PostSubject: Work based prayers   Mon Apr 25, 2016 6:31 am

I am considering some changes in employment.  First of all, I work with special needs kids at my high school.  However, a position with more money being the ISS (in school suspension) teacher has opened up.  I am praying about whether I need to even apply for this position.  It would mean more money, but I would have the kids that are always misbehaving.  That could be nerve-racking and stressful.  However, my classroom is moving towards being very low functioning and I'll be an over glorified baby sitter.  I want to know that what I do means something, you know?

Also, I am sending my resume today for a new church position.  I've been at my current church as youth pastor for almost 7 years.  In the past year and a half, we have lost a lot of middle aged folks, almost all of our young adults, and most of my youth.  Some of the youth have graduated out of the program.  But, with that loss of parental aged, the kids have stopped coming.  Our church has dropped from around the 120 mark down to around 85 total attending.  You may have 25 people under the age of 50 in our worship services and most of those are in their upper 40s.  Our church, in my opinion, is about to cross that threshold of dying as we will only exist for the old folks.

So, I am praying about direction big time.  I need the Lord to show me what to do.  Please pray!  Thanks!!!

Praying here. As someone who looked for five years, I hope that God opens the door he wants for you quickly.

Is there more news about your work situation?
Or have you heard from the church?

I hope you keep us posted.

I decided to not put in for the job at school and remain in what I am currently doing.  If I took the other job, I would be responsible for the kids in ISS (in school suspension).  The current teacher has been physically threatened and one kid even made threats about shooting up the school and the new principal did not back her or do anything.  With that in mind, they can keep the job.  I can handle my special needs kids just fine.

I heard back just a moment ago from the other church.  They are looking at someone else right now.  If that doesn't work for them, then they will be interviewing me.  So, if God wants me to have this, He will have to make it available.
