About two weeks ago my store, American Eagle Oufitters, closed. The few days before the last day we were open were extremely difficult. It didn't feel real but seeing everything being shipped away and our store becoming bare made it real, ...and it hurt. I think that is probably why I didn't share the news with you. I haven't really talked about it with anyone besides my family and co-workers. And oh how I miss working (and laughing) with them. Never before have I worked with such an amazing group of people. We all got along so well and working together to meet customer's needs was so fulfilling. The good news is, I get to continue my adventures with the company! That's right, I was offered a position at another location just yesterday! I'm scheduled to start in just two weeks. I'm so thankful and excited!

However, with the excitement comes nervousness. I realized the other day that I stress and become rather indecisive when circumstances change in my life. I question myself constantly and I look at all my options one too many times. With this transfer I have the opportunity to get more hours which meant turning in my two weeks' notice at Forever 21. My manager completely understood and everything ended on a good note which I'm very grateful for. Even with all this "good" happening I still wonder and worry about the choices I've made. But, I made my move and now I get to see what happens. It's in God's hands and I know that I need to trust Him.

Is there something in your life that you feel you could worry a lot less about? Let's be reminded of this verse together:

"Cast all your anxiety on Him because he cares for you." - 1 Peter 5:7

God is bigger than our anxieties and will gladly take care of them for us if we allow Him to.
