“While you were in your mother’s womb, living and moving and developing. God, like a skilled craftsman, was sculpting you.. “

“God gave you certain personality with certain abilities that would express in a certain way in this world through working a job.”

From Limited Life – Derwin Gray

…God LOVES you .. and you are always will be loved by Him…

I want to share this testimony with my River point family. Riverpoint have been praying for me and I have a wonderful report to share. I had major surgery last Sept. and I lost my job. They would not hold it. The doctor’s found a softball size cyst in my uterus and had to do an emergency hysterectomy. It was in a 2 week time period.

I was at my lowest – I lost my new job – had to have surgery – and I had no insurance. My now husband decided to move our wedding date up to Dec. 7. We got married but still struggled.

Since the beginning of the year, I have been looking for jobs but not really looking. I finally gave everything to God and knew he was going to put me where I belonged. I was about to give up.

Last Spring, I was in a facebook group. I saw this post from a lady that was asking about a bible study. I messaged her and invited her to attend. She didn’t know if she could because she had an infant. Luckily Riverpoint had child care. She attended and I ran over to introduce myself. She did not even go to Riverpoint. I just felt I had to get her there. Not only was she blessed by Tayna – we became good friends.

Well, last week – I received a FB message from my friend with a copy of a post on a facebook group asking about anyone being interested in working with a private school for a asst. teacher. I took a leap of faith and emailed her back – I left my contact info have NO idea what was going to come of it.. In the meanwhile – my friend was messaging the lady that posted on fb about me saying I would be perfect for the job. That evening I was talking to 2 middle men. My friend – the facebook lady – she was talking to the owner. ( I know – confusing) but long story short – all time I been praying for God to lead me where I was supposed to go. I had Riverpoint, KSBJ, Proverb31.org, countless facebook groups, and friends praying for God to put me in my place where I could use my gifts.

Funny thing is – I have been getting rejection letters from other jobs.. over and over.. especially the last couple of weeks. Talk about discouraging.

I just now left the school. I was in tears and shaking – I was hired on the spot and actually filled out the paperwork. I am scheduled for Aug. 11th. I get all the teacher holidays off – spring break – weekends off – and a salary that opened up our budget that we were struggling to most with. I just need to attend 3 classes to be certified and learn CPR and First Aid.

My heart always wanted to teach – I never went to college – have no training – but here I am – where God has picked me up – and placed me to show all His glory. He made me with gifts and talents – and I am sitting here in tears and chills … praising and thanking him.  I get to work with Pre-Schooler’s teaching them … putting an impression on their tiny lives..

I really have no other words to say – but to bow my head down to the King .. and praise Him – telling Him… I love Him and I knew He had a plan for me. It just took a little longer than I wanted – about 15 years.

 Thank you Jesus – …

 My Life Vision:

In my Limitless Life Study – I had to write out a Vision Statement for my Life

“To be strong and faithful with a passion to love others while offering grace”

I am going to use my gifts and talents God gave me. He had handpicked me to place me in my life – He knew while I was in my mom’s womb where He wanted me.. I just had to wait long enough to see that come through.

Philippians 4:6

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
