well I meant to be writing some stuff on a proper regular basis, but I havent.
the last couple of months have been a bit crazy, my contract at the hospital came to an end, not completely unexpected, but I was a sad at leaving there, my attempts to apply to be permanent were not successful before and it seems my career plans were meant to be some place else. Two interviews came about at my last week, one for company making switch panels, one for a large utility company, the former was the I really set my heart on and the second just didnt feel right, I got accepted for the power company doing helpdesk there, but more of a regular call centre job, as the tasks I enjoy like building good relationships with users, problem solving and learning new skills were absent here, the large concrete building had a kind of oppressive feel to it, and just a bad feeling I couldnt put my finger on meant I struggled to learn the ancient command based helpdesk software to log the calls (which were mainly password resets) meant the days dragged on and I yearned to be back supporting the health workers in my previous role. The interview for the other role that seems right at the time, I got turned down for which I was massively disappointed. The power company got fed up with me and I got the boot, learning the training was hard when they were already shortstaffed and the guy who was sat with didnt seem like training people was really his thing.
This time has meant I have had to trust in God’s plan for me like never before, and has it been hard..
In late May, I got an interview for the company I work for now making security software, this seemed really consistent with what God has planned for me, after a lot of prayer, I was accepted, the relief and joy was immense. I have been there for a month and enjoying support the users in our office, on site, and in the other offices in Europe gives plenty of variety and challenges.
I feel incredibly blessed by what God has provided me at late, I am seeing surprising things with some friends at the moment, and feel continuously surprised God has been providing so many answers to prayers recently, I think there are more exciting times ahead…
