2 Corinthians 12:9-10

New International Version (NIV)

9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

Another Door Opens

"God is good all the time----All the time God is good".

 Author: Unknown 

Finding a new school for our kids was a big issue for us this year. We looked at so many schools and programs, and nothing seemed to strike us as the "this one's it". We researched, went on interviews, made numerous phone calls. All of our options sounded good, they just didn't feel right. I knew God would provide, I just got impatient not knowing.

We went on an interview at this one school, everything seemed great, they said everything we wanted to hear. Everything looked perfect, but there was just that feeling in my gut that my kids are just not supposed to be here. My husband felt the same as me. It was hard for me because this certain place just seemed like the best choice out of all of our options. It had a good location, it was well established, nice teachers. But I just couldn't shake the feeling, as if Someone else was leading me in a different direction. But what direction?? This was the only option that made sense, how could it be wrong? 

We even paid the registration fees for the kids, even with doubt in our mind. We didn't see any other option.

The day after we paid the registration fee, our pastors wife spoke to my husband and said that she would be interested in and willing to start a little homeschool program in our church. It was that moment that I knew why nothing seemed to be the right place. My husband called the other school, told them our situation and they gladly gave us our money back. We were short on time but God worked out all of the details.

My kids started school this year at our church. There are only three kids, but we know that it will stay open as long as God wants it there. The beginning has been challenging and the road a bit bumpy, but we keep pressing on. We are hoping that this is the start of something bigger, because I know that God always provides. And should it only last this year, I know that God just something better in mind.

This journey has been such a walk in faith, because even though I said that I put it in God's hands, I was just too impatient to really see.

Revelation 3:8 (NKJV)

“I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it;[a] for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name.
