See I place my words in your mouth!

Today I appoint you over nations

and over kingdoms,

To uproot and to tear down,

to destroy and to demolish,

to build and to plant.

I have many changes happening at the family care center where I work.

I will be getting a new classroom and a new co-teacher

and a new group of toddlers.

I am at once anxious and excited.

I am going to be building a new classroom

and my influence will be more evident.

To build and to plant.

But, new things are hard...

and I am also going to have to demolish and destroy.

And, I am going to have to discern...

what to demolish, what to rebuild, and what to tweak a little bit.

When I first started working at this center,

I thought my co-teacher and I would never have anything in common.

We are different in almost every outward way.

But, as it turned out, we are similar in many inward ways.

We made a really good team.

My new co-teacher and I are very different also.

There will be a learning curve while we figure one another out.

This time I have more experience

and I suspect I may be the one doing more of the leading.

Change can be hard...

but it is also challenging and exciting and uplifting!

  1. Prayers for your new adventure at work. There are days that even though retired now and looked forward to it, it does hit me that I will never have the adventure of a new job opportunity. When I read the scripture it reminds me that I tend to forget the words that God would place in my mouth at times and I need to use those in some situations. Thanks for sharing at Sunday Scripture Blessings.
