Life over the past year has been a crazy adventure. Moving to Winnipeg to moving back home and having no job to starting a new job.
What I have been up to this year?
Well if you read my previous posts, I lived in Winnipeg, MB. It was a 9 month internship but sadly I was only there for 3. It was a very hard decision to leave there but through prayer and talking to people, I had made the decision not to continue with the internship. With the support of friends and family I made it through one of the hardest times in my life. With coming home I thought it was going to be hard, since I had to tell everyone why I returned so early, but I was surprised at how supportive everyone was. I was so grateful. God has put some amazing people in my life. I do not regret going to Winnipeg because it was a great changing experience for me. I met some amazing people who I care about very much. While I was there I have realized a lot things about my life. I truly believe that God called me there to get closer to him and get challenged in my faith. I really have grown in my relationship with God and continue to grow everyday.
When I came home from Winnipeg I looked and looked and looked for a job. Nothing. So for 3 months I had no job and not much to do. So I read. A LOT. I made a new year’s resolution to read all the books I own that I haven’t read yet, which was a lot. I had a list of 50 books. I have added at least another 20 books since. So I have read a fair amount of books, I’ve read around 20-25 since January. Which is a lot for me since I didn’t like to read that much. But now I find it very relaxing. For the 3 months without working, I had to rely a lot on God and remember that He will provide. I applied to over 15 jobs and had 2 or 3 interviews. One of them was for camp Kingswood for the Administrative Position. I had the interview but then found out I didn’t get the job. Which was fine because they got someone who was more qualified for the job. I was happy for them! So I found out I didn’t get the job and 2-3 days later a new job opportunity came along. The owners told my dad about the job and then told me to call the manager there and so I did. Within the month of march I called to find out about the job, had an interview and then started a new job, Wheaton’s. God provided MAJORLY. I was very excited for this new opportunity to try something I had never done before. It was for the administrative position. Now that I think about it, it worked out quite well. I went from applying at camp for the same kind of position. God was working. The position was just a temporary one, but it has turned into a full time position. I was only supposed to be there for a few months but I’ve been there for 6. God is AWESOME.
If I’m not working, I’m home. Right now my life consists of work, home, church, and youth group. Which isn’t so bad. The Church has been very helpful for me in my walk with God. During the summer months we studied The 10 Commandments (series called Live the 10) and now we are doing a study on Romans 12 called r12: True Spirituality. During the Live the 10 series, I learned things that I didn’t know before about The 10 Commandments, which was awesome. I love to learn new things. That’s what helps us grow. Being back at my home church has been wonderful. I like the community there and the church just keeps on growing in size and in faith.
As of right now, this very moment, I am happy with my life and where it is headed. God has been faithful and forgiving, and he constantly loves. I can’t wait to see what God has in store for me this year.
I am going to leave with a song that has meant something to me lately:
Your Love Never Fails
Nothing can separate
Even if I ran away
Your love never fails
I know I still make mistakes
But You have new mercies for me everyday
Your love never fails
You stay the same through the ages
Your love never changes
There may be pain in the night but joy comes in the morning
And when the oceans rage
I don’t have to be afraid
Because I know that You love me
Your love never fails
The wind is strong and the water’s deep
But I’m not alone in these open seas
Cause Your love never fails
The chasm is far too wide
I never thought I’d reach the other side
But Your love never fails
You make all things work together for my good
Thanks for reading. I hope to continue writing and letting you know what I’ve been learning.
