Today’s post is a little late because I was waiting on some big news before blogging today.
Do you want to hear an amazing story? Okay, good.
On Sunday night last week, I sent my resume to a few different office and writing jobs. I’d been wanting to applying for some kind of job for a while now. Blogging and Mary Kay are fun, but it’s just not really a “job” to me. I knew I wanted something else outside the house, but I wasn’t really sure what. Not thinking I’d hear from any of them any time soon, two company’s called me back Monday morning. By Monday afternoon, I had an interview set up for Tuesday.
Tuesday, I go in for the interview (for varies temp office job positions). But after talking for a while, the woman interviewing me asks if I’d be interested in a full-time permanent position with their company. I said I wasn’t sure, as I was really looking for something part-time so I could balance blogging/Mary Kay too. But I said I’d be willing to hear about the position anyway.
They called me in for a second interview for the position of admin assistant and offered me the job on the spot.
Can I just tell you that this is so not my life right now? This does not happen to me. Ever. Except… it did. This week. Carrying on…
I really wasn’t sure if I wanted the position, though. I was confused about a lot of things, and all the sudden going from not working a whole lot to a 40 hour a week job? Bonkers if you ask me.
This morning, I was still playing phone tag with one of the managers asking questions about the position, trying to gauge if it really was right for me. While waiting to hear back, I went to my favorite spot to walk with Beans and took a stroll in the rain.
Coincidentally, this week has been the real start of the colors changing in my area. Everywhere I’ve gone this week has looked different because of the changing foliage.
I think it’s going to be a new mantra for my life now.
While walking along the path, I just stopped right here and looked.
And I had to wonder Is this God’s path for me? This is what I’ve been wondering all along, this whole week through. I’ve heard whispers of both yes and no. But mostly, I’ve heard to go with the flow. And more striking than anything, I haven’t really been afraid.
I will say I had a minor break down about so much change at once for about an hour. But other than that, I am excited, interested, willing.
Not coincidentally, my devotional today read:
“For we are God’s [own] handiwork, recreated in Christ Jesus, that we may do those good works which God predestined for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live].” – Ephesians 2:10
They called me back.
I accepted the job.
I start on Monday.
I am trusting His plan.
