A Seriously Crazy, Amazing, Very Good Day

This week has been busy. I subbed for our local preschool Monday morning, 3rd grade most of yesterday, kindergarten all day today, and tomorrow afternoon. Due to things going on after school, friends, dance class, church program, I haven't gotten in any running since Sunday, when I got in a good 5 mile run. I wonder how people who work full-time fit in running.

Well, I may be finding out soon. If you've read my blog for a little bit, I've mentioned have a job interview or looking for a job occasionally. I figured with substituting teaching and editing, I was where I was supposed to be and was okay with that. Finances are extremely tight (well, probably beyond tight to be honest) but I was just trusting that God would provide (as He has in the past), we would manage to get bills paid.

Fast forward to this afternoon. Without any details, I felt like, financially and emotionally, I was at rock bottom. The girls and I headed up to church for our Wednesday evening program, and honestly, I wished I wasn't going. My throat hurt, I was tired, and I wasn't in the best of moods.

We got there and I took my spot checking in kids when our children's pastor came and sat down. Usually, she is running around tending to all the details for the evening and we only have quick conversations. She asked how I was doing and I said I've had better days. She went on to tell me our pastor was looking for me, to which I jokingly replied, should I hide? We laughed and she went on to tell me that the church secretary was leaving and that he wanted to hire me.

Mind you, he has never seen my resume, honestly, I don't think he even knows what jobs I've held before. He does know, however, that I run :-) (although I don't think that made any difference). I thought I would have a chance to talk with him during the class time but couldn't get away and honestly, thought I was pretty shallow if I was putting a job opportunity in front of helping out with my class, so I headed upstairs later than expected and found him still waiting to talk to me.

Now, the weird, amazing, thing that gives you chills, is that Sunday during church I remember thinking, being a church secretary would be pretty interesting. I've also thought in the last month or so that I would really like to not have to go through an interview process, etc. to get a job (I am horrible at interviews). I would really like a job to fall into my lap. Hmmmm...

So, tomorrow I'm calling to tell our pastor I'm interested in the job. Now, I'm starting to think about all the things that will change (and getting a sick feeling in my stomach but at the same time shaking with amazement and excitement):
I don't get to spend afternoons with my husband
•I won't be able to pick up and/or drop off my girls at school
•I won't be able help out in Emily's classroom
•I was just getting busy subbing and people appreciated me
•I'm going to miss coffee time with my friends on Friday afternoons
•I haven't worked full-time since 2001!

And, back to where I started, how am I going to fit in marathon training next summer?

I guess we will just have to take it one step at a time...just like running a marathon.

Believe me, I know how you feel!!
God knows where He wants you and needs you, isn't it amazing?
You'll make it all work out.

That is amazing, congratulations! I can't say I'm a religious person, but I consider myself a spiritual person and believe that the universe will provide if I leave myself open to the possibilities.

I had a similar situation very recently. I thought about and voiced my situation with no expectations except that I would find a way somehow. A very short while later I was provided a solution. I was stunned.

This sounds like a great fit for you. You'll figure out how to get in your training. It will work itself out.
