I’m sitting at my computer, looking at colleges to apply as an adjunct professor for psychology…and I’m terrified…
I feel unqualified & inexperienced…
But, I know it is part of my calling, part of my desire, and teaching is something that makes me come alive…
Why do steps of faith leave us in such terror?
I have heard many times over since I was in high school, “you’d make a great teacher” & “I really see you teaching college/university”. Yet, when it comes to actually pulling the trigger, I find myself riddled with doubt and questions:
- Who thought this would be a good idea?
- Why do I feel like I can do this?
- Is this really what God has called me to?
- Were all those people just lying to me/placating me?
- Will God really equip me if He opens the door for me?
The list goes on and on.
However, even in the midst of questions and doubt, I know this is a part of my journey. And, everyone starts somewhere.
For me, it may be online classes at a university 2 hours away; or two nights a week at the community college right down the high way.
Either way, I have to get my start somewhere.
It starts with a step of faith – and trusting that on the other side of that step of faith, God has a place for my foot to get planted to launch my next step of faith.
