If you’ve known me for any length of time, you know a couple of things about me:
• My roommates always seem to get married
• I am often finding new roommates & warning them marriage will quickly ensue by living with me.
• I love South Carolina
• I go to South Carolina once or twice a year
• I love my job
• I’m a safe person.
• I don’t like to make big decisions if it involves much risk.
Well. My roommate gets married in October- which means I’m looking to move again.
But here’s the kicker.
I’m looking to make a big move.
South Carolina, to be exact.
Why South Carolina? Well. Here are a few things.
My grandparents live there as well as my aunt/uncle/cousins
Ever since I was in High School- I wanted to move to South Carolina.
Every time I actually THOUGHT about it and started to put feet to that plan- fear overwhelmed me.
Definitely felt unsettled about it.
For the past 10 years, I have revisited that same thought… “Could I move there?”
Every time…Loved the idea- but never felt peace about it.
So when my roommate from 2010 got engaged and prepared to marry- I started thinking about SC again.
Didn’t feel the normal uneasy feeling.
Ended up moving in with a friend, Rachel (who, by the way, has been a GREAT roommate) who I knew was seriously dating someone and that marriage would soon follow.
When I made the move to this apartment with her- rather than signing a year lease at a different place- I just knew that the Lord would be doing something big in October.
Again. Revisited the SC thoughts. Still felt peace.
So. For the past month- I’ve been hitting the pavement in a BIG way looking for a job in South Carolina.
Which brings me to my other point.
I love my job. In a BIG way I love it.
The Lord totally provided this job for me in May of 2010 in the most incredible way.
My first thoughts regarding moving were “How could I leave a job that I LOVE and one that the Lord so incredibly provided for me?”
But as quickly as the question was posed- it was answered with “I’d do it all again for you.”
In the middle of even typing this out- I just got an email from a friend saying “Are you dead set on moving to SC?”
I’m not dead set on anything if the Lord decides to close doors.
But I do know- that in the meantime- I’m looking for Jobs in Greenville, SC.
So. If you know anyone out in that area that might be able to help set me up with a job- Let me know!
Questions? Comments? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
In addition- I’d love your prayers! This is a BIG deal for me.
My parents and sister live in Texas.
I’ve never NOT lived in Texas.
I have THE most amazing friends a girl could ask for in Texas.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE my church and church family.
But I feel as though it’s time to step out.
Pray for me? It would be appreciated.
