Decisions 101

Tonight, I spent possibly two hours working on a resumé from a template that comes with Microsoft Office 2016. I finally gave up in frustration because I wanted to delete certain items from the formatting and it replaced the empty space with descriptions of other things I may want to include elsewhere. After highlighting and deleting and then seeing other information show up, I’d move my cursor over to that offending entry and highlight and delete until it became apparent that the program was winning and I was continuing in a losing activity. So, I gave up.
I then went to a blank Word document and using an older resumé. I made up a new one with the homemade format. That probably took me half an hour or more of the two hours I mentioned above. The template may work for people that are more computer savvy than I am.
After all that work, I wondered if I will need the resumé soon or not. I saw an ad for a part-time job that sounded good to me. I told my grandson and a few others that I’m interested in it. At the end of a long day and after working on a resumé that mostly highlights writing, I began to think about this step I might take. When I told my husband about it he sounded enthusiastic about it, but he asked, “Do you want to take this job?”
I changed my schedule around in case I send the resumé out so I’d be available for the employer. Now, I need to think about the opportunity, pray about it, and consider my calendar. I’ve already prayed that if it’s not a good idea, don’t let them hire me, but that’s not exactly the way I want to pray.
I’m thinking of going to visit the place and check out the drive. It’s not right around the corner.
I have until September 13 to send out my information, so I have time to ponder. I don’t like to commit to something and then figure out I need to quit.
When I wasn’t sure about becoming a pastor’s wife, a young pastor gave me a Word from the Lord at the altar of the church we were attending. I was praying quietly about it and suddenly he showed up at my elbow and told me something to the effect that the Lord was saying you will be a pastor’s wife, you’re already acting in that capacity.
Friends gave me a plaque with the Scripture: 1 Thessalonians 5:24, “The one who calls you is faithful and he will do it.”
What relief that gave me!
May God bless you.

  1. That’s awesome. Just remember, Father never calls us to do something he’s not prepared us for. He always prepares us in nature or in skills for the way he wants us to go. Let go and let him direct you and walk with fearlessness. He is faithful who calls us to his path 😉 Love you!
