Answered Prayers

So, I got a job!

Woo! I quite literally have been praying for a new job for almost as long as I've been at my current job.
I work in Human Resources at a potato processing plant and its a difficult job.
The plant runs 24/7, and our office is manned 24/7 as well.
I've worked a lot of nights, weekends, back shifts, swing shifts, 12s, etc.

Currently I have a pretty sweet schedule, and work Monday-Friday,
pretty much whatever hours I want, as long as I get  my 40 in!

Unfortunately though, as soon as someone in our office leaves,
I will go back to working shift work, which will include weekends again.

Also, our plant is scheduled to close at the end of 2013,
and although they are building a new plant, my job is not guaranteed.
Because the plant closure is looming, I think all of us are looking for new jobs.

SO with all of that being said, I received THREE calls for interviews last week.
All of the jobs have their perks, and also their downfalls.

I interviewed Friday after work for an HR Manager position,
 and heard from them 15 minutes after they left!
They offered me the position, and asked me how soon I could start.

So, here I am, on one hand, on cloud 9, thankful for this answered prayer!
On the other hand, I am feeling extremely anxious about leaving my current company.

I don't know if I have an unhealthy fear of change, or if God is trying to tell me
"Not yet, this isn't your job."

Some of my anxiety comes from my health condition.
Because I have a "pre-existing condition" I wonder if my new insurance
can deny me coverage?
I also worry about switching Rheumatologists, because I adore mine!

I have to do a little soul searching and praying for some wisdom and discernment.
Right now I don't know if this is good excitement and nervousness about a new start,
or if this anxiety has a valid reason behind it.

  1. Congrats on the calls about the interviews! I hope that you will either be able to keep your current job or find a new one that is even better. :-)

    I kinda feel the same way as you right now- I'm a college student and a few weeks ago I found out that the bakery that I've spent the past two summers working at (and LOVING my job) is closing. :-( So this coming weekend I'll be doing lots of job searching, oh what fun! Haha. Hoping it will pay off!
