“Trust in the Lord with all your heart.  Lean not on your own understanding, In all your ways acknowledge Him.  He will direct your paths.”  Proverbs 3:5-6

Ever since I was in high school I had envisioned myself as a Director or V.P. in a respected company.  Just prior to my 30th birthday, my dream job was offered to me and I accepted it.  I was not at peace with this decision, but how could I turn this job down?  This is what I had always wanted!

I began to pray and knew in my heart that this was not what God wanted for me.  I had a two year old and had just cut back my hours to spend more time with him.  Taking this job would mean working full time again.  I was stubborn and didn’t want to turn this down.

Through a series of painful incidents at work, God made it clear that this was not for me.  He told me to trust in Him and not to worry about what people thought.  I turned down the position.  One week later I found out I was pregnant with my daughter!  I eventually retired altogether.  God opened up new doors for me, allowing me the opportunity to stay home with my children and participate in the ministry at bible study.
