Though, there was still loss.
I had planned to stick around another year to pay my way through college. I finally had an inviting foliage filled cubicle. But the hardest part of leaving was I had wonderful coworkers who had become my friends and who I greatly appreciated sharing life with.
Everything is changing. I just finished my last class at MHCC (13 credits of Spanish in 10 weeks. Possibly the toughest load I have ever taken in the university). I have signed a lease on an apartment in downtown Portland. I have completed registration and orientation for Portland State University.
I had intended for my job to provide me comfort. Comfort in financial security, comfort in the routine, comfort in complacency, comfort in my own self sufficiency.
In the moments following the news, staring blankly at my computer screen, I gave up my life to Jesus. I knew this only added to the drastic changes occurring and I began to grasp how God was/is/will be using this in my life. He is giving me an opportunity, beckoning me, to lean on him that much more going into this new season of life.
