It was the best of times, and the worst of times.

Today is the last day for me here at Solid Source. The company that took me to Africa, and saw the grace that is there in the worst of conditions. The company where I learned the difference between raster and vector and how to use them. The place where I decided to come back to church and give it another go; the time where I met my just about to be wife, and people who I was able to produce three shows at the fox theatre for. I have been in a wonderful place and God has used this time for me to grow, spiritually and professionally. I know that I would not understand what I have found in Amy to be so amazing if I wasn’t in this stage of life. I have learned and taught myself so many things. I am all mixed up about leaving.

On one hand I am excited for the new experiences, and the end of some of the hassles I deal with here. I have seen a lot come and go, people loving and hating this place. I know we all both love and hate a lot of our jobs, even at the same time. But Solid Source was good to me and was very helpful in many ways. From the new car, new talents, and new places I have been. I have loved them all; I will miss this place and some of the people.

On the other hand, I am nervous; nervous that I could be making a mistake. I know I truly believe God is leading me away from Solid Source, you know there is a small thought that maybe you are dumb to do this 22 days before you get married. I am glad Amy and I had come to grips with what this means to leave here and find the next path for the next season in our life. But you know God brought her all the way from New York to be here in my life. I am sure he is going to lead my life in the new direction. This is the time I need to leave I cannot and will not allow us to start our life together in a position where I do not feel happy, challenged, or good about my work. She deserves me to be happy, challenged, and confident in my work.

So now I move on and look for other things, I have some leads and I definitely have the ability. I just keep praying and trusting that the next step will be the correct step.

I guess the one thing that SSR gave me, was the confidence to believe in myself, and confidence to know who I am and that God REALLY does love me.

So thank you God, for bringing this into my life, and thank you for giving me the courage to leave it behind and the ability to stand firm and walk away with my head held high.

Moving Parts

Had a wonderful weekend, yesterday didn’t do much of anything, honestly it was wonderful. So today is 33 days until I get married, not a whole lot left to do. I am so excited to get married. Sometimes it is hard to believe and still seems like it is so far away. We have finished out pre-marital mentoring, and now I just need to get my tux fitted and some odd and ends then we will be there. Outside 

of that, I have moved and put in a resignation at the company I work for. I know a lot of you have asked, “Why would I leave a Job like this in this economy?” Honestly the only answer I have is I truly believe God is leading me on a path away from Solid Source. I have loved working there and learning the things I have learned. But it is time to move on. I would be a fool to stay when I and others believe God is saying move on. At least this way I leave on my own terms and not forced out the door.

The timing seems a little weird, I know. But even though I have 11 days left at Solid Source and 33 till I am married I am not worried. I am standing firm in what I have done and I am letting God move me in the right direction and into the right position. I have been on 12 interviews, and submitted over 100 resumes in the past two weeks. I feel confident everything will work out like it always does.

I haven’t updated my blog in a while. I have been contemplating where I should steer it. The good thing about the trip to Africa, leaving Solid Source, Getting Married, finishing Agent Appreciation Day, and searching for a job is that I haven’t had the time to dive into the politics. I know what’s going on but I am not brewing over it all day.

So for now, I am continuing looking for a job, finish everything for the wedding, and continue getting excited for what God has in store for both Amy and I in our lives ahead. Cause in a couple years, this transition will be the best thing for me. And the stress of not having a job will long be forgotten.





I bless the rains down in Africa!
