I want to stop volunteering as a teacher and get salary now.

Discussion in 'Prayer Request' started by Alive4Jesus, May 13, 2014.

  1. In God, whose word I praise— in God I trust and am not afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?

    Psalm 56:4
     
  2. Greetings @Alive4Jesus ,
    Don't sell yourself short here. Walk in Integrity and teach these children as your life depended on it. Yahwey Does see what you are doing.

    To answer your question I quoted ,
    Get in His Word Diligently and Pray His Word and Trust in His Word.
    The more time you spend doing this the more you will get to Know Him and Clearly Understand what it is He wants you to do.

    Teach as if Jesus is head of the school system and cast your cares unto Him. If you will trust them to Him He will begin to make Your Thoughts line up with His Will and your plans will be Established and will succeed.

    No matter what .... Remember Greater is He who is in You then he that is in all the confusion and poverty and this world.
    Blessings

  3. I really appreciate your reply. I beg your pardon to you all in case I wrote something wrong. of course I would like to dwell in Christ jesus. And although I am wondering a lot about what i have to do I fear of failing what he planned or shaped for me, my life.

    Sincerely I really need your prayers because I feel very weaked and chiefly when I am a victim while i was strong before (it's a sort of comparison of course) while I wasn't previously. Certainly the reason I became or feel very weak is my lack much time to meditate my Bible. I always trust my lord God and ask for His help every day. But, the fact hardly ever get money for my everyday needs put me in trouble.

    I belive eI've been forgiven today and will remain strong for His Glory.

    Next year and if God wills, I am going to teach the pupils who are in highest level (the last year in junior high school) and job will be harder. The hardship ask more job or effort when a teacher is in grade 9 or form 4 and I mustn't be late normally. of course my pupils love me and I love them the reason why I love teaching.

    I believe Jesus Christ to keep me stronga nd safe in Himself and for His own Glory.

    John 15:16-17
     
  4. Alive 4 Jesus i want to encoruage you. I dont know Gods plan for you specifically but if you havent been offered a job yet then just keep on doin what you doing.

    If you were offered a job right now would you take it? You would have to give up what you are doing and do that paid job instead. In my case, this is whats happening. I am not going to ever be paid for what I do teaching bible. But I may have to give it up to take a full time job. I really hate to choose, if it was my way i would only do four days work a week and still have time to do bible in schools.

    But then mum threatened me if I dont have a full time job..well, its not possible to stay at home forever doing volunteering work. The Lord will send someone else because those children do need bible. I have askd can I still do it and the job as welk they will make a concession but just one. I have tto give up eveything else even my own garden to do other peoples. I wont get to see any fruits of my labour as well strangers will get the reward. Sigh. Its tough.

    And if i dont like the job I dont know if I would continue doing that cos its contract work but volunteer you work you can leave it and come back to it. It does require a commitment but a paid job is more of a commitment.

    There are plenty of retired peoole who could teach, and do missions since they have the time and they get a pension so they dont have to worry. But i know its awful to not have income when you young(ish) and living with parents, only by the grace of God.

  5. If your basic needs like food and clothing and are met, you are ok. God provides us with everything we need, may not be what we want, but what we actually need.
    The bible says thats something to be thankful for. But if they are not, you may have to say to whoever your volunteering for look, I cannot keep doing this if I am not paid or dont have an income. If theres no bread on the table then you cant survive enough to get to teach each day..then yea.

    Sincerely I really need your prayers because I feel very weaked and chiefly when I am a victim while I was strong before (it's a sort of comparison of course) while I wasn't previously. I can't support any bad thought or mind on me. And I no more like to be congratulated for fear of boasting. Certainly the reason why I became or feel very weak is my lack of much time to meditate on my Bible. I always trust my lord God and ask for His help every day. But, the fact I hardly ever earn my own money by the sweat of my brow puts me in reflexion and my everyday needs put me in trouble.



    I am very glad to be back to Talk Jesus. For on facebook I was comforting others while I became weaker and though people aroung see me otherwise.


    Even Jesus got into prayer when he was weak in the night preceding His passion.

    I believe I've been forgiven today and will remain strong for His Glory.

    Next year and if God wills, I am going to teach the pupils who are in highest level (the last year in junior high school) and job will be harder. The hardship ask more job or effort when a teacher is in grade 9 or form 4 and I mustn't be late normally. of course my pupils (many of them) love me and I love them the reason why I love teaching.


    THAKS A LOT FOOR YOUR COMFORT!

  7. I think you got the point: in fact I would not like to give up teaching because I am meeting a lot of opportunities to teach the Gospel when submitting written tests in the classroom and even when giving some advice. Only a very few pupils understand English and they don't get interested in it. However i love teaching for I love children (of course I am unmarried and not engaged). In case I get better job I don't think accepting if I hardly ever no opportunity to share the Gospel.

    In conclusion, I am expecting from Yahweh's Willpower in Jesus Christ.

    Shalom!

  8. Dont worry about tomorrow just think about today. The thing I have learned to do is rejoice TODAY cos only God knows the future if we try and pry into it all the time we worry ourselves sick.

    May the Lord strenghten you and concentrate on doing the best for your children today. Are you reading the bible to them? Can you incorporate it into your lessons? Or just take some time before you go in to pray for them in private.

  9. Great cos I dont find teaching easy myself, i have had some training but am not naturally a teacher. If God has given you a word or vision of what his plan for you is, stick with that.

    I know for myself that He did not have teaching in mind for me but gardening as a lifes work. This was before I even got started in it, and several christians who didnt know each other gave me the same vision. I fell into teaching and was called to do it because they needed helpers and one teacher wasnt able to teach anymore. I love the oppurtnity to share the gospel and everyone who does teach can get to do this. But I know there are some things about teaching I am just no good at. Lol. If you truly have a gift, use it.
