I'm very thankful that I found a job so quickly, even though the pay is less than I had hoped for. In our state's economy, just having any job is a Godsend, so to speak. After getting to know the staff and my new boss little bit, I'm excited about the job. So, if you need an apartment in the Grand Rapids area, talk to me.
I also have been thinking a lot about the spiritual gifts I have and how I have given my life to the cause of Christ. So I want to make it clear that my going back to a "regular job" is in no way my attempt to remove myself from ministry. I plan on taking just as much initiative in people's lives to help them become like Christ. That is my heart...that is what I love to do...and it doesn't take a job in a church to make that happen. In fact, it may actually free me up more to do the kind of work God has called me to do. So with that said...it's Christmas time...and I have a tree to decorate.
