Day 3 -- An Answer to Prayer!!

Thursday, April 19, 2012

Well, discovered that God's plans don't mesh with mine most of the time!

Susan's plans = I'd be living in a bigger city with a $40,000+ job where I'd be using the Master's degree I worked to hard to earn and am now paying for.

God's plans = I'm living in my hometown with my Mom (for the time being) and will start a job on Monday (in a bigger town, not quite the city) that pays nowhere NEAR what I'd like to be making. Since God's all-knowing and all-powerful, I'll trust that He knows best!

Exciting challenges are ahead for me and the company I'm going to work for! I will be starting out working through a temporary agency and then after 90 days or so will be on their payroll. It will be SO nice to have insurance again! And I'll only have to pay 25% of that!

Thank you all for the prayers!! Now to get out and mow my Mom's lawn before it rains!! (Praying hard for that!!)

    Congrats on getting a job. It might not have been in your plans, but God knows what is best. It will all work out for you. The insurance is also a big plus. Good luck

    Yep... God's plans aren't always ours!

    Congrats on the job. Is your degree in something you can do as a hobby? Sometimes hobbies turn into opportunities.

    I've been able to help my Mom out by watching the house while she's in South Carolina this week visiting my brother. She travels a lot more now that she's retired, so I can give her peace of mind while she's gone.

    Played with some figures earlier today and realized that the pay issue isn't quite as bad as I thought. She and I will come up wtih a budget (something I've been HORRIBLE about in the past) and see where things go.

    Thanks for the prayers!!

    It is great to have insurance! I am so glad you got the job even though it isn't what you were hoping for.

    I am wondering if your Mom needs your help and that is part of God's plan.

    I wonder what unexpected opportunity(ies) this change of plans will raise for you.
