my grandma decided i wasnt ready to move to mc camey/odessa by myself yet.
she was right.
i applied to work at a thrift store, as a joke.
turns out, the thrift store is a ministry.
they have 4 different opportunities of ministry:
1. the thrift store
2. a womens center
3. emergency assistance
4. insight to life
when i got the call back i realized i could just be a cashier for a few months then move to odessa.
i got the job.
i am a cashier.
two weeks into being a cashier,
i meet the founder of Creative Outreach Ministries.
she asked if i would be okay with running sound for some events(youth rallies, conferences, etc etc)
of course, i said yes.
one week after saying yes, she asked if i would like be the event coordinator.
i prayed & sought God for a few weeks about it.
that would mean living in conroe/montgomery for at least 5 years.
its funny cause The Lord knows i struggle with “commitment” and swallowing my desires(which is to move to odessa)
once & for all
i am completely okay with swallowing my desires, staying commited & “slowing down.”
whats the rush in the first place?
i was speaking to a good friend of mine & she opened my eyes, yet again, about how as young adults we want to fulfill our dreams tomorrow,
when we have no legitimate experience just passion & yes, so many things can be birth out of passion but w/a passion you also need knowledge.
you cant just be super spiritual and no earthly good. (is that how that saying goes?)
the point is, here i am
the event coordinator. i start in two weeks.
i can completely say this is by the grace of God, nothing i could have EVER done could have brought me here.
its wild what God can do for you & through you; if you only let him.
p.s. i do not like dogs.
p.s.s. to my future husband-i will make no exceptions…no dogs, no animals, not even a fish. 🙂
