“For the eyes of the LORD roam to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose hearts are loyal to Him…” 2 Chronicles 6:9
Well, apparently, His eyes landed on me.
I got a job. In. My. Field!!!!!!
If I were a gymnast, I would be doing back handsprings across Columbus right now.
I am so excited, I haven’t stopped smiling inside for days!
I was just going back and reading some of my old posts about how I cannot get a job and how miserable I have been and how college was such a waste of time, etc and all I can do is laugh. Despite all of my incessant whining (and possibly because of it), God saw fit to open the door of all doors for me. It’s as if He took it upon Himself to remind me that there isn’t anything too hard for Him.
It’s weird because this job isn’t even something I knew to apply for. It just fell into my lap after a chance meeting and I quickly realized that it is the career I should have been seeking all along. That’s just like God to do exceedingly and abundantly above all I could ever ask or think!!!
I am finally on the road to a successful career doing something I l-o-v-e. It will be challenging and I have a lot to learn, but I cannot remember the last time I have been THIS excited.
I am going to work SO HARD, my co-workers and my boss aren’t even ready. My boss really took a chance on hiring me and he won’t be disappointed. I’m going to outwork everyone because that is the Alissa Christine way.
Of course sunny days like this aren’t without a cloud or two in the sky…. I really wish my dad were still alive. He loved to celebrate things with me. No occassion was too small. Undoubtedly after I received the phone call, he would have insisted on taking me to Dairy Queen for banana splits. My dad would be telling everyone at work about my new job. I’d be suckering him into buying me a new wardrobe and the new computer that I want. He’d be calling me every minute to see how the new job is going. (*SIGH*) I don’t believe dead people “look down on us”, but if it’s true, my dad is definitely proud of me right now.
I am so overwhelmed with blessings, I can’t help but sing myself to sleep and wake up dancing.
After years of utter ridiculousness and disappointment, I finally have the boyfriend of my dreams. And after months (that felt like years) of ridiculousness and disappointment on the job front, I finally have the job of my dreams.
