The past couple of months I've been studying for the EC-6 Core Subjects test to start the process to become a certified teacher. I've been stressing over this test knowing that it is infamous for being taken multiple times in order to pass.
The days leading up to my test I was holding on to Psalm 34:4 "I sought the Lord and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears." The teacher I work with also happened to ask what our favorite verse was, so I told her Psalm 34, because I love the entire chapter. I have been fearful for the longest, not wanting to step out in faith for what the Lord has planned for me, but God has given me the courage and faith to trust that he will get me through. I prayed and surrendered the the test and my future career to the Lord. If he wasn't going to be in it, I didn't want any part of it.
I took my test last Friday, coming out discouraged and unsure of how I did. Today my coworker gave me this bracelet for teacher appreciation week. Right afterwards, I checked online for my scores. I was already preparing myself to see which subjects I would have to retake...BUT GOD. The Lord answered me! I PASSED all subjects! The bracelet was given to me at the perfect time. I'm still in disbelief. Thank you to all who prayed for me. All glory to God.
