Workstaff & food service assistant


God has taught me how to listen and hear Him when He is talking to me.  I have never felt so confident that I could ask God a question and know that He is absolutely going to answer me.  For example, I was only supposed to work the first half of the summer as a volunteer.  During that time, I was slightly nervous about what I was going to do when I got home, specifically how I was going to make money to just pay for stuff.

I began to just pray that God would show me what He wanted me to do and that He would just give me faith that He would do so. God then opened the door for me to stay for an extra 2 weeks to be the groundskeeper after first half and I knew for sure that that is what God wanted me to do.  I have spent a lot of time praying for rest, and just knowing that I am doing exactly what God wants me to do, completely for His glory, to my absolute best ability, is the most restful experience that you can have.

While all of this has been happening, I have gotten an opportunity to work in the kitchen, which has become one of my favorite things to do this summer. So with our Food Service Director being sick, I was asked to be a cook for the rest of the summer, and there really was not a doubt in my mind that that is what God wanted me to do. Living completely for the will of God and not your own, and working wholeheartedly for the glory of God, letting Him use you, has been completely and totally restful This summer God taught me how to listen when He speaks, and how to live and love for Him.
