Life is exciting and busy at the Dzhuga household. I accepted a full time position at the kids school doing finance/bookkeeping. It is what I went to school for so I am excited to be able to use my degree. I’m really excited about this season and being able to work. The last full time position that I had was about 10 years ago so this is all going to be new and different for me. I have been blessed enough to be only working part time and doing what I love most; which is: writing, spending time helping people, time as a wife and mama and just doing life with the people that I love.
Ironically I woke up on the first morning of my new life thinking “do I really have to go to work or am I in some kind of a weird dream”...ha! as it turned out, this had become my new norm and that made me supper excited.
I was doing what I thought was God’s plan with real estate but He brought a bookkeeping job in my life instead. I mean “He brought it” I was not even looking for a job and just like that I found myself waking up at 6:30am to go to work.
The Lord has been preparing my heart to be in the work force which produced income. I know this may seem silly to you but since I graduated, I have hardly brought any income into our household. The really cool thing about my new job is that I have wanted to work for a nonprofit for a while and I am so thankful for this opportunity.
To be honest, when the job was presented to me, my immediate response was no way and my husband’s response was the same. Me being available during the day for personal and ministry matters has been the norm in our household.
What is the Lord doing?
I have been in a season of not understanding God’s order and His will for me.
I have just gone through real estate school but had not been successful in passing the exam. I know that I am supposed to do real estate because our family feels called to this line of work.
I don’t know why I have not been successful in passing the real estate exam, I just don’t understand. I do know that God is in control and I would rather live a life full of questions with God then a life trying to control everything on my own without Him.
“Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.”
In this blog post I wanted to share that my life is not perfect and that I don’t have everything together. Most of the time everything is all over the place in my life and the life of my family. I hope that this post encourages someone to know that even when it seems like others have it all together, they most likely don’t and you are not alone. It’s the acceptance of being ok with the fact that things are not always okay. In my season, I guess it’s just where we are and I fully trust and obey the Lord.
Coming from a place of not even wanting to get into real estate and allowing God to transform my heart into enjoying the industry only to come to a dead end as I have not passed the exam.
What is the Lord preparing you for? What has He been preparing you for quite some time now? What are you doing about it?
