I recently quit my job of 16 years to take a part time job at my church. I have shared some of the backstory in previous posts, but I want to give you an update today. My hope is that I can inspire one of you to follow God's call on your life, even when it is scary. I felt stuck and unfulfilled in my job and had been praying for the last couple of years that God would show me where he wanted me. I knew I wanted to do something that allowed me to share my faith, and when my Pastor called several months ago with a proposal, I initially dismissed it, (because of the pay) but then I stopped to think that maybe this was my answered prayer. After much praying and crying and discussion and doubt and more praying, I decided I had to go for it! I have been at my new job for almost two months and I am settling in and loving it. I am not going to lie...the first couple of days were rough and full of self doubt, but everyone has been so encouraging that I got over it pretty quickly. We also have a preschool at my church and I love seeing all the little children every day and being able to witness to the families. I also get to witness people in the community who come in to use our Community Food Pantry. I have always been shy about sharing my testimony and talking to un-churched people about God, but it is starting to come more easily. I think this is further proof that this is my calling and where I need to be. I do not have all the answers, but I know God answers prayers. Just don't miss out on God's call by overlooking an opportunity.
