The period in my life that I have affectionately referred to as my time of “temporary retirement” is quickly coming to an end. I am pleased to announce that I am taking a new job at the end of this month! While I am excited about what lies ahead, I am also aware of what I am giving up. The time to support & serve those around me, goof off (let’s be honest,) and to just sit in my Father’s presence has been so special and I wouldn’t trade any minute of it.
I’ve had time the past few months to really process whose I am and who He has created me to be. He has called me “Sara.” He has called me “seen.” He has called me “fiercely loyal” and he has given me a “tenderness gifting” caring for the one’s and two’s instead of the masses. He has given me a passion for written encouragement, creativity, cooking and other cultures. And he has given me skills to plan, organize and pay attention to details. And I get to REST in all of this, knowing that he is creating a beautiful tapestry with every part of me – the good, the bad and the ugly. For His glory and my joy!
Going into this job, I want to desperately cling to what He says is important, not what the world says is important. I don’t want to fall back into my previous habits and forget how I have been called to live. Just like in my last post, I am praying to see situations with Heaven’s Eyes, filtered through what God says has eternal value.
