This week Smell The Roses Returned at the beautiful blog belonging to Jess at Lovely Little Things. It returned with a particular task which pretty much sums up the week that was for me.
The challenge was to Take a leap of faith, do something you're afraid to do.
So I did it.
I quit my job.
If you've read my blog for very long you'd notice that a lot of my posts stem from things that take place in my work place-I work as a Chaplain for a Primary School. I love my job. It has been such an incredible source of blessing and joy over the past two years. It's just that I've felt for a while my season there was coming to an end.
Last week, I was officially offered a PA position at a small company my friend works in. So, I took it. The door opened to this job a couple of weeks ago and nothing has seemed to shut the door...not my having to stay at my current workplace for another six weeks, not my having a holiday coming up in December, not my lack of experience in administration...nothing closed the door to this opportunity.
Me resigning from my job was really hard. In fact I was scared to talk to my boss. But it was something I had to face in order to bring about some much-needed change in my life.
I start training two days a week next week and then go full time after the school term finishes...
In my leap of faith, I can only pray that I am caught in the arms of the one who holds all things in His hands...
