If someone were to ask me how I feel right now, that’s exactly what I would say.
Since before I graduated college back in December, I’ve been on the hunt for a job, as most of you know. I had my life planned out, as one would, full of expectations of finding a full time job and loving what you did.
Come January, I was still looking for full time employment, wondering what God’s plan was for my life. He opened many doors, I believe to test my faith. He showed me jobs that I was qualified to do, but in the end, He had a bigger plan.
I can now officially say that I’m the new enrollment counselor at my alma mater, Southern Adventist University. Now, I can’t say the job came out of left field, but it definitely came out of a direction I thought I never wanted to pursue.
One of my best friends in the world and my pastor, asked me once if my hobby (music) had gotten in the way of my passion (ministry). After much thought and prayer, I realized I had been distracted by what God was really calling me to do. And since then, He’s opened connections and doors I never thought would happen.
I am overwhelmed with joy that I have this new job–not just because it’s finally a full time job, but because I get to be living my purpose and what I know God created me to do. Following God has always been what I wanted to do with my life and I’m excited to see the opportunity He creates for me to show His love to those I come into contact with. Yes, I’m terrified of my new job, but I’m more excited, knowing that I’m following His will and that I also get to have some fun (I can already tell that I’m really going to enjoy the people that I work with!)
I look back on the past 8 or 9 months and see how waiting, trusting, doubting and the confusion–through it all I have been blessed. BLESSED y’all. God is good, even in the times where I couldn’t feel Him–He was there and I see that now.
I can’t stop talking about how blessed my life is and I know it’s only because of my love and trust in God. Thank you for all the congrats and especially the prayers throughout these months.
