As a teacher, there are things that I see that could be done to improve education. It is rewarding to have conversations with other teachers about ways we can improve education for all of our students. Unfortunately, even some of the simplest changes can seem to take more time than necessary. In a recent conversation, a colleague summed up this feeling by saying that "you have to be prepared for the long haul if you want to make changes in education."
There may be many areas in our lives or in the world where we see the need for change. Some changes may seem simple and some may appear too large to tackle. No matter what the situation, if we see a need for change, we can call on God and allow Him to guide and direct us. As we call on God, we need to remember that some challenges take time. God has a purpose for His timing and we need to remain patient, focused, and controlled as we follow His plans. Whether change comes quickly or after a "long haul," if we are waiting on God's timing, we can be sure that the time will be right!
Trust in God's timing and wait on Him as you prepare for change!
Thank You for Your presence and guidance in my life. Help me to always be patient and waiting for Your perfect timing. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
