Last weekend I had a very tearful phone call with my best friend. I felt like everything in my life was completely out of control. I never had time for anything. I work a 40 hour week, but add 2.5 hours a day of travelling to that and we’re looking at closer to 50. So my usual routine after getting home from work is eat. shower. sleep. I felt like work was consuming my life, and I had no idea what to do. I wasn’t going to church, I wasn’t studying for the GRE and worst of all I wasn’t seeing or talking to friends, nor did I have the energy to make the effort with my work colleagues and go out after work. What do you do in that situation?
Well, I prayed about it, and I know I had at least two other people praying for me about it too. And you know what? It got better? I let God take control and He did and He helped me. A lot.
This last week has been great, I went from hating my job the week before to liking it again. I went out for dinner with the girls from work, and it was really great evening, time well spent, getting to know them better, building valuable friendships. I went to a different church last Sunday, which is much closer to home, I can go every week, even if every other week I’ll be 30 minutes late, I’ll be able to go and actually be a part of the church and socialising and fellowshipping with people there. On top of all that, I’ve found time to study for the GRE. But most importantly, I’ve been remembering to keep my Bible in my bag, and I have a good 30 minutes each way, to and from work, to read it. Even if it is a little strange to have my quiet time on the train into work it seems to be working.
