Change defined as a verb means: make or become different. Change is great. It allows for new experiences. New opportunities. New adventures. Change comes easily for some. For others, not so much. I fall in the latter. I celebrate change of those around me. But I don’t personally like change. Something has to propel me to change my routine.
My first major change was moving six hours from my parents. A recent college grad out on her own.
Another major change was deciding to quit graduate school and stay away from home.
Then I found a job that I have worked for the past 8 years. So much has been gained. New skill sets. New friendships. New lessons. An opportunity to go back to grad school. Now there were some bumpy moments along the way but as I reflect on the next change happening in my life I know it was preparing me for this moment.
So today, August 29th at 9:00 am, I walk into a new season. I walk into the offices of Northwest Home Health as their new business office manager. I walk into the person working in her degree area. I walk into new opportunities. New skills sets. New challenges. New relationships. Now this is scary but I am grateful that the excitement is so much greater.
I thank God for strengthening my patience for this moment. I asked God if this was the door that was supposed to open that I will walk through it. So I have to keep my word, continue to trust, and start my new season.
