Yesterday, I woke up early and felt butterflies in my stomach. They weren't anxious butterflies; they were the excited, reminiscent-of-the-first-day-of-school butterflies. After a wonderful thirteen-day break, I was returning to work.
Some people hate their jobs. I've been there. But for almost five years now, I've counted as one of my greatest blessings that I have a job that I love. And the people with whom I work make my job truly enjoyable.
So it's no wonder that I looked forward to visiting with my co-workers and hearing about their Christmas celebrations. I also enjoyed challenging my mind and getting back in a routine.
If you're reading this and thinking that you'll never have a job that you enjoy, I would love for you to read how I got to this point. Please don't interpret this as a push for everyone to quit their jobs and to hope for an outcome similar to mine. Instead, if you've been seeking the Lord's direction and feel like He is leading you to take a leap of faith and explore a new career, I would encourage you to be obedient and watch for the blessings that follow.
