Well, my first week at my new job is in the books! I am excited for how God is changing my heart and how he is working things out!
I'm so ready for the first few weeks to be over... training is never fun (in my opinion) but it's a must. Fortunately for me, all of my banking knowledge has came flooding back, so I mostly just have to learn their system... which is really great news!
Lots of changes will be happening within the next few months and though it won't all be easy, I know that God put me exactly where I am for a reason!
After a long first week, last night I went to LifeChurch for our Singles Night Live... it was an incredible night of worship and fellowship with other singles! Although I was so tired and honestly thought about just going home and skipping all together, I knew I needed to go... and I must say, I'm glad I did. God truly moved in my heart and I was so blessed by the night. It was exactly what I needed to end my tiring week.
I got to catch up on some sleep by sleeping in this morning,which I can't tell you how great it felt to not have to wake up to an alarm! haha! Tonight I'm excited for church and to hear an incredible message! It's going to be a great evening!
ANDDDDDDD NEXT FRIDAY IS MY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!! WOOOOP WOOOOOP! Although this birthday will be nothing like my usual birthday (week) I am thankful to have a job and family/friends that support me! So HAPPY BIRTHDAY WEEK TO ME! I believe I will celebrate by getting a Coconut Mocha Frap EVERY single day this week! :) (That's Starbucks new frap and it's heavenly)
Well, I hope everyone has a great rest of weekend and a wonderful week! Thanks again for your continued prayers! I appreciate each and every one of you!

"Great is Thy faithfulness!" "Great is Thy faithfulness!"
Morning by morning new mercies I see;
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided—
"Great is Thy faithfulness," Lord, unto me!
I woke up this morning singing this hymn. The neat thing about the words in this song is that it is such a reminder to how faithful God is!
I know I haven't posted lately so let me catch you up to speed. About a month ago I applied for a job at IBC bank and after God teaching me a little patience, I found out yesterday that I got the position. I am now the Branch Manager at the Gillardia branch in OKC. While I waited for the phone call, I kept praying that God would provide (I knew he would but I just needed the peace in seeing him provide for me) and let me tell you, he provided over and over and over again as he always does (that I'm usually too stressed to see). In April God kept telling me it was time for me to join a LifeGroup (which is like Sunday School any night during the week for all different types of people with different interest and what not) So, my friend Megan and I picked a "singles" LifeGroup and jumped right in. The first night I was there, I met some really nice people and at the end of the night when we were asked if we had any prayer request of course mine was that God would provide me with a job. The next week at LifeGroup a man named James told me that he had been praying for me and God had told him that he needed to tell me about some Branch Manager positions at the bank he works for. I was very appreciative and went the very next day to apply. The following Monday I went in for an interview with the Area Manager and things seemed to go great... then became the waiting... finally after a few minor issues everything got ironed out and I was offered the position to start Monday. (In the meantime) While I was waiting on an answer, I kept applying for jobs knowing that my money would soon becoming to an end and if I didn't have something(anything) I would be in major trouble! Thankfully, God is faithful and I received a notice saying that my benefits were being extended for a few more weeks!!!!! GOD IS SO GOOD! That means, that I will only have to go without a paycheck for two weeks!!!! AND I'll still be able to pay the bills I have because at the end of the month is my birthday and birthday money always helps! =) Isn't it incredible to see how God works and provides? I am beyond thankful for where God has put me and I know he will continue to carry me through.
I appreciate each and everyone of your prayers!
Here's to another new chapter in my life!!!!
I hope you all have a fantastic rest of the week!
