Occupational Hazard

So, some of you know that my job is changing at Student Life. If you didn't know that previously, now you do. And you're pretty much caught up with how much everyone else knows. Just how is it changing, exactly, we might ask. Well, there's a few people in the process of figuring that out right now. And there is finally a time this week that it will hopefully be decided and we can all get going and move forward. But what to say about it?

I don't know. I'm not even sure what would be appropriate to say about it.

(*sigh*)

I believe in Student Life. Student Life has been extremely gracious to me and has taken amazing care of both Liza and me. I want to be there. But this whole situation has been odd. I don't even know exactly how it happened, but somehow my old/current job no longer (or soon to be no longer) exists. So, I'm in this perpetual state of waiting to find out what exactly this new position is so that I can pray and think specifically about it and try to discern if it's the right thing for me and/or Student Life.

I hope it is. Right now it just feels like I'm floundering a little bit and that people are throwing me some bones out of obligation because they don't know how it's supposed to work either.

However, I am confident we will know soon.

It just sucks 'cause this is one of those situations where you and (hopefully) God have a sense of your ministry calling together, yet you still have to weigh that against the realities of a job. I wonder what that first group of guys did back in the first century? Oh, yeah... they tossed their "jobs" out the window and acted in obedience.

Should some of us be doing the same thing?

(*pause*)

In other news I have a big doctor's appointment Thursday morning. Been keeping it on the DL. Don't want to get everyone worked up or feed into the gossip machine. But I'll keep you guys posted. I promise.

Onwards and upwards!
