Today, I would like to introduce you to Ashley from A Faithful Passion. Ashley writes about everything from her Faith to Job Searching (Send her a congrats on a new job!) and beauty.
Ashley has been on All That’s Glittered once before here and I am so happy to have her back again!
Take it away, Lady!
Ever tried putting an old, worn out battery into a new car? The majority of the time the car won’t work or it will work but only for a short period of time. Well, you can think of life as the same way! You can’t expect to grow and have new doors open for you by doing the same old ways over and over again… It just won’t work!
We all at one point in time held on to our old ways and didn’t want to let them go because that’s what we were used to. Yes, at times holding on to traditions and/or old ways can be beneficial but as the world progress and you become older there are better ways to get things done.
For example, I HATED going to my previous job everyday because I wasn’t happy. Banking is good job for when I was in college but now that I’ve been out of college for 2 years it wasn’t something that I wanted to do plus the people that I worked with made it even harder. I knew that something would have to give if I wanted my life to go different.
What I did for myself was to pray for clarity on what I needed to do and have faith in God. I was lead to quit my job and focus on finding one in my field of studies which is criminal justice and psychology. I applied like crazy, I know I put in over 50 applications, and continued to pray. I finally got a job in Houston in my field and I couldn’t be more happy about it! Being obedient to God and staying faithful has improved my life!
How have changing your ways assisted in new doors opening up for you? Do you think life is better now that you go about it a different way and do you still hold on to some of your own ways? Let me know in the comments below!
