Season of Change

For the past 4 1/2 years, I have loved my job. I loved the hundreds of people I befriended. I loved the company I worked for. I loved the energy, the busy-ness, and the passion. I felt like I was good at my job! The problem came when so much of my self-worth and my identity became wrapped up in my job. It was impossible to properly balance my life with my fast-paced job selling homes at Ross Bridge. I always found a way to justify it... the reward I felt was so great that it seemed to outweigh the harship of the journey. But the truth is, over the past few months, my heart has not been into it. I could feel the atmosphere at work changing in many ways, and I realized that the job I loved was becoming more of a burden than a blessing.

Thursday, my time as an agent at Ross Bridge came to an end. While I’m anxious to see where my next step in life will lead me, I KNOW this is the right thing for our family, and I have an unbelievable peace. God has our lives in his hands and I know that he has a plan! I know that God wants my identity wrapped up in HIM and not on the work I do to pass the time while I'm here on earth.

My prayer is for God’s guidance and wisdom. Pray that Justin and I hear God and that we LISTEN to the direction he wants to lead our lives.

I knew this was coming the minute you told me you were expecting! You're a wonderful mommy and Hayes is so lucky to have someone with all that drive and passion solely directed on him now! Can't wait to see where God leads you!
