At the beginning of the year, some of you may remember that I faced a big decision on a job. It was a position that offered a great salary and benefits but one that I knew I wouldn’t enjoy.
I ended up turning down that job after a lot of prayer. I felt that God was leading me to continue my business and ministry. That decision was very clear. This one, is tougher.
I’m contemplating a job offer that would uproot my family and move us to a new city. It’s a terrific job and one that I know I would enjoy. I’ve been thinking a lot this week, and praying a lot too. This decision is a lot tougher.
It’s in a city I love and have longed to work in for years. It’s doing something I enjoy doing. And equally important, it would bring a steady paycheck.
At times this week I’ve leaned both ways. One minute I’m convinced I should take the job, sell the house, move my family and start over. The next minute, I’m convinced we should stay.
Just when I thought I had decided to put a For Sale sign in front of our new house (one we’ve been in only a month), I had meetings yesterday with several clients who want videos produced by the end of the year. This seems to tell me that I should turn down the offer and stay the course.
A decision must be made in the next 24 hours. I still don’t know.
