... I’m going to mark this as done.
As a very poignant hymn states: “All my work is for the Master, He is all my heart’s desire”. I enjoy my work and I am enjoying learning what God is showing me about my life today and my future work as well. But the truth is, when I put my all into whatever I’m doing in order to serve Jesus, I am truly passionate about my work. Now that my focus has shifted to where it belongs, to whom it belongs, this goal is all done.
Colossians 3:23-24 (NLT)
Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. Remember that the Lord will give you an inheritance as your reward, and that the Master you are serving is Christ.
I don’t entirely know what I’m doing yet, or what the job really entails, but what I am liking so far is that it allows me to do the things in life that I am passionate about. The hours are reasonable, I can stand doing the work better than most things I could imagine, and the pay will improve over time. So, I’ll let you know about the passionate part… later…
Well, the first part of this goal is accomplished: “finding work”
I start on Tuesday after Labour Day and give me a bit of time to find out if I’m passionate about it or not. I am certainly intrigued by where it might lead…
So, with my newfound gumption to apply for jobs again and using the technique of applying to whatever looks interesting to me, I find myself with two job interviews (at two different places) this week. Actually, if I had been in the country they would have been last week but this coming week works too. Both are similar kind of jobs (at least at a first glance) and neither one is too far from home. We’ll have to see how I do, how things go and feel, etc. to see what happens next, but this is officially the opening of the latest chapter of in story.
But it’s not the right timing just yet. So having said that much, I’m still on the hunt for the thing that is a passion in the meantime. Haha. Nothing seems to change, eh?
... and I’ve been exploring some new ideas. I’ve also been working a bit of freelance in. Some tutoring, some accompanying, little bits and bobs that teach me new things about how I’d love to spend my time working and otherwise.
I’ve got a possible exciting opportunity that should break open in the next month or so, but into what I’m not sure yet. Whether it’s another nice freelance type thing or something more remains to be seen. But I’m getting really good at ruling things out as well as tuning into the idea of finding my dreams again…. That should help.
The phone interview came and went, with nothing to follow. So I’m a little disappointed but fortunately not too much.
I’ve just ruled out the one job I’ve ever been excited about (that directly relates to what I studied in school) and now it feels like it’s time to move on and follow a different passion.
I have my first interview coming up for my potential employment and I’m trying to get in gear to be the most prepared I can be. I’m excited… this is definitely a great start to a new year!
Another job that excites me has come up and I’ve totally gone for it. Applied this afternoon and am hoping for an interview!! (And then the job! ;))
Yep I hit the road three weeks back. Had a great experience over all. Learned a lot, including the idea that it really wasn’t what I was looking or hoping for—at least not right now. But I had to take the risk to find that out, and I’m glad I did. It also turns out that they chose to continue looking, which was a huge relief for me.
I am thankful for this opportunity. It helped me assess a lot of things that directly impact where I am in life right now. I still love the overall idea of the particular job, but it isn’t for me right now. And might not be later, but that’s not my concern at the moment.
Now, onwards to find out what is!!! :)
