year.”

I remember laughing at her statement and telling my best friend, ” I am going to trust MY GOD, and not what someone tells me.” I wasn’t discouraged, I wasn’t put off… I was determined. I was going to do anything it took to teach in Fulton County to prove how amazing God was… and that’s what my prayers were about for a while.

I forgot about those prayers until today, when the Fulton County HR office called me. I will be signing my contract tomorrow morning and all I can say is…

I am a 32 year old teacher in Georgia, originally from Ohio (Go Buckeyes!). I am also a singer and I recently taught myself how to play guitar. For fun, I enjoy reading and lots of Netflix binges, which is my American right! I have also been known to cycle, run half marathons, and do just about whatever I set my mind to. A charming shepherd-mix dog named Kingsley lives with me and keeps me laughing at his antics at every turn. I am learning how to love the life I live with each passing day. Sometimes it's easy...other times, I write about it.

  1. That is a beautiful story. Congrats on getting the job! On that note I will say what God wants for you no one can get in the way. Don’t fault or be angry with your friend for saying that because it was the devil talking through her. If she was your friend before than she still is and that is how the devil thought he could bring you down. That’s why we should pray for people who try to bring us down because the devil is using them for his own stuff. Pray for her because someone was praying for you to get to where you are.
