When He Says Yes, Nobody Can Say No

1 Peter 1:6
So be truly glad. There is wonderful joy ahead, even though you have to endure many trials for a little while

Yesterday was a little awkward for me. I came into work fresh from the weekends festivities and I felt a little knot balling up in my stomach. One thing that I can say is that each job I have taken on, I have grown a relationship with the people within the company. I haven't found a place where I can say I hate everyone there (you shouldn't hate folks anyway), but rather I found friendships and built bonds. It's that time again. I feel as though I just sent out a resignation letter for my last job and here I am again, sending my two week notice for me to leave my current job.

I mentioned in a recent post that I had been dealing with a tough decision and it was whether I would continue working at my job, taking unnecessary classes in school---or quit my job and finish school so that I can move onto the next level in my life. I prayed so much, so earnestly. I cried to God and let him know what was in my heart. We have become so swayed to believe that we should never quit a job unless we had another one lined up. There were times when I mentioned to someone that I would be quitting my job soon and they would ask, "Do you have a job lined up or a part-time job for when you're in school?" I just realized within this past week that I had The Lord and that's all I need at this point.

That might sound unrealistic but it's so very realistic. He is my provider and whatever Ineed, I believe that I will receive. School is important to me for two reasons. Unless you are monstrously driven to be an entrepreneur, you usually need a degree for a decent paying job. I'm not afraid to admit that I am fearful and doubtful at times, so that interferes with my determination. Yet, God is still working in me and through me so … *inserts Kendrick Lamar lyrics* I'M GON' BE ALRIGHT!

So I put my two weeks notice in. My last day will be August 28th and I begin school on September 8th.  School plus Me, there is a love hate relationship. My second reason for school being so important to me, I havewasted- spent so many years in and out of school, undecided with what I really wanted to with my life and in all actual reality, I still am uncertain. However, the first step for me was to leave a job that I found no way of growth in and pursue my Journalism degree.

I believe that sometimes we have to let go of the idea of normality. Yes, we need money in order to survive but having faith that God will provide is what's most important. I believe that many doors will open and I am excited for the opportunities.
