Personal Blog # 1
Well it was a long week, but by the grace of God I made it through. Each week I am going to write a personal blog about the happenings in my life. Today there isn't much to write about, but I do want to talk about a peronal lesson God is taking me through.
That lesson comes from the Bible. "Faith without works is dead." For so long I was thinking that as long as I believe in God, he would solve all my problems. Which is true however I had no works to show. I didn't tithe and I honestly wasn't helping people out to the extent that I could have. Not necessarily financially either. God blesses us with so many talents and things which can help your neighbors, friends, even strangers on the street. I thank God for waking up my spirit. A scripture says it is better to give than to receive. I firmly believe that. The joy of helping someone when you can is indescribable.
On another note. I received an email today from the director of the teaching program that I was in this summer. They really want me to teach at Excellence Charter school upon the completion of my undergrad career. I had a lot of fun and I learned a lot teaching 5th grade up in the BK. Career wise I am still undecided. I come from a family of teachers so I know the long hours and hard work that is required to teach our children.
