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. 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!

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
