Can You Hear Me Now?

Moving On...

Yesterday when I got off work at 4:30 p.m. we were two, possibly three staff ‘lighter’, as the first of the downsizing cuts were made. As I’ve mentioned before I feel a whole lot of peace about the whole thing, but man it hurts to see my co-workers in such strife and uncertainty. I tried to encourage them as they ‘packed’ and remind them that their heavenly Father has something greater and that THIS was never their destiny…but it still hurts.

I’m pretty sure I’ll get my ‘pink slip’ after I complete the year end close on Thursday. I have an interview for Friday and while I haven’t heard directly from God about it…yet…it’s a start in the right direction. Now if I’ll just trust that God’s desire is that thing, the aching in the middle of my heart that screams to get out of the analytical and INTO the more artful. AND if I don’t just accept some ‘replacement’ job that is utterly spirit-strangling and hang tight for the job He is aligning…then it will be all GOOD!

I’ll close with these reminders:

“The end of wisdom is to dream high enough not to lose the dream in the seeking of it.”
William Faulkner

“Life is short, art long, opportunity fleeting, experience treacherous, judgment difficult.”

“The only way of finding the limits of the possible is by going beyond them into the impossible.”
Arthur C. Clarke

I hope you find beauty in your whole day!

Praying you'll continue to rely on God's timing and wisdom, Kim. It worked for me, and I know He's got the best in store for you as well!

Praying that God will lead you to a job you can be happy at.There is nothing worse than having to drag yourself into a job you hate, day after day. I know this from experience. I also know that God will put you where He can use you, and sometimes it's someplace you might not expect. God bless you and Paul, this New Year, and always. Ken

"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you." Jeremiah 29:11,12
Kim, every place on which your feet shall tread, He will give to you. (also Jeremiah, I believe!!) Go in His peace, and He will direct your paths! I am so very excited to see where the Lord brings you this New Year!!!
Blessings to you and yours, as you seek His face.

I sincerely hope you find the perfect job situation. It's so difficult to work productively when you find yourself in a difficult work environment. Good luck to you!!

I have loved my job for so long, but am getting frustrated with the multitude of changes taking place which directly affect me in a negative way. It's sad to not love it like I did. So I know how much I want for you to find something that you love getting up for every day! Blessings on you in 2007.

My "science brain" never developed, so I don't know most of what you were talking about in this last brilliant post!

getting fired from MCI was the best thing that ever happened to me.
