One Phone Call Away

I told my younger brother a few days ago that it only takes one phone call to change something big in your life.

Within an hour after posting my final draft of my last post, I received a phone call offering me a job at a law firm! I’ll be doing receptionist stuff and such. Also, it’s full-time, so basically all of my immediate financial worries are over! Woo-hoo!

It’s kinda funny because I was just talking to my mom this past week about how things usually have a way of working out somehow, but until they do it’s really hard to just trust that it will be okay. I told my younger brother a few days ago that it only takes one phone call to change something big in your life. But until that call comes, it’s just faith holding you through, and that’s hard. It is insanely tedious to be patient when you can see all of your problems but you have no idea what the solution is going to be.

Now that I’m on the other side of that life-changing phone call, it’s easy to look back and say, “See, I should have just trusted all along!” But honestly, I know that the next time I’m faced with a big problem I’m still going to have trouble believing it will all work out. I guess patience is one of those things you can only learn by practice.
