The Journey to Success Part 4

My first job out of college was a challenge because I didn’t really know what to expect. And what I expected and what actually happened were so vastly different that it frustrated me to no end. I spent most of my days doing ABSOLUTELY nothing. I went to work and warmed a seat. Here I was fresh out of college ready to be awesome and as useless as a mechanical pencil without lead (well I found it funny…and the best useless thing I could come up with). The thing is I knew this where God wanted me to be because he worked it out for me. I was about to graduate no idea what I was going to do. He swooped in just in time.

Eventually I found my niche at the company, and really started to LOVE my job. I felt comfortable (maybe that’s the key) and was on the track to be awesome. But somehow in God’s wonderful plan for my life I relocated and had to start a new job at a new company in a new city. So here I am over six years later, another degree and more letters behind my name, and again feeling useless. I will not bore you with the trivial details of why and how much I dislike where I work and some of the people I work with.
While I am actively looking for a new job, I am trying to make the most out of my experience here (pray church!!). I know God is able, he got me this job. Although I am ashamed to say I doubted him (smh). I am trusting him because He has turned some sucky situations into great experiences. Not sure if that will be my story in the end, but we’ll see. In my journey to contentment I am trying to totally trust God and seek out his lessons prayfully. I have prayed more at work than ever…growth (I mean stopped head dropped, pleading for his guidance…and PATIENCE). The one thing I do notice that is different than six years ago my mentally attitude. I don’t feel stuck (permanently) as I used to feel. This is only a temporary stop on my success train.
