One day at a time. . .

It's pretty hard to describe my current feelings. . . You see I have never been a teacher before (other than a Sabbath School teacher) and I have never gone to an elementary school. Now I have the responsibility of teaching English to four classes of students. I don't know what they know already, and each class has students that are at different levels. As you can imagine, I don't have a curriculum that really fits this situation so I get to come up with what I am going to teach each day. I have to say, though, I am not the one producing these classes. I have a very faithful Friend who is by my side even now. It turned out that I had made lesson plans for the first week of classes. Yesterday was the first day of classes, and I covered my whole week's worth of material in each class. The Lord helped me yesterday to come up with a lesson plan for today. We'll see how things turn out. . .  This has been a wonderful lesson in trusting the Lord. I would like to have lesson plans made at least a week ahead of time, but if making them the day before is what my character needs, I'm willing to trust that He'll take care of the future. I'm not worrying about tomorrow, or the rest of the school year for that matter. He promised He would give me what I need today, and I know He will never let me down.

Thank you for your prayers, my friends. They have not been in vain.
