Phil 4:6,7

I was beginning to get anxious about this whole process, even though I told myself not to.  Then my husband reminded me of the bible scripture Philippians 4:6,7, “Do not be anxious over anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication along with thanksgiving, let your petitions be made known to God, and the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your mental powers…” This reminder helped me.  I began to think about all the things I would potentially miss out on if I did get the job.  My husband would not be staying with me and that will be the most difficult part.  So instead of being anxious because I am not a very patient person, I will instead enjoy my time with him, and spend more time with my family.  I will take pleasure in the small things that I will miss, or that I won’t if I don’t get the job.  In the meantime, I won’t be anxious or I may miss out on all the wonderful ways I could potentially spend the next 8 months here in the states for a very long time.

I've lived my whole life in Philadelphia. Daughter of a teacher, I later became one myself. When I heard about teaching overseas, I jumped feet first. Finally told yes, my two boys and I prepared for our new life abroad. Join us on our journey in Qatar!
