I didn't expect to be leaving teaching now but multiple doors closed one after another at the end of last year, due to my anxiety and depression, and I was not able to return. I have kept my faith that God was in control and knew what was going on.
From bad always comes good.
From the end of 2013, God has been working. He gave me a part-time job which helped me to overcome shyness and become more self-confident; He showed me a writing course I could do to improve my skills (I have a dream to be a published writer); He put me in a writer's group; He brought me a writing mentor; He has led me to meeting the chaplain at the local high school which is taking me to working with girls. None of this would have happened if I was back in the classroom this year.
Things are meant to happen, even if we do not understand them at the time.
I am looking forward to seeing where else God is going to take me.
