Happy New Year! I hope that you have enjoyed a great break. We were blessed to enjoy an EXTRA long break with hubby being home:) You see, my hubby has worked at the same place the entire time I have known him, dated, engaged, married…yep…really even longer…18 years to be exact! That makes us sound really old, but he is 36 years old and just realized that he had worked at Wells Fargo for HALF OF HIS LIFE! How crazy is that?
It has been such a blessing to work for such a large company with the benefits, extra time off (because of how long he has worked there) and the consistency. But, there is one problem…my husband is amazingly talented in SO many ways that were not being met at his current job. He is someone that loves people and loves to encourage and challenge others to meet their true potential. He also is passionate about music and a super talented musician (like he plays drums, guitar, bass and a few more instruments…easily). Our dream has been for him to be able to leave WF and work somewhere that would include both of those areas. A while back we even went out on a limb and built a studio and started a company…that didn’t end up working out (a story for later). We had pretty much given it over to Jesus because, who was going to offer Kevin a job doing something in a new industry with little experience and making what it took 18 years to earn at his current job. It was really the main reason I had decided to share my oily journey with others…to supplement his income to give us more options for him to be able to pursue his dream without the strain on our family finances:)
You can’t imagine our surprise and overwhelming happiness when Jesus and our friend brought about an opportunity for him to work for an amazing company doing just those two things…serving and building people and sharing/being surrounded by music! It wasn’t the exact same amount that we were making, but WAY beyond what we could imagine was possible! It was like Jesus said, “I appreciate your help, but I got this!!” He really took this opportunity to show us to TRUST HIM!! I think that was specifically for me…I am the one that has the most trouble just trusting that He has got this!
After much prayer and counsel, hubby gave his notice and was able to take close to 3 1/2 weeks off to just spend time with family and preparing for his new journey. His new company will be Music Bed! If you haven’t heard of them you need to…you see they work with “music artists to do what they love while providing filmmakers with an inspiring selection of music to license for their projects”. So, if you are creating a you tube video, video for website, wedding video, commercial, film, etc…they are a great resource for you! Check out their great site: www.musicbed.com and their app!
Tomorrow marks his first day at this great new company and a new beginning for our family! I feel like 2015 is going to be the best year yet for our family…new beginnings and most of all overwhelming TRUST in the LORD for HIS provision and plans! Do you have any new beginnings in your family for 2015?
Thank you to a friend who posted this…it is exactly what 2015 will be for us! How about you?
