A week and a half ago, I received a seemingly random text… “we have friends in the business… looking for someone to do their social media… would you consider?”
The next day, I sent an inquiry email that said something like “I have 14 years of homeschool experience… however, this might be my last year of school at home… and, oh by the way, I have never used your product.” Regardless, I got an almost immediate reply, a conference call interview, and an amazing new opportunity… I am now the social media manager of a wildly successful homeschool curriculum company.
And, it looks something like this…
but it doesn’t matter if I’m working on one device, or two, or three, or even four during the times that my phone is engaged too, because I’m always working from this place that holds my heart and the ones I love the most… home.
“This is what the Lord says: “You will be in Babylon for seventy years. But then I will come and do for you all the good things I have promised, and I will bring you home again. For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. In those days when you pray, I will listen. If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me. I will be found by you,” says the Lord. “I will end your captivity and restore your fortunes. I will gather you out of the nations where I sent you and will bring you home again to your own land.”~Jeremiah 29:11-14
I cannot tell you how many tears were shed almost a month ago when I chose to leave the job that I had come to love. I knew my God had a plan for good for me. A plan for my life that would give me a future and a hope. My little finite brain, though, could not imagine that God would have anything better for me. Yet, I knew it was the best choice for me and my situation.
Silly me. I had a temporary lapse of sanity. Who am I to forget that I serve the God of the universe? The God who, according to Ephesians 3:20, is capable of doing immeasurably more than I can ask or imagine.
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. ~Ephesians 3:20
He knows me. He knows what my immeasurably more is. Just as He knows you and what your immeasurably more is. If He is calling you to give up something you think is the best, maybe, just maybe, it’s because He has something you haven’t even considered… something immeasurably more for you too.
Trust Him. Immeasurably more is always good.
