For a little bit of my story leading up to this point: last May I graduated college and I had no idea what was next. I picked up some shifts life guarding, got a regular nannying job, and committed to a year on part-time staff in a local ministry called Young Life. Yeah... juggling three part-time jobs was not the post-graduation lifestyle I dreamed of. Not glamorous but I was doing this with an end in sight, at the time. I actually thought my year with Young Life may lead into part time staff but this past January felt like it wasn't what I was being called into full-time.
At this point, I started praying hard-core about what's next. I really wanted to make a decision that was wise for me for this season of life...especially since I had recently been living in the poorest season of life ever. Seriously, I lived more frivolously in college than I did this past fall.....money was tight.
I had a feeling that I didn't need to strive to find something. Don't get me wrong, I still needed to work my butt off and be proactive (taking my resume, keeping my ear open, putting myself out there). BUT, I felt like it wasn't something I needed to stress/worry over and that I needed to just trust God for a door to open. Well of course one did because God is always faithful.
I heard about this job position as a case worker and immediately applied. After an interview I got a call two days later that I got the job. Could. Not. Believe. It. I really had just prayed for favor and tried to be myself as much as possible in the interview and it just dropped into my lap. First real interview ever & that was that.
Once I got hired there was a three week gap between my start hire and start date. One day they called me in to bring a copy of my degree and at that point informed me they were starting me out higher than they stated in the interview. Seriously, I got a raise before I even started!? Then...a few days into my job they told me they were switching my job completely to one I am even MORE excited about! Whattt?!
This is starting out good.
I am seriously so thankful for what God is doing in my life right now. It was just a few months ago that I was praying with a very heavy heart over and over again for God to give me breakthrough financially. Trust me, even in the hard times remember he is always faithful. He desires to care for his children and give them good gifts. We have a good dad y'all.
Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. But even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows. Matthew 10: 29-31
