Today I started my new job as the manager over the group I was part of for the past three years. I am praying that God help all of us during this transition period. It will be different for each of us as we adjust to my new role. If you had asked me six years ago if I wanted to be a manager in my corporation, I would have laughed and said no way! There was no way I would even consider applying on a management job. I enjoyed coming home at the end of the day and leaving my work-at work.Now, look at me. I’m a freaking manager! What happened, you ask? Well, to put it simply, God changed my heart and He changed my mind. Also, God gave me dreams to confirm what He was wanting to do in my life. I had a few transition dreams over the course of the three years since working in my group. When I first started having the dreams, I was in awe, to be quite honest. I was in awe because I was dreaming again, and in awe that God would want me to pursue this new career. I only shared my dreams with my husband and a few close friends because I know most people have a hard time believing that God speaks through dreams today, but believe me, He does!
I will admit that even though I had the dreams, I struggled with believing I had understood the meaning correctly. I would go over them and over them, especially when it was time for the rubber to meet the road, and the position became open. I gave God every reason why I could not be the manager and even come to peace within myself with the possibility of working for someone who might not even know what goes on in our department, or for someone I have odds with. I knew that no matter what, God was with me. Once I let go of my worries about getting, or not getting the job, or if I was in the right timing and season in my life that the dream was meant for, I received peace.
There is no peace like God’s peace and I wouldn’t want any job without it. I am so thankful for friends who have prayed with me and for me, and I am thankful that God has chosen me for such a time as this. Thank you Father for never leaving me or forsaking me, and for equipping me for that which you have called me to do!
