No, I’m not getting married. I did that almost 21 years ago and see no reason to do it again. But I have been doing a happy dance for over a week.
So, what is happening? I am starting a new job today in a new office. But it’s the same company I’ve been with for almost 4 years. And the same office I worked all last summer. I will be in a different position within a different department which falls under a different group within the same corporation. So, although I am familiar with corporate policy, the ins and outs of the office, and all of the people I will be working with, there is new software to learn, new procedures to become familiar with, and new responsibilities.
So I am excited for an answered prayer with this new job, but still a little nervous as we typically are with any new venture. I feel good knowing that I have waited to follow God’s will, and that He has placed me in a familiar setting doing something I know I will enjoy, working with people I already love. Set hours, 4 day weeks, a raise, and no holidays makes it pretty sweet too! Having more time with my family and to put into our business is an awesome blessing.
In October, I was ready to leave my job and apply for any other opening I could find. But my husband, ever the practical one, pointed out to me that we are too old and broken down to live without health insurance. So I stayed and tried to wait on God. I had finally reached a point where I was at peace staying where I was or going wherever God would lead. Always a good place to see God go to work!
