The Wait Continues & Thoughts on Social Justice

2 Comments

Good news. I have a job lead. I am first on the list to train and be hired for this job that pays really well, more than I’ve ever made actually. Here’s the thing though. It’ll be about 45 days before I am allowed to be trained.  The waiting continues. Another interesting tid bit is that its around that time that I’d also have to make another important vocational decision. Time will tell. I plan to make the most out of the next 45 days.

I still have temp work, although I don’t know how long that will last. I’m grateful for the help of family and prayer and support of my faith community and friends.

I want to share one last thing. In my previous post I spoke about being in a season of wanting to substantiate the things on my heart concerning social justice. I want to understand and act on what it means to live for social justice, practically. It’s my hearts desire and I believe a natural outgrowth my faith.

Today is a unique day. It is the International Day of the Eradication of Poverty . It is also a huge day for the A21 Campaign, an organization that is dedicated to the fight against modern day slavery.

Did you know, there are an estimated 27 Million human being’s in slavery? There are more slaves in the world today than at any other point at one time in world history.

Here are a few organizations that are really stepping up to the plate when it comes to this issue. If you haven’t already, educate yourself on Modern Day Slavery. Thank you for your time. Take care.

Journaling Again

2 Comments

Thank you for checking out my space. I’m new to WordPress. Up until now my online blogging presence has been here. You won’t find any one specific thing on this site. Just my experiences and reflections. Journaling is somewhat of a therapy for me and I believe I derive the most from it just by recounting and sharing.

Right now I’m in a season of my life where I am trying to substantiate what’s in my heart regarding social justice, and I also am in a place of working smaller jobs while trying to determine what full time work to do after having left a job of almost seven years.  It’s a learning and growing experience for me; I’m grateful for it. By the way, I have learned first hand what it means to leave a job without having something else lined up.  Its a trying and very risky thing. There is reward and fulfillment in trial and in consequence.I’ve seen the good and ugly of my decision.

I’m waiting for what’s next while living in the now. Its good. I’m good. Thank you for your time.
