I’m a Teacher!

—Written by a teacher in Czech Republic—

I made it through the first two weeks of teaching!
This picture is of the “House Sorting Ceremony.” It’s just like Harry Potter for little kids! (Ok… maybe not just like Harry Potter–there’s no sorting hat.)

I’m really enjoying my students and the school. I wasn’t sure I really wanted to teach little kids, but I kind of fell into it (God knows the course of our lives so much better than we do, huh?) I can’t even describe how much of a blessing it’s been to work where I am!

God’s been teaching me so much about His heart lately. He’s woken me up in the middle of the night almost every night for the past two weeks with new aspects of His character. Tonight He woke me up teaching me about truly praising and worshiping Him. Then I had a dream of Him pointing me to Matthew 12. So, I got up and read it. I came across the same verse I had been pondering on all day, except it was in a different place in the Bible! G-d is so good!
“I want you to show mercy, not offer sacrifices”
Matthew 12:7; Hosea 6:6
I don’t need to feel guilty because I’m not “doing enough” for God’s kingdom here. My job is not to “save the world.” (These quotes are my own thoughts of inadequacy) I’m just to honor God, obey Him, and love Him. He’ll lead me to the people that need to hear His word and the places where I should go. I need to be less worried about the sacrifices and the works, and more focused on seeking after Him first.

Things are definitely starting to pick up and I’m meeting new people-Czech, American, Hungarian, etc.! I know I’ve been here over a month, but it feels like just a blink of an eye!
Winter’s around the corner, so keep me in your prayers! I’m just a Georgia Peach!
