What Now?

Last Friday, October 24, 2008, I took my final level exam for certification in my job. After 7 years, 14 classes, and 4 complicated level exams, I am done and double certified. I am now a Registered Texas Tax Assessor/Collector and a Registered Professional Appraiser. Wow. I feel great about what I have accomplished. But, I feel as if I have reached the end of something. I have worked so hard to learn all I needed to know for these long exams and to do my job, and now I am done and certified. What now? What's next? This can't be the end of the learning era in this field in which I work...could it?
I have always been the type of person who wanted to excel in "achieving things." Perhaps God has a new direction in mind for me. Maybe my season of learning tax-related information has come to an end and I will get to pour my attention into another field of study. Oh, if that would be true! No, I am not quitting my job at the Appraisal District, but I am thrilled at the thought that God may be allowing me to enter into a new topic of study. Maybe something biblical to further my work for the Kingdom...Maybe a new project the HE wants me to do for His Glory! Oh, the thought of that is so exciting! Or maybe, I will finally get to enter a season of rest where I can get some R&R to be ready for the new task God wants me to do later on. I don't know for sure, but I trust that God will reveal His intentions to me in His perfect timing. Rest would be great (and I need it desperately), but I am always eager to do what God asks of me. If you will, please pray for God's will to be carried out in my life as well as the lives of my kids and wonderful husband. God Bless!
