When I first began to teach in the special program for moms that I teach in, it was mostly because no one else would take the spot in a school that was on the far outskirts of my city. I saw an internal email that someone was needed to teach in that school. I offered to teach it and ended up having the position.
I understand why I was overlooked. I do not have children. I am a single man. I did not fit the profile of someone who teaches in such a program.
God opens doors.
Ten years later- I have helped eight former assistants to become lead instructors whether for a few quarters or continually.
This week I will be part of a small group to make some decisions about our program.
The reason I am sharing this is because God can make a way when there seems to be no way. God can open doors for us even when we are overlooked.
I did not arrive at this point easily. There were obstacles along the way. It required me to grow as a teacher along the way too. When God opens a door for us. he does not necessarily look for the most qualified in the beginning, but he will give us opportunities to become qualified.
Whatever our situation is, we should never overlook God’s ability to help us, guide us, and provide for us when we are overlooked.
God never overlooks his children. 🙂
