I always like to go through my old posts and re-read what I have written. It's a way of reflecting and to see what God has done. I noticed that my last three posts were a little down and woe is me. And it's okay to get like that sometimes, but it's definitely not okay to say in that rut. By the way, TS, I read your comment and I'm praying over what you said. :)
It's not going to do me any good to complain about things.
So, today I'm going to focus on the blessings. Yeah, blessings are a good thing.
Most people have heard this news, but for those of you who aren't on Facebook and only read this blog, as of Monday, the 29th, I will officially be employed again. Hooray! I was hired with Indiana University Health working for a hospital a few towns away. This is the biggest blessing to me! Not only will I have a job with a steady paycheck again, but I will also have health insurance & retirement. The job is nice, but for the longest time I've been going to school for nursing. I kept saying, "If I could just get my foot in the door with a medical facility". Knowing I would have to take a cut in pay, but it's okay, I just wanted my foot in the door. And sometimes you have to start back at the bottom to get back up. So, here I am employed with the biggest health system in the state of Indiana who by the way also has a nursing program. Did you hear that?!?! I said a nursing program! *Does a happy dance*
It all feels surreal to me, like I'm dreaming. But I'm not, the badge says I'm employed by the hospital. Employed by the hospital...man, I LOVE the sound of that. It's like sweet, sweet music to my ears. I'm one step, or maybe a few steps, closer to achieving a long term goal.
I was getting so discouraged and just when I was about to give up and not look for any more jobs, God came through. He's good about doing that.
Thanks, God. You are good.
