All Things New
During the academic year of 2021-22, I was serving on the Interim Lead Team (ILT) at CCS. This was the first year that all three of my children were attending Crossroads together, and I wanted to be more invested. However, as the months went by during the search for a head of school while simultaneously Covid-19 ran havoc to the school’s schedule and community, it was evident that CCS could not sustain at its current status. CCS needed an administrative team that could be proactive as well as reactive.
With a burdened heart, I prayed for a solution and approached my husband about applying to be interim head of school. I knew that my schedule would prevent my from doing the job full-time (I also own a small fitness business in Tyrone as well as being a wife and mother), but I felt God was leading me down this path to serve at Crossroads. This decision would not only affect me but the dynamics at home too. This was not just my decision; this was a family decision.
Well, long story short, here I am. I started in April, and I haven’t abandoned ship yet! Alongside some amazing ladies that serve Crossroads, we have made some major changes to the organizational structure and filled gaps within staff. We’re striving to make improvements in all procedures, modernize appropriately, and communicate effectively to our community.
But believe it or not, this post is not about me (although it has been up to this point!). All things are about God. He is our Creator, Provider, and Sovereign Ruler and all these attributes cannot be forgotten during this process.
He has consistently shown that He is in charge, and that through Him, by Him, and for His glory are we to accomplish anything.
Why is this so important to believe and understand? When there is this much change and uncertainty for the present–and the future–of an organization, this allows anxiety, doubt, and fear to creep in. But if we have faith that all things come together as God ordained it to be in his omniscient will, then we can have peace… peace in the decisions made for us, even when we do not understand the why.
So I draw near to the Father and pray that He will provide all that Crossroads needs for this upcoming academic year. And I pray for peace that no matter what happens, I will lean on Him for strength and wisdom and not on my own understanding.
