It’s been 37 days since my last blog post. It hadn’t been intentional, but eventually I figured why not just wait until my fast was over before I pop back up on the blog. My fast just ended yesterday. It began February 24th and went thru April 4th. It’s a big step for me.
I participated in my first fast last year. I did it on my own as a way to seek God, to hear from Him, and to get closer to Him. Last year I believe I did it for two weeks and I gave up sodas, fast food and social media. I read my devotionals daily, read more Bible and listened exclusively to gospel music. I felt I really grew in my faith and walk. I did it on my own and not with the church.
This year I decided to do it with the church. I am a member now and I agree with my church’s vision and wanted to participate in this fast. It hasn’t always been easy. I got up for morning prayer at 6:33 every day except Sundays. I really felt that I was growing closer. I am so glad I did the fast.
Now in my last fast, I had some personal gains so to speak. I had two different jobs that I made it to the second round of interviews for. Close but no cigar. This time around, I had an inkling in my spirit that by the end of the fast, something big was going to come to pass. I had a hunch it would be that I would change positions at work, but of course, couldn’t be sure. Well, thankfully, my hunch was right!!!
And it happened so fast!!!
Within the past few weeks, I applied, phone screened, panel interviewed, was offered and accepted a new position at my company!!!! I am sooooo very happy to say that as of Monday, I am in a new department in my new position and I am truly happy and thankful and grateful!!! God is so good!!!!!
Last week felt like my last week of high school. Like all I am doing is coming to class in order to graduate… all of the exams have been taken and it’s just a waiting game until the weekend. It felt super awesome!!!
Like I am not burdened with any thoughts about my past job. No dreading going to work. Work is work, I know, but guys, I just can’t even put this into words how awesome this feels!!!
It’s in the department that I wanted from the beginning. It uses my degree. It has tons of opportunity for growth. It’s exactly what I’ve wanted. It’s truly a blessing and I am truly grateful. I know that from here, it’s going to get even better : ) Thank you Lord!!!
