As I type this post on my iPad whilst lying on my bed, my throat is rather sore. I know that for the past 4 days my body has been attempting to resist the flu bug from having victory over my immune system. I have been trying to rest as much as possible each time I feel like the flu bug is about to take over. The harshness of winter hasn’t helped at all. The virus thankfully hasn’t gotten to me just yet and I hope not at all.
I am bracing myself for another busy week ahead so my fingers are crossed that my immune system won’t cave in. Three full working days plus two casual night jobs. Not forgetting, 2 assignments that must be completed by the end of the week. However, despite this, I am filled with great peace and much joy within. For the past few weeks, I have seen many doors of opportunity open especially in job and networking opportunities – some way beyond my wildest dreams. As to what they are specifically, I prefer not to disclose yet. If you are a regular follower of my blog, you will learn them in bits and pieces as I narrate my journey over the next couple of months.
Every week for me is different – uni, different jobs, a change of scene, new faces and the list goes on. I thought quitting my part-time job would give me more time to myself and flexibility but it has turned out otherwise. I am busier than ever but I love all the study and work that I do especially the projects at Deaf Arts Network and teaching opportunities that present itself. It keeps me occupied with gladness of heart. Never in my life, have I enjoyed working so much and felt so energetic. I am so excited by what is to come especially the Deaf Children’s writing workshops. As I reflect on the past month, I am certain that I am infinitely and immensely blessed. God has provided in so many ways and surprised me by opening so many doors.
One verse that I have been meditating upon is Proverbs 3:5-6 that says “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight.” I find security by learning to put my trust in him and not trying to make sense of everything in my own strength for God knows me better than I know myself. He knows what is best for me because he created me and will provide everything that I need. This is of course easier said than done but I am certainly getting there by learning to apply this truth in my life.
This journey I believe will have its own challenges but I just know that I am in for a lifetime of adventure.
Stay tuned! 😉
