Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
I Thessalonians 5:16-18
That moment when you receive and email with a letter of intent attached for a job offer and you have mild panic attack.
I have had 6 interviews in over the course of a two weeks. Two with the same school. I have prayed and prayed some more. I do not want to make the wrong move. I do not want to take my child somewhere and both end up miserable. I have managed to talk to at least one person at each school I interviewed with. Each person eased my concerns and I became more sure of my decision to leave.
Then Wednesday morning after I pulled into the parking lot at work I get an email. I immediately panic…wait I wasn’t ready what do mean I only have two days to sign. What about my daughter where does she fit in all this? Can she come to the school? What about tuition? What about her flight? Fix it Jesus I need answers before I sign and commit to this.
Finally I got off from work. I went home and I prayed. I looked at the idea of paying tuition and the bills I’ll have back home. Would this still make sense? I calmed down and I got happy again. God won’t lead me down a path and leave me stranded. I took a deep breath and prayed for guidance. I left my prayer at peace. I knew what I was going to do.
I didn’t overwhelm myself. I took a deep breath and hit submit.
