So, I need ya'll to pray with me about some stuff.
I just made a rather important decision, and now I just need to be patient and trust God to work it out! As we all know, patience and waiting are not my strong points! Come to think of it, having things out of my hands is pretty nerve wracking for this control freak too! :) So now ya'll are wondering what I decided, huh?? :)
Well, I knew right off when I lost my job that God was preparing me to move. I just had no idea how that was going to work! I didn't know how I was going to afford living on my own, where I was going to move, what kind of job I was going to get, or even when I was going to move! Don't ya just love how God does that?? It's truly a step of faith without knowing what is next!
So, I've committed to this whole process and told God wherever He wanted me to be, I'll be. I'm still not quite sure when this move is taking place, but I'm pretty sure on the where. I'm also getting settled on the what I'm going to do. That's the hardest part for me, but I've really been praying about it, and looking at all the opportunities out there. The one thing that I kept coming back to required school. I have never wanted to go to college, but it appears more and more that that is the direction that God is leading right now.
So in the totally awesome way that God works, the field I'm interested in has just been named as one of the fastest growing with an expected 35% growth in the next 7 years, even with everything going on in the economy! Talk about job security!
So, today I started the process for picking an online school. I'm expecting all kinds of phone calls and information packages in the next little while.
Just pray that I'll stay completely reliant on God while making these decisions, and that I'll not worry about the details that I can't control.
Pray that I'll choose the right school, and that I'll know exactly where to make the budget cuts to afford it! :)
Thanks so much for all the support and prayers! It means more than you can ever know.
I'll keep ya'll updated..... :)
