7b, if you please

This is basically a continuation of my last post. I just felt it was already long enough!

So my thoughts regarding moving to Plano:

My family is a big draw. My hesitation comes with peers and a church to call home.

The church my parents attend, the church I grew up in, doesn’t have a large singles’ group. I would be starting from scratch. Visiting different churches, different Bible study classes. Being the new person all over again. That’s hard. I don’t know if I have the energy for that right now.

I’d love to teach in PISD though. It’d be fun to teach in the district I grew up in…maybe even one of the schools I attended. Or perhaps with a teacher I had. To give back to the community that helped to shape me into the teacher I am. So that is a draw, too.

But can I leave Bush? I have it good and I know it. Can I really gamble that?

My family of Paradigm is hard to leave. Though, having just stepped down from the leadership role, makes the timing already one of transition.

I just don’t know.

So I’ll pray. And I’ll ask for guidance. Though sometimes the Lord is not as clear as I’d like Him to be. Sometimes He knows He can work His will in our life in different situations and settings. Sometimes we can make the decision without His specificity.

Honestly, that’s what partly scares me.

  1. Oh, Alyssa...the selfish part of me wants to tell you, "don't move!" but I understand how you feel and will pray for you as you seek God's guidance. When you get back from Thanksgiving we need to get's been too long!
