“May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us;
establish the work of our hands for us—
yes, establish the work of our hands.”
Every morning that I substitute teach, I lift up a prayer for God’s favor on me to do the job well. And this week, He answered me in a big way. With a school evacuation due to a gas leak and other unexpected situations with kids, I needed an extra measure of wisdom, flexibility and compassion. Looking back over the last few days, I see that His favor hasn’t been about making my days easier, but about making me more of a light for Him when challenges arise. I’ll take it!
