Prayers Needed

Okay, first I have decided that I want to start every post with "Okay." I don't care if people judge me.

Here's why I need prayers. I am applying for my first teaching position for this fall. Now, I know that I am not certified (yet), but in certain school districts you can be hired under a temporary certificate if you already possess a bachelor's degree and are currently enrolled in school pursuing a master's in education. Other than paying daycare for two children, I really feel that this is what my family needs. Here is my problem: I don't know if it is God's plan or mine. I hope both.

What to pray: If this is God's will, I will find the right teaching job. That is, a good school with a great principal, a great staff, and a great class. Please pray that God will give me the wisdom to know when a great offer has come along, and to recognize what is His plan.

I know that I can be hired in a particular school district because they hired one girl without her even pursuing teaching certification. But I feel like that county would be rough. Now, it might be okay just to give me some experience and to make me appreciate a better school when I get there. Gas prices must be considered, so it will have to be a nearby school district. I am mailing out my application and resume today, so thanks for your prayers.
