My life has been changing a lot lately. I can honestly say I never thought I would be at the point in my life that I am now, I just thought things would be well... different. I am learning God's precious and perfect timing and I have developed an even greater love for the needs of His people. In the past few weeks I was put on notice with my job of 5 years with the Leon County Property Appraisers Office. Due to county budget cuts, all OPS in our office will be losing their jobs by the end of our fiscal year of September 30th. In essence, it goes a little something like this.... find a new job and get out because DOR could re-review the budget and could come back at any given time and kick us out sooner than September. Anyone who knows me knows that I am a planner. The practical side of me was thinking "seriously, in this economy how in the world am I going to find a new job, college graduates with legit degrees cannot find jobs and people are losing their jobs left and right. yea right, I will not find a new job" but then the Holy Spirit grabbed hold of my heart and when I was given the news, I had a peace. I know that it was the peace of the Holy Spirit telling me "it's all going to be ok."
I was given notice 3 weeks ago today and in 3 weeks time, my God has truly made himself know. Last Sunday night, my mom was talking to our cousin on the phone who is a paralegal and she mentioned to my mom about this firm she knows that loves to hire college students. She said, "Brooks and LeBoeuf is an awesome Christian law firm, they gather together as a firm each morning and pray as a staff and they truly care about peoples eternity with Christ and I think it would be a great fit for Haley." I emailed Brooks and LeBoeuf last Sunday night at 7:30, Monday morning at 9:30 they called me and wanted me to come in for an interview, Monday at 11:00 I go in for my interview, they asked me how much money I wanted to make per hour, how much I wanted to work with my school schedule, and hired me as their receptionist on the spot!!!! Even though we have all been let go from LCPA, I still felt as though the respectable thing to do was give my 2 weeks notice. I gave my notice last Monday after my interview and my last day with LCPA is this Friday, May 13th. I have started training at the law firm and I love it. My family is going to Destin the 14-17th so my official start date with the firm is Monday, May 23rd. In today's economy, going straight from one job to the next is unheard of, all I can say is it's a God thing. How great is our God?!
Never worry about anything. But in every situation let God know what you need in prayers and requests while giving thanks.
