I work in sales. I have worked in the same company for 11 years. I've done a multitude of different jobs. I have loved probably about 10 of the years total that I worked there.
I just transferred to a new group, doing the same thing, just selling to different people, and I have a new boss. It's the first time in 7 years I haven't worked for the same person. I loved my old boss, she was great. but it really was time for a change. I prayed, and I thought there was an open door, and just as I was about to walk through it, it shut. And can I tell you, thank God for closed doors because I have been rejuvenated since being in this new group.
Yesterday was my dad's birthday, and I couldn't go out to eat with them because they left early, and I couldn't leave work. I was bummed but because Phyllis went with them, I worked late. And most people would complain they had to work late, and tomorrow I am going in for an hour or two, and even though I am not paid by the hour, I'm ok with it. I actually left work (at 6:45) yesterday and thought, "man, How blessed am I that I love my job". And in the peacefulness of the parking lot (because only the cleaning people were there), I gave profs to God for leading me here, and placing me exaclty where I am supposed to be.
We got a new VP starting Monday, and it's going to be a time of adjustment, because they all like things a different way, but really, I'm excited. A lot has already happened in 2008, but I am so excited to see the wonders God has in store for the rest of the year. I can't wait to see Him move in BIG ways, and in little ways. I can't wait to see His beauty in sunsets and in macaroni and cheese.
He's amazing, and I am forever greatful for His love. He knows way better than I.
Psalms 20:4 May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed.
