Restoration

In definition by Google, means the return of a hereditary monarch to a throne, a head of state to government or a regime to power.

In my case, it is simply, to return – to return to duty after one school year of leave of absence without pay.

I never thought that it is what I have to do. I have always believed that it was really clear to me – resignation & start a business.

Well, I was told that I missed some instructions from God. None of the business I tried to start succeeded. I thought it is because God was testing me since I read about having to step out of faith which I believed was the word for me when I was continuously praying about the step I had taken. That it is going to be difficult & a time of testing if I will continue to trust God. Then I have read about James 1:2-4 “Consider it pure joy my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish it’s work so that you may be mature & complete, not lacking anything”.

Everything was positive. I would always read about something encouraging from the Bible & other devotional materials. I also thank God for sustaining me the whole year.

On the month of February, I started praying again asking God for confirmation. I thought I received it but another member in my small group said otherwise so I prayed again. Then I read about Jesus’ reinstatement of Peter. I believe that’s it. So on first Tuesday of March I went to school & talk with my Principal. I worked on the papers I needed, asking God at the same time to change my heart because I really wanted to do something else already but then, teaching is a gift. Maybe God wanted me to use it to serve my purpose.
