The Very Last Day

Today is the day.. Today is the day that I leave this season of life and move to the next! I can barely believe it myself.  I'm sitting here thinking about the very aspect of moving to a new season, and it overwhelms me.  Not in a bad way, but a way that reminds me of the faithfulness of my God. 

I am reminded of the wonderful women in the Bible who were in places of waiting - waiting on God.  I am reminded of Ruth who lost her husband and moved away from her family; who obediently served Naomi.  She didn't know what God had planned for her, but she was obedient through it all.  She went into the fields, pulled her skirt up, and started getting the barley.  She was a hard worker who was rewarded for her diligence despite the circumstances. And I sigh.  I can't say that I've been completly obedient during these times of waiting for the next season.  I have wrestled something serious.. more serious than Ric Flair. Gosh!

Exactly 3 years ago, I graduated from seminary and assumed my job would  come and my knight would come too [maybe not so much a knight.. but my really cute fella].  I thought I would automatically receive this awesome job and put my diploma on the wall and have cute office accessories.  But I have had some crazy small jobs since then - waitress, cafeteria cash register lady, insurance office assistant, courier and part time teller.  Random I tell ya.  But I am thankful that God has brought me through all of that .. to this.  He is good yall! That's all I can say.  He hasn't left me... Thankful.

Some office notes I found around my desk as I was cleaning out:
Deuteronomy 12:8 - Jesus is our inheritance and resting place.
CHOSEN - We are chosen by God.
Obedience is life - Freeing life.  Life is to be lived in reckless abandonment to His will.
