God Emailed Me

>> Thursday, May 21, 2009

Earlier this week I was perusing architectural websites and decided I should take a look at what the company I used to work for had going on. I worked in Nashville for two years before marrying the wonderful Mr. Sabbe and relocating to Memphis. So I’m clicking around and notice they have had their annual company celebration where new owners, associates, and senior associates are announced. I’m scrolling through the pictures and low and behold, a designer who started on the same day as me, 5 short years ago, made associate this year. Needless to say, I was a bit jealous and started to think to myself are people my age old enough to be associates in large architectural firms? The thought had never even crossed my mind.

Then I started to feel sorry for myself. I felt sorry for myself for moving to Memphis . I felt sorry for myself, thinking that the company I work with now does not have a well established interiors division. I felt sorry for myself because I cancelled an interview 3 years ago with a firm that did. I felt sorry for myself because I don't have an interior design mentor to help accomplish goals like making associate before the age of 30. I felt sorry for myself because the economy is bad and I don’t want to have to job hunt next month….you see the spiral I was spinning down…….and THEN I got an email {from this website I subscribe to} and it said...

Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
- 1 Peter 5:6-7
And then I was ok again.

Wow! I need an e-mail like that right about now. I'm going through about the same thing, minus the interior sesign part that is. =)

Hi! I'm following your blog that I think I found through your FB. Love it! Hate to see you move but it will be worth the adventure!! I just read your post and realized that your thoughts on career, the design world, etc in this economy are the same as my thoughts. I like your bible verse post and I think I'll go over there and subscribe to it also!

Best wishes on your move!!!

Oh, that gave me chills. I find God speaks to me all the time, especially when I am feeling sorry for myself.

I have to remind myself all the time about God's timing, it is perfect and when I start to look around and get anxious I remind myself that I am where he wants me to be and on the path he has set.

I hope you are feeling better! I think it is wonderful that you get to live in different places and have great experiences. I am so jealous you are going to Boston!
