In life, there are moments when circumstances and events begin to escort a person out of a facet of their known life and into a different one. Sometimes the transition is not what as expected. Furthermore, it can be rough and bring challenges into a person’s life. Yet, for born-again Christians, this facet of life does not have to be a dreadful moment, they can arise in faith and serve in the areas where God has them at that moment in time.
I have completed thirty days since I was systematically escorted into resigning from my part-time job. It was a job I held for around seven years in which I primarily served Christians in the border-area of South Texas and Mexico. It was a job where I learned much about Christian literature, media, and gifts. More importantly, I learned much about the proper manner of relating to customers as customers but also as "people of God" with His love. I am grateful to God's Spirit for helping me to learn these important lessons and being with me through challenging circumstances and people as well.
Since my last day of work, I have worked in attending to odds and ends around my house. I have also continued to work on finishing the reading of different faith-based books, writing internet posts, and more importantly, personal ministry work. For several weeks now, I have been working with a young person who had been seeking to learn more about their faith in God. In the process, we came to an agreement of meeting at a local coffee shop and spending time in both fellowship and Bible study. It has been my honor to work with this young person and watch them grow in the faith. I am grateful to God for all the training that He put me through so that I could be readily available to work with this young person. It is my hope that God will continue to use me in similar manners with other people as well.
On a different note, I have submitted job applications and resumes to different places, but I have yet to hear from any of them for an interview. At this time I don't know with certainty where and what God desires for me do for this coming facet of my life, so I continue to submit applications to places and positions for which I perceive I am most qualified and leave the matter in God's will for my life. I bring all my submissions to Him in prayer and trust that He will exercise His best for this coming facet of my life.
Dear God, You who are great and grand. I want to thank you for having provided for all of my needs up to this point in time. I am grateful for the things I have learned in the past seven years and I am anxious to jump in and begin to learn what You have in mind for me to do in the coming years. I am also grateful for the opportunity you have presented to me in working with this young person; I pray Your Spirit will continue to work through me as I work with them. I put my trust in you YHWH. Amen.
