Temporary Home

It’s been awhile since I wrote a real post. I hope you’ve thoroughly enjoyed my recent stories though! It seems like my life is either incredibly dull or much, much too exciting. Oh well…perhaps someday I’ll find a nice healthy balance of both. :)

The big news as of late is that someone has actually contacted me about a possible job. A few months ago I signed up to a website that helps hook families up with nannies. The site offers other opportunities to work with special needs, housesit, tutor, etc. I signed up to find either families who needed a nanny or families who needed assistance with special needs individuals. A couple days ago a lady sent me a message telling me that she is interested and would like to meet me. As exciting as it is to (finally) be contacted by someone I am having many mixed emotions. The job isn’t really consistent. Basically it’s a family wanting assistance while the husband is traveling for Navy responsibilities. Although these responsibilities take him out of town fairly often there is no way for me to know exactly how much I’ll actually get to work each month. The pay would be good but would it be enough to cover the various bills and loans I have to pay each month?

The uncertainties leave me with several thoughts and questions. If offered it am I supposed to take this job? Should I wait and see what else God might have for me? My current financial situation makes me feel like I would be crazy not to take the job if offered. At the same time I’ve been working on putting all my trust and faith in God and the fact that He will provide things for me in His timing so perhaps I should wait??

First and foremost I want to be following God’s will for my life-even if that means remaining in the waiting stage of the job hunt for a little bit longer.

It is comforting to remember that "This is my temporary home. It's not where I belong. Windows and rooms that I'm passing through. This is just a stop, on the way to where I'm going. I'm not afraid because I know this is my temporary home."

I would greatly appreciate your support and prayers as I continue on this crazy journey! :)


  1. We know exactly what you mean! I just accepted a job as a worship leader out in Iowa. Which is awesome! But there were no gleaming lights, no trumpets, just the hope that the doors that open in our lives are along the path God has for us.

  2. True words...Yay for a job!! Are you guys excited!? I am really happy for you and Emily!

  3. Prayn for you Sara!
