  2. When you know what you will be in life, then pursuit it without hesitation. When we hesitate, then what we thought we had, is taken for a while. We must recover what we had, and run like to wind to pursuit the goal we now have back.
    Determination, grit, and a, strong will help us accomplish things in life which we never through we were capable of doing. Dreams don’t have to be broken. I believe many are called, and few are chosen. I believe Putting Christ first is important, and that it is a gift of God that we receive. He makes the biggest difference in my life. I am so thankful that I found Him, and He showed me what to pursuit with my life. I finally did, and I am so glad.
    I taught school for over twenty, years. God’s grace brought me through those years. What I know, and my relation ship with Him is because He found me, and I responded. I believe it takes pure, discipline to walk with Him, and study. Life isn’t easy, and it isn’t given to us on a platter. Surely finding Him is an asset…it is for me.

    • Thank you for your insight. Also, thank you for teaching for over 20 years. I am sure you a made a difference in a lot of lives. I do believe having a relationship with Christ is a big game changer in life.

      • Thank you for your wonderful comment. How encouraging. I believe I was called to teach, like ministers are called to preach. The gift came to me when a friend and I were praying about what we would do with our lives. We thought God would tell us right then. She heard “nurse” and I hear “teach”. This is unusual, and it was the first time I remember God speaking to me. We worked out my calling. I went one year to Bible college, forgetting that I received a call to teach. In May of the next year, the Dean of Women sent me home knowing that she would not allow me back in Bible college. She said, “Go to a liberal Arts college, and become a teacher. You had a calling.”
        I did, and that is my story. God is mysterious, awesome, and faithful. I taught with faith, and 19 of the 20 years were to the poorest of the children, and in the poorest schools. I know I was called to help them reach their dreams. I often pray for my former students, and when I find one, we catch up on what they are, where they are, and what they have done with their lives. One recently found me and thanked me for being patient with him, and talking to him about how smart he was. He was smart. I hate to see a brain wasted. I kept on him until he learned to settle, mind, and do right. Years later he has come back to thank me, and give a quick hug. Smile.
