Smell the Roses

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...

Have you taken any leaps of faith lately?


  1. Oh my gosh! This is so awesome! GO GIRL :)
    I can't imagine how hard it must have been to talk to your boss, but I bet you're so glad that you did it! Congrats and best of luck on your new job!!

    And by the your header!


  2. I am sure it will work out for the best for you!! I quit my job a few months ago, on a leap of faith and it was one of the best things I have ever done!!


I'd love to hear your thoughts...
