“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things unseen”
My word this year was faith. This year, I noticed faith mentioned a lot in the Anglican liturgy, particularly in Scriptures read.
I had no idea how my faith would be stretched in 2012. But in August, my company announced they were closing up shop. All 260 0f us would be out of work in February. I started looking for work, not expecting faith to kick in.
You see I worked for a hospitality company, in the telecommunications end of the business. In the past, I have had considerations of interest in working at a hotel directly, but when I started looking for a new job, I started looking at retail job offerings, and fully expected to land in another call centre. I wasn’t thinking in terms of faith and what it could bring.
Boy, I underestimated what faith in God could bring. I found a job in a local hotel. I became the night auditor at a historic hotel in Fredericton. It was perfect timing for me and the hotel. I applied, was interviewed and was working at the hotel within 3 weeks of submitting my application. And recently, I found out that my new employer has been approved as the company to develop a new hotel in the city. So even more good news. This means room for growth and development, as things move forward.
I haven’t considered what 2013 has in store, except to know that I need to do the hard work of determining what form my photography business needs to take. So a growth year. Development of new ideas and making these ideas stick. And I think that gives me my word for 2013: growth.
Pray with me and encourage me. Remind me what the goal is. Will you follow my journey for the coming year?
