I am free.
This is my totally random good morning essay that saves the introduction for the second paragraph. Heyyyyy! Shout out to all my God-fearing brothers and sisters! It's completely amazing to me how my mood for months can be to just remain silent and listen and then BAM! All of a sudden I feel like talking again! Hallelujah! God does say there is a time and season for all things, in my case even to shut up and listen! I think too many people (guilty!) ignore and are ignoring their God-given seasons.
Besides unfathomable seasons, how about delicious seasoning! I made a crock pot full of veggies and kidney beans last night with all my favorite spices. Today I'm cooking more in the skillet (awesome assortment of vegetables and good-for-you-stuff like chia seeds!) to add to it and some beef! I'm going to do onions and jalapeños on the side for the spicy lovers like me and tomato sandwiches to have with it! Then I'm bringing it all to my brothers and sisters in Christ who are going through a hard time right now. Man, God is just SO awesome! How honored I am to even attempt to serve His people!
Before I go to the Farmers market and cook more fresh and delicious food (last night was fresh fried okra, too!), I have to go fill out paperwork for my background check. Yesterday was my third interview with them and the third department! They referred me to be employed in their surgical center! She is aware of my previous charges and drug history so as long as everything comes back right then I'm in!!! I'm soooo excited, this place is a well-known Ophthalmologist with a surgery center. I'll have to learn a lot of new information which I LOVE and before too long I'll be a surgical counselor and in the future I could even be a surgical assistant! That's how awesome God is, He just elevates your mood and spirits and blesses you beyond your wildest imaginations! Okay, I'm not getting a grammy or anything but I might as well be because I'm just as excited!
Seriously though, I made my availability at Cracker Barrel for only Saturday nights because I had that job at the Exxon for 4 months and was making over 400 a week. Then the guy that got me the job there promised me more money somewhere else and talked a big game and it turned out to be nothing like he said. He dropped me soon after he realized he couldn't make anywhere near what he thought he was going to make, with or without me, especially with me, though. After working nearly 70 hours a week (much more including house work and such), I was exhausted and inwardly was sad that I didn't have time to garden anymore or to do what I really loved doing like singing and playing guitar, too! In an instant I went back to having all the time in the world again and a much needed break for this past month or so.
I had my first interview with this particular office (whose true identity I do not wish to disclose at this time for privacy reasons) maybe 6 months ago or longer and this was the job that I really wanted! They never called me back and some months later and ago, I had a second with a different department that didn't call back and a third, yesterday, with the best department. She said the other departments had really liked me! After talking for an hour and getting to share a few testimonies, and going over job specifics, she called me back yesterday evening and said she was excited to offer me the position! I said, I'm so excited to be offered the position! My mind was blown! The point I'm trying to make is that even though I got burned again and lied to by someone I considered a friend (Trust no man!), left what I thought was a good job(which really wasn't at all besides the money and that's a bad reason to stay somewhere) over it and started going back in debt, got denied twice by the job I desired, by continuing to choose God and forgiveness, not losing faith, being patient and waiting on His perfect timing, He blessed me much more than I deserve and granted me the true desire of me heart, AGAIN! And guess what, y'all? I work within two minutes WALKING distance of my home, wooooo, hallelujah!!!!
I'm going to end with this: I know my journey was once dark and gloomy but once I started to do right(through the grace and power of Jesus and His righteousness), things have slowly and miraculously began to turn around. All the glory, honor and praise goes to our most High God, our wonderful savior, Yeshua! Sometimes we have to do the right thing for quite some time before we begin to see the right results. God bless you!!!
