New Perspectives

Only God can take something mundane and turn it into a breath of fresh air.

I've been working at the same office for 4 years and 5 months now. It's been my one and only real, full-time, salary job in my major since I graduated college. I made a deal with myself that after working here 3 years, and after living in the same city for 3 years, and if I hadn't gotten married, then I would move on to something else. Well, those 3 years came, and went, and I stayed.  In my fourth year here I got married.  And after my fourth year here, my perspective is starting to change.  I'm beginning to understand my strengths in my job. I'm beginning to find joy in what I do. And I'm beginning to accept that I might actually be in the right career...BEGINNING to accept. I'm not all the way there yet, but I'm headed in the right direction. It is such a joyful feeling and a burden lifted to not have to worry about my career, my job, finding a plan B, etc.  Right now, I feel as if I'm where God wants me, and tomorrow if He wants me somewhere else then He will help make that happen. I'm not worried right now. I'm not fretting. :)

Thank you Lord for presently changing my perspective on my job and my life. I'm learning to depend on you, and not me. Please continue to be patient with me, and in turn I choose to be patient to those around me who are also struggling with how You fit into their lives, and Your plans for their lives. Thank you for restoring joy to my job, and for your everlasting Hope. You are worthy to be praised!

And lastly, thank you Lord for Christian men who run the office I work in.  Their leadership points directly to you, and bless them and their families for their boldness as Christians in the workplace.  I am greatly blessed to work under them.
