Things were not going well for me for a long time. Earlier this year I went through the Steps of Freedom, and it was really helpful for me. I finally let go of everything I was thinking that was causing me harm.
I went back to my old job, as I had missed it (it's fun and a nice environment, and I always felt like I belonged and that it was something I was good at). I felt like God wanted me to be content with what I'd had, and actually make a difference there this time. Since it's the bookstore at ASU, I have a lot of opportunities to help with ministry there as well.
God has been blessing me with opportunities to be helpful to others, and I feel like He's teaching me not only to be obedient and to do things I'm not entirely comfortable with because I'm shy, but also to be less selfish, and to think of and listen to others more.
It's been busy, but I'm happy. Next week, I should be less stressed, and maybe then I will share more here.
