Today I interviewed for a part-time administrative assistant job and ended up with an offer—which I accepted. So now, I have two jobs and will be working 50-60 hours a week. Yikes and yay!
The additional income will be a blessing for which I don’t mind working. I love my work! Even though sometimes I have to remind myself how much I love my job, I’m actually kinda good with computers and enjoy the creative outlet. True, it may not be what I want to do for the rest of my life, but here’s to jobs that pay the rent! And the student loans. And buy groceries…
The LORD has always provided for His people’s needs. One of my favorite stories is the gift of manna given to Israel in the wilderness. What always struck me about that story is that while God sent the bread, the people still had to go out and get it.
Perhaps I inherited that famous Puritan work ethic from my Huguenot ancestors. At the very least, “seek and ye shall find, work and ye shall prosper—these were the watch words of my education, the ethos of my tender years” and they’ve stuck. I would feel dishonest if I didn’t work for my daily bread which God provides. I’m very grateful for this new job!
