Accepted new job; adventure lies ahead
After I resigned my teaching position in October, I allowed myself a week to watch television and mope. Then I started watching job sites, recording possible options on a spreadsheet, and submitting applications. I also began learning new software that might be relevant to future jobs. For the first time since the new school year had started-up, I made blogging a habit again. Soon not only did the aches and pains in my body start to decrease, but I also received requests for several interviews.
Fears that I might end up searching for months for employment began to fade. Better yet, starting December 5, I will be working as a part-time administrative assistant at Bethany Christian Church. Part of my duties will be clerical, but I’ll also use my writing and designing skills to create their publications.
Thanks to my family and friends who supported me both through my decision to resign my teaching position and in my search for a new job. Praise to God, too, who has seen me through a rough year.
Last January, through a Casting Crowns concert, God told me that it was time for me to “more than just survive”. It was time to “thrive”. I have to admit though that more than once over the past year I’ve felt as if my life were falling apart. However, again through the lyrics of a Casting Crowns song, God assured that my life was “falling into place”.
What lays ahead besides my new job, we have no idea. God has been working on my life telling me to give Him control. So all I know about the future is that I plan to allow myself time to explore. I’ve picked out some potential marketing classes to take and applied to some part-time jobs. Will I end up working with animals? Or maybe tutoring students in writing? I don’t know. All I know is adventure lies ahead and I’ve got my family, friends, and God to support me.
