Life had me in a comfortable place. Going to the same place every day, working alongside the same people, doing many of the same tasks. And there is something that I love about that. It was routine, easy, familiar. Sure, there was the unforeseen at times, the last minute things, the unexpected. But for the most part, my heart was joined to those individuals. I miss them.
I never thought in a million years that I would join the ranks of the unemployed. But then again, I remember telling my children when their father first was laid off that we are all just a pay check away from unemployment. It doesn’t matter where you work or who you wok for. It happens.
It’s been two weeks and I am beginning to look over the mountain that’s looming in front of me. In this season, I must join my heart, my mind and my will to that of Christ. I must ask Him to show me His perfect plan for my life, and then give me the strength to walk it out. Because some days, most days, I don’t want to walk. I just want to sit, under a soft blanket, with a glass of Coke, a piece of chocolate and lots of T.V. and drown away my sorrows.
This is my reality. But it doesn’t have to define me. I may have joined the ranks of the unemployed, but it’s given me an even greater desire to join my heart with His. Lord Jesus, I give you my life. May I be one with You and may you reveal your prefect will. AMEN!
