I’m Quitting My Job!

I’m quitting my job!!! I still can’t believe I’m doing this! I put my notice in yesterday, although I had the resignation letter written and sitting in my inbox for weeks. I just sat on it, prayed over it, talked about it a lot with my husband and close friends until I was sure I was really ready to take this jump. I’ve been wanting to do this for a long time but I’ve been scared. Really scared. Now that I’ve sent the letter out and my boss responded giving me so much love, encouragement, and support, I feel a sense of peace and excitement. I’m still really nervous because the consistent paycheck will be gone soon and that scares me a lot. But, at the same time, I know my family and I will be just fine. I know God is in control and He will provide for our needs. Quitting my job is me taking a leap of faith. As scary as it is, I just keep reminding myself of a line in my artist prayer, “I trust God and He is safe to follow”. The dreams that I am pursuing He gave me and I know essentially I have nothing to fear. I don’t know if this peace and excitement I’m feeling will disappear in a couple weeks on my last day when I walk out of that door, but right now I’m excited and I’ve already started implementing the plans I’ve made to prepare for this moment. In a couple weeks, I’m going to be my own boss!! I’m super excited and scared as F*&k, but here we go!

Oh yea, I came across this video today on Twitter and I want to share it because it was just the confirmation and encouragement I needed. It gave me a sense of, ” yes, I’m totally headed in the right direction.”

Living is a form of not being sure, not knowing what next or how. The moment you know how, you begin to die a little. The artist never entirely knows. We guess. We may be wrong, but we take leap after leap in the dark. -Agnes De Mille

Trust that still small voice that says, “This might work and I’ll try it.” -Diane Mariechild

6 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7 Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.  Philippians 4:6-7

    1. Thank you for that feedback! Definitely needed to hear that! The transition hasn’t been easy, and I’ve struggled here and there with doubt. BUT, I’m learning to walk in Faith and trust God through it all. Right when I feel like I should throw in the towel, He shows me I’m on the right track and to just keep going.
