You know how things are overwhelming, some days more than others?
Today is one of those days for me, and it centers around my career dreams.
I feel so trapped where I am right now. I know what my heart desires to do as a full-time career and it’s clear God is calling me there. But knowing exactly how to make the transition from where I am now to where I want to be is pretty foggy. I long for clarity and direction! I’m a passionate soul with a drive to help others become the best versions of themselves. I just don’t feel I’m fully able do that by testing software. Although it's been a terrific career for 14 years, my passion has shifted!
I place my trust in God, my Heavenly Father! He's the reason I'm able to continue putting forth the effort to deliver quality results and continue learning a very difficult and intricate application (that constantly feels like "math" to me!). I believe this dream in my soul was placed there by Him! His timing is perfect and, although it seems as though it's taking longer than I'd like, I believe He sees what's in store and I trust His will for me. As I wait, I try to keep my eyes focused on the blessings of the job I have. Some days I do well. Other days I find myself asking God to forgive my ungratefulness.
This is my prayer today...
"Lord, you are so mighty and loving! I cannot thank you enough for placing this dream in my heart and I ask your forgiveness for when I've doubted Your timing. Please help me to have patience and draw satisfaction from You alone. I place my career in Your hands and I believe Your will is greater than any plans I could make for my life. God, you are SO GOOD!!! I love you, Father, and I thank you for blessing this girl beyond measure! It's in Your name I pray, Amen!"
