I woke up this morning at 4:30. Read Paul's Letter to the Galatians, went through my entire closet getting out all the clothes that are too big for me now (hurray), exercised for thirty minutes, read two chapters of a D.Min. book, did the dishes, and showered. It is now 8:30 a.m. I am ready for my afternoon nap.
It is amazing how much my energy level has come up. I attribute this to two factors; 1) I am finally over being sick, 2) I feel empowered because of my move.
Energy through empowerment. This was a self-revelation for me. I had not sat down and considered it, but last night I was thinking about this move and I realized that it came about because of two factors; 1) The power and goodness of God, and 2) the fact that I started sending out my resume and beginning conversations with different conferences.
I didn't just sit around and moan about my fate (Well, I did, but not forever). I looked for possible solutions and then implemented them. I didn't wait for someone to rescue me. Somehow I had lost that sense of myself. The notion that I had the power to change my situation.
