Revolving Door

November 28, 2007

revolvingdoor.jpgSome people are coming in. Some people are going out. That pretty much summed up the scene at the job this week. My colleague asked me, “Did you notice that?…What do you think is going?” We both knew. One by one, co-workers entering the conference room to hear the news. Some have been on the job longer than I have. Some were fairly new. Bottomline, newbie or oldtimer, no one wants to be laid off…especially before the holidays. Boooo!

I remember the feeling…the shock all too well. An emergency conference call in an hour? Hmmm. The telephone was my revolving door six years ago. Actually, me and hubby both lost our jobs….and everything else our bucks bought back then. We had alot of growing up to do, learning that our bucks meant nothing without each other, and that our source is God, not our jobs.

And now, while some are going out — God allows me to come in. Offered a new position (different dept. than the layoffs) with more benefits, pay, freedom, responsibility (uh oh). Wow, I’m sooooo thankful. Could have been me. So glad God chose to walk me into a new chapter in my professional career. And you know what’s funny, this position “restores” me back to my pre-layoff era financially. Another chance to be a better steward over so much given. I’m not the same materialistic me I was 6-7 years ago…I believe I can handle it this time…I’m ready. Ashe.Selah

    His ways we cannot fathom, no wonder He is called Ka-bi-o-ko-si (Kabiyesi). Congrats
