When i tell you May is the best month of the year, you best believe i mean it. However, you would have to read more to know what i am talking about.
May 12 2017 was the date, which happened to also be my birthday. My sister and I were at a new discovered joint having the best burgers ~ if you live in Seattle you gotta try The Habit burger grill ~ I have ever heard as a celebration for my birthday when I got the call. For those who have been keeping up with my blog posts know that I have been searching high and low for a REAL job position since I completed my undergrad classes. In the middle of the scrumptious meal came the call. Three days before I had gone for the interview that I knocked the sock off it. It would have been a great disappointment if the call was let me know that they chose to go with someone else.
Despite my confidence levels I was still very nervous. I went ahead and picked up the call, “Hello, Yes this is Debora speaking”. “I was calling to ask you if you are still interested in the job”, the other voice said. “Yes definitely Im very interested”, I said. I would have been more enthusiastic but it hadn’t registered yet. The call ended, I told my sister that I got the job. She was really excited, but it still hadn’t registered yet that I had gotten the job. I said my “thank you’s “ as I did to everyone who congratulated me, as that is what everyone is supposed to do. I gave my gratitude to God for His provision, but there still wasn’t that excitement that I should feel. I began to wonder what was wrong. I really was excited about the job when I went for the interview.
The next step that I had to take was to give my two weeks notice. As it was Friday evening I wouldn’t have done that. Come Monday, I went to give my two weeks notice and thats when it hit me. I for real got the job, I don’t have to work this crappy job anymore. I almost broke down due to being overwhelmed by the excitement. I had had enough with my job that there wasn’t any motivation to go to work. I would dread going into my shift. But I tell you what, I serve a Mighty God. A God who never sleeps nor slumbers. He answers our prayers and He never leaves us nor forsakes us in our times of need.
I realized how blessed I am that I got a job even before I graduated with my bachelors degree. I began to think how many people graduated and had to go for months almost years trying to get a job worth their degree, and I didn’t. It is not something to be taken for granted. I am reminded of the scripture,
You might be in a situation that are you are not seeing a way out, He is reminding you that He is with you. I couldn’t tell you how many positions I applied to, but the right one came along. But you have to trust Him enough to do His will.
24 definitely started on a very high note, i am ready to see what lessons, experiences, growth, success, that it has in store for me.
