I should be in bed right now, but my mind is racing. That, or the coffee I drank a few hours ago is keeping me up. Anyways, lots going on right now.
I officially got the management job I set out for a couple of months ago. Our new coffee shop will open the first week of December, and I’m downright thrilled about it. Nervous? Yes. But excited. It will be my store, my staff. That’s crazy to me! Sometimes I think, how in the world will I be able to do this? But the Lord has brought me this far, and I know He will carry me through. What a blessing this job will be.
Church-hunting is another activity as of late. To be honest, it’s gotten rather stressful and tiring. I’ve only visited a couple but I’m just ready to pick one and be done with it. But I know I can’t rush the process. I have a couple more to visit, and then one to re-visit, so I’m trying to be patient with that. I want the right church, but I also know it won’t feel perfect either. I hope to have some sort of confirmed feeling of peace in it, but I know it won’t feel like home right away either. I was okay for a while with the knowledge of my church ending, but last week it hit me like a ton of bricks. I missed going and knowing everyone. I missed my family…still do. But I know this is necessary and it will be rough for a while, but this too shall pass.
Other than those things at the forefront of my mind, I am constantly distracted. By everything and everyone. Almost to the point where the still silence is deafening. So, I am trying to get a handle on it. Anything that distracts or leads to distractions must go. I have no will-power, so here I am. We shall see how it goes…I’m praying the Lord challenges me through this and brings me much perspective on things.
