In December of 2012 I was ready when I found myself unemployed and was actually looking forward to the time being unemployed. I decided that I would let my hair grow long in a sort of celebration of the time off. As you can see by this photo, my hair grew quite long and I've enjoyed it.
Not very long ago, John and I felt that it was time I started looking for a job. Because the Lord has provided we both have been quite happy with me not working. We knew that just as I was exactly where He wanted me at 21st, so I have been exactly where the Lord has wanted me unemployed. Now it is time to make another change.
Now, I have to admit I've struggled with the idea of going back to work, and I've had to talk long with the Lord about it. All through this time He's been patient and loving to me. I finally came to the place where I said, "Lord you call me to trust You. In You, Lord, I will trust."
What about Ebenezer Productions, you ask? I am more convinced than ever that the Lord has this in mind for me. I am confident that whatever job I get, the Lord will use that job to prepare me for what He has in mind for Ebenezer Productions; and that includes my writing and my photography.
Yesterday I put in my application at Express Personnel. As I walked into their office and throughout my interview, I felt it was exactly where I was supposed to be and exactly what I was supposed to do. Because John and I trust the Lord with all our hearts and not leaning on our own understanding, and because we are acknowledging Him in all our ways, He is directing our paths. Where He leads will be exactly where I'm supposed to be.
So, today I decided to cut my hair.
Here I am, Lord, ready to go where you lead.
