Well, that might sound a little more promising than it actually is. Today’s simply the day I will write my first blog on wordpress. Not as exciting as, for example, today’s the day I start a new job, or move, or get married. I mention those things to give you a little insight to me. Those are the things I want, my desires.
With that said, I’ve been thinking about what to write about for my first blog. Let’s start with a little about my journey.
I need a job and I need a place to live. They are not only my desires but also my necessities. Society’s standards say that I need the job first. The economy says this is hard. And God says wait a minute, it will come. So I sit, I wait and I search….
It’s all too uncommon to, we’ll say, disrupt, society’s standards and try things with God. Asking Him before making a move, waiting to hear an answer and then making a move. This path is 1) not easy but 2) completely exhilarating, comforting and peaceful!
That’s not to say I’m just sitting around thinking God is going to drop something in my lap while I watch TV all day or escape to the beach. I need to put in some effort on my part. I am actively searching for a job, talking with people, asking about opportunities and praying that God opens the right doors and gives me the wisdom to know the wrong ones.
You should probably know a bit about how I got here. I had a career in TV News but was laid off over a year ago. While searching for another job I decided I was done with TV and during the last year and few months I have been searching within me and with God what next steps would be best for me and I feel like He is orchestrating everything that’s happening now. I stopped taking my unemployment checks and packed up my stuff to move almost two months ago. Not because I thought it would be easy, but because I believe God is leading me to the best He has for me here.
With that, I may be in a somewhat uncomfortable position right now…technically I’m homeless, I don’t have a job, I just turned 30, I’m single and my poor dog is so confused about our living situation that she doesn’t want to leave my side. And while I want all those things to change and I’m trusting God for that (which is hard sometimes), I also know I’m right on track…it doesn’t look like a white picket fenced life but God says, “don’t worry I got you,”
It’s not always easy but it’s happy.
