Today I really got to thinking. My hubby asked me this morning if I would be willing to relocate for his “dream job.” For him it is a job with a company he has always admired, loves the software product development they do, and thinks their office management style is amazing. So I started thinking….what is my dream job?
I have always loved acting, I dabble in singing, and if I had ever had the chance to be on Broadway I would have done it in a heartbeat. But for none of those had I truly yearned. None of them had I prayed over and over for the “desires of my heart.” (Psalm 37:4). So it hits me today, I have my dream job. I am a wife and a mother. Now if you’ve known me any length of time, you know I used to joke about getting them in the right order. I wanted children so badly. I am so grateful I married a man who shared my dream, who works solely for our income, and never once complains at the idea of not having two incomes. Even now as we struggle to make ends meet, and he searches feverishly for a job; he has not asked me to take on any of the financial burden.
I ask myself, am I willing to sacrifice, am I willing to give up the comforts of my little world to give my husband his “dream job.” The jury is still out on this one. However I am in prayer over it; as is he, since he realizes his “dream” may not be God’s plan.(Jeremiah 29:11-13) He also realizes that God may completely change his dream, who knows. Until then, I am very thankful both to God and my husband for giving me the chance at my dream job!!
