So the newest new thing is....I have an official part-time job!!
You know when you are just cruising along in life and all seems to be going well and then the bottom drops out of something and it is completely outside of your control. Well I had that moment back in May the weekend of Mother's Day when I lost the job I had been working since February. It was one of the most unfun and heartbreaking things I have experienced since we moved back home to Bama. However it happened and we handled it the best way we knew how praying all the while that we did it in love and God was glorified to the best of our ability.
So since then I have been at home a little down but loving getting to be at home. However as much as I love getting to be at home, our financial plan to pay off debt and save for a house was abruptly interrupted just as we were getting started so we knew that I could not just continue to stay at home. Yet with our job at the church and our calling to be pastors we knew that I could not work full-time. So we began the search for what seemed to be the impossible to find perfect job, with great pay and perfect hours.
I began to seek the Lord and tell Him the things that we needed and desired and day by day I gave it over to him. Every time I found nothing listed on craigslist or the many job finding sites I was searching I would stop pray and give it to him. Now keep in mind that we were doing alright financially we were just making ends meet and I loved being at home, so that all helped in the not panicking and worrying department, trust me I am normally NOT that patient and easily redirected!
Then one day I got a call and had an interview. The interview went great but the job just wasn't right. The hours were long and the pay was uncertain and as much as we wanted it to work it just wasn't going to. We were both pretty bummed.
Then the search kicked into high gear and still came up empty.
Then over the 4th of July weekend I got a call from the great interview job and they had decided to change up the hours and wondered if I could come back in for a second meeting to discuss the new details to see if they would better fit for all of us! They now wanted me part-time! I went back in and almost immediately knew that God was working things out. I was allow to basically choose the hours that I wanted to work and they had increased the pay for my position and I found out that I would get to wear scrubs, which is something that I prayed for when I knew I was going in to talk about part-time hours. It was just one of those things that I felt would be such a cool and comfy bonus!!
I left the meeting and drove straight to hubby's work and could not wait to fill him in!! God had specifically answered our prayers. Perfect hours, great pay and the bonus of SCRUBS (that the company pays for)!!!
Less than an hour after the meeting I accepted the job and I am loving it. There is alot to remember but there is so much potential for human interaction which I desperately need and advancement and joy and there are so many benefits for me having this job!!
I was pretty much on my own today and it went great!! It was so busy and I had so much fun interacting with patients and learning to do the job on my own. I challenged myself to do as much as I could without asking questions and it went really well!!
I love the people I work with and the patients I get to see everyday and the scrubs I get to wear and the hours that I get to work!
God always comes through. I had some really great recovery time at home and now I have a really great job that is going to be more and more wonderful as the days go by!!
God is faithful. He just really is so thoughtful and loving and takes care of our needs and wants!
Thank you Lord. Thank you. May I bring you Glory in all I do!
