What Appears Crooked God Makes It Straight

Friday wasn’t a good day for me. My internet wasn’t working in my office, students didn’t come to my classes’s zoom meeting, a store in the state messed up our school’s order, and I was late to get my kid in school and I drove to west Alabama instead of East Georgia for a medical treatment.

To complement the former, I came home last night and my kid was screaming non stop for about an hour and a half. What a day, don’t you think? Of course I had a headache and was exhausted. I slept well but woke up this morning dehydrated, tired and dizzy with a headache.

Then… I drank a glass of water, checked my email and guess what? I got an invitation to register and potentially becoming an Apple Educator. Wait, what??? I got the link to start the process which is a pre-requisite to becoming an Apple Distinguished Educator. Doing training and taking tests were not my plan for this morning…

God’s had other plans for me, after yesterday’s turmoil. God has a great sense of humor and He fulfills His plans for us, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 39:11.

I completed the training, which was secrecies to me for the most part. Now, I’m a Certified Apple Educator. How do you explain that? To me, it’s God working for whatever purpose He has for me for His glory. What do you think? Coincidence? Not to me.

In faith, I wait to what is to come patiently. After all, this is the only way to live; As we learn from Ecclesiastes 3, “There’s a time for everything under the sun.”

Blessings to you.

  1. Oh the plans that God has for us that we never even dream about. I praise God that he sees abilities in us that we do not and nurtures them to benefit His Kingdom.
