Hello.  For those of you who do not know, I am a high school math teacher by trade.  We have been at school doing inservice for the past 3 days.  In Christian love, I must say that most of what we do during this time is a huge waste of my time.  That being said, every year, I end the school year with a kind of "me" attitude.  I think about how good (or bad) of a year I have had.  Would I be doing this for another year?  The whole mindset is on myself.  Then when inservice rolls around, especially this year because of Common Core, you are constantly reminded that it is about the kids.  That is kind of how we are in our own walk with Christ.  I know Christ died for me.  I have accepted Him as my Savior.  I pray. I study.  But sometimes, because I am flesh, I start thinking about this thing being somehow about me.  It is about what I can get out of the deal.  In a way it is nice to be reminded that teaching is not about how crummy of a job I have.  Instead, it is about impacting the lives of a bunch of kids in a positive way.  In the same manner, when we get upset about our Sunday School classroom getting rearranged, a new youth pastor coming in, louder music, the preacher not preaching from KJV, or not singing enough hymns, maybe, just maybe that is God letting us know that we need to check ourselves.  See my Christian walk has very little to do with Rayden's comfort.  It is about God working through us to shake up this world and to illuminate the darkness.  I have as much trouble with this as anyone.  In fact, I bet I struggle with this more that most people.  Let us always reevaluate our walk with our God.  I love you all.  God bless.
