So last night I was talking about change and bam today a change happened for me at work. This is a new exciting challenge that is a great opportunity for me in my career development and I look forward to the change and the future. So here is to change and the refreshment it can bring. Glory to God for He is the provider of these oppurtunities and the challenges they bring and through Him all things are possible.

So change is everywhere in all facets of life and the more I deal with it the more I know I have to learn and accept it. We get change when we buy things, we see the seasons change, and we go through changes in our lives almost every day. For me life has changed a lot in the last five years or so some good some not so good but in the long run things have turned out pretty good. Through all of these changes I have have tried to make sense of why things are happening and have tried to make them stop but have realized more with every change I am not in charge, God is and He has a purpose for all the changes and I need to just stop all the worrying and let Him be in control and trust Him completely. So here's to lifes changes and just like changes in the weather I know that even on the darkest, stormy day that the sun will soon return because God is in control.

Why do I worry so much? That is a question I ask myself daily. I have so much in my life, sure there has been a lot of changes in the last couple of years but I have a lot of good things to. A wonderful family, the best dog and cat in the world, friends who truly care for me, a home, food in the fridge and now I have a good job with a great company and most of all it's a secure job, I am back at a church where I truly feel loved and needed and the youth are just great. God truly blesses me every day but unfortunately I do not take the time to see all the blessings and for that I am so sorry. So I guess my worries are nothing more than away for evil to creep into my life and take away the joy that is really there. So here I go again saying tomorrow no more worrying about everything just trust in God and hopefully this time I will do it and not just say it.

So it's been two weeks since starting my new job with State Farm and things have been great so far. I have learned so much in a short time and it feels good to actually be doing something and engaging my brain. For the last 5 plus years I felt so stressed about work and the stability of my job and all the stuff going on in the work place that I was always tired, irritable and had so much tension from the stress in my neck and shoulders that sleeping was difficult. Now I wake up feeling refreshed after a good nights sleep and look forward to a new day. I know this job will have its stress to but I am sure it will be much better and that is what I have been looking for in life. God has truly been good to me and my family in blessing me with my new job and all the other things going on in my life even though at times I wondered what the heck was going on and why I was going through so much stuff that seemed to all keep piling up on one bad thing after another. Now I see that there was a reason for all that stuff and I am stronger for it and ready for the challenges that all the change has brought and know that God will see my family and I through all that is in the future. Grace, Love and Mercy to all and God bless. One last thing in the process of having time off I finally did do something I have wanted to do for a long time I got a tattoo. I will post a picture of it soon.

Man what a year it has been with regards to change for me. since last August I have had 3 jobs taken away from me. The first was last year when the place I had worked at for 18 years was closed by the group that had purchased us 2 years prior and ran it in to the ground. The second was a Youth Ministry job that was part-time and after 8 months it also ended after what we will call a difference in beliefs and ideas for direction of the ministry. Now the place I had been at since my past employer closed has let me go due to financial problems. So 18 years at one place and now 3 job losses in one year talk about a blow to your self esteem. Now with all that out of the way I once again have seen how God takes care of us and truly does not close a door without opening a window. I have had a new opportunity placed before me in the form of a job and even though the next year will be rough for us financially because I will be making considerably less in the long run it will be better for me and my family because of all this company has to offer. I have to admit it is scary making such a change but I know it is time for it to happen. For the last 19 years I have worked in health care ((eye care) and it has always been somewhat unstable and especially the last 10 years or so sometimes wandering if I would get a paycheck and always wandering if the place would close, not to mention no real retirement benefits or ability to move upward. Now I will be working for a fortune 500 company with stability, retirement benefits and advancement opportunities. So here is to this new segment of my life and seeing where it takes me and like I said earlier I have definitely learned that God does have a plan for my life even when it seems like things are falling apart. So my advice. When you here that door slam look for the window that has just opened and through it you will see the great things God has put in front of you.

I just finished reading this a couple of weeks ago and loved it. David Gregory has done it once again using descriptions of his characters, figures and events to tell a wonderful story just like he has in the past with Dinner with A Perfect Stranger and Day With a Perfect Stranger. This tale of a young man named Logan who is fresh out of college and looking for a job who applies at Universal Systems and meets the CEO and is offered a position that is his dream job of being a organizational analyst. His assignment? Evaluate each of the 5 levels of the company and report back to the CEO. On each level he finds something different but also they have something in common they all seem to be missing the point of the company and none of them make a profit and this continues until he reaches the 5th level . This is a book for anyone looking for answers about what God is calling them to do. Each of the 5 levels represents a level of faith, and how things such as legalism, apathy, and denominational differences get is the way of Gods purpose for are life and in my opinion he nails a lot problems right on the head. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone searching for Gods purpose in life without a deep theological base.
