I’m finished with my first full week at my new job. Given the scope of my duties and how much stuff I will actually be doing, it will be quite a while before I’m fully settled in to it. The girl who previously held the job (and who will be moving into a new position at the end of the month) will be showing me the ropes, as it were, before fulling handing the reins over to me. For which I am eternally grateful. She really is the best and has been an effective teacher so far to a somewhat reluctant and apprehensive student.

Learning new things in a new environment is very difficult especially since I’m prone to nervousness and timidity. Add on to that my recent grappling with finding time and motivation to read my Bible consistently. It’s a horrible thing to admit and yet it’s the truth. In this new stage of life in which I find myself (i.e. 9-5, responsibilities, staying focused, being held accountable) I find myself in great need of an adjustment. As well as peace. Then again, I always find that more peace is a good thing.

Needless to say the next couple of months are going to be challenging. But I’m going to try not to think about them as months, rather as days. God gives us our whole life to live but He only gives it to us one day at a time. I wouldn’t be able to handle much else. And so, I will keep the following verse continually on my heart and mind: “Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.” (Matthew 6:34)
