WOOT! I had an amazing first day at work. I love my job. It suits me perfectly. God designed this job perfectly for me. Whenever I walk into that building I feel complete peace and complete confidence.
This morning was my Women's Bible Study and I was really tired and did not want to God, but I knew God wanted me to go. I could not come up with a good reason to stay home, so I went. I am so happy I did. In the first 5 minutes of being there I knew why God wanted me there. The devotion was about the story of the talents. If you are not familiar with this story it can be found in the Bible in Matthew 25:14-28.
Over the course of this week, I have been going over my small group study materials daily and it has been about temptations. Then my verse for today pretty much snapped this into perspective to me. 1 Corinthians 10:13 "There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man."
I took this weekend off, just to enjoy the news (see my last blog entry) and relax. It was a great weekend! I worked on Saturday but after that it was time to relax and just enjoy life. We went to an arts event, which was awesome. Walter even got to exercise some of his acting ability and had the whole place in stitches. I honestly laughed so hard at one point I almost fell off my chair. I wish I had gotten it on video, I would have totally posted it on YouTube.
What a journey my looking for work has been. Right from the beginning I prayed that God would lead me to the right job. I looked through classifieds for 2 hours and God stopped me when I found one that was in ministry. I really sensed that God wanted me to have a job in ministry and here was a job in ministry amongst all the other ads - Miracle #1.. I then looked at the date it was posted and I really started to wonder if I was just tired and wanted to stop or if it was God, because the date it was posted was in July. The more I prayed about it though, the more that God gave me peace.
Join me on my journey through life's joys and difficulties.
