Let me share with you how our good Lord has recently worked in my life. The blessings I am now reaping was the result of prayer and faith plus more prayer and faith. I promise to make it short and interesting and not bore you till you reach the last word in this entry.
I shifted to a more humane career recently. I define it as humane because working for more than four years in the call center industry has made me sickly. The pay was tremendously bigger compared to the conventional job you could think of. My tax would amount to an astounding 6k+ (sometimes more)! And knowing that my hard earned money only goes to the pockets of our horrendous politicians depresses me. I resigned without any clue as to what my next job will be. I was tired of that industry and was literally dragging myself to work everyday. Sometimes I thought I was acting like a mediocre.
I looked for jobs I can do from home. Similarly, it was exceedingly convenient (for someone who uses the wheelchair full time) to simply do the work in pajamas! Gone were the days when my sleep was less than seven hours or missed meal times with my family. Consequently, my Dad need not wake up at three in the morning to fetch me from work. Though he wasn't whining, I knew he prayed silently that I have a "normal" schedule. Hah, if only life was that simple.
It has been one month now since I started working as a web content writer and an ESL instructor to the Japanese. Yes, you heard me right. I am having two jobs. Isn't He amazing?! I am having these jobs and loving every moment of my life! I am at my happiest now. I research or write three articles with 500 words per day and teach five hours at night for five days concurrently. And I plan to do this for the longest time.
These blessings did not come to me overnight. I was anxious. I had apprehensions and doubts. I still feel these emotions creeping from time to time. I talk to myself and wondered if I'll ever manage? But again, I am reminded to be grateful. I have prayed with unwavering faith and He had granted this desire.
Below are some posters I found meaningful to my entry. I hope these inspires you. Which one is your favorite?
