And I'm Loving It.
I got a new job and I'm loving it.
I just woke up from a nap and my first thought was about how I'd not really shared about that on my blog. Being as one of the reasons I have a blog is to track happenings in my life that didn't feel right. One of the biggest milestones of my life and not a peep? No. Not good. So here I am about to give you a peep. *smiling*
Why is my new job one of the biggest milestones of my life? First of all, it's because I'd prayed and prayed to God for it. I could show you my prayer journals. Almost every tithe was tied to this request. I needed a change. I tell you, there is nothing bigger for a child of God than when Heaven hears our heart's deepest desires and moves to make it happen. I really wanted this job and the quest of the devil to keep it from me was proportional to my desire for it but in the end my God won!
Yes, God won and now for the first time in all the twenty-four years I've been working (I resumed at my very first job on the 17th of April, 1991) I get to go to work every day and 'play'. Boom! My passion and my work have finally fused into one! I get to do what I love and get paid for it. How wonderful is that?
I've been at my job for a little over a month now and I'm loving it. Did I say that already? Lol! I'm sorry but when you get to be editor of your employer' newsletter which, in my view, is really an in-house magazine, you should be allowed to repeat yourself. *smiling* I'd always, always dreamed of working for a magazine. Over the years I've had articles published in great ones like TW, Policy, True Love as well as columns in newspapers like The Sun on Saturday and The Difference and now, thanks to my God who is the Master of the Game of my life, I get to be editor. Just typing those words give me 'goosies'. Thanks Jennifer Lopez! Lol!
My new supervisor is Adaobi. She is a rock star and made me feel so welcome and continues to make me feel so valued (which really helped me deal with some of the odd vibes I was getting from some quarters...but let's not go there today). Working with her and Lori to deliver our Q1 edition; the first edition with me as editor was such a thrill but I tell you I was not scared. I was petrified! Lol! But in a good way. Like being on a roller coaster but better. Been on a roller coaster once in my life and it's not gonna happen again. But I truly adore my first online 'baby' and can't wait to see it in print and to start working on our Q2 edition.
So, on a final note, do you see those four lines below? I shared them on FB this week and I will tell you what I told my friends then:
Let these four lines of text prove to you that when God is in a matter, there are no limits. Forget about clocks, calendars, biology, trends, protocols, medical reports, policies, rules, eligibility criteria, whatever! They don't matter! God controls them all! The only thing that matters; the only thing you should care about is how much of your life He controls.
For dear one reading this right now, I have come to see that the more of your life God controls, the more He moves for you. PapaGod, thank you for moving for me. I don't know what tomorrow brings. Anything could happen but as long as I gat You on my side, I'm good. Carry go!
To God alone be the glory!
