So, yesterday I blogged that I had decided that it was high time that I turn back to God and give Him control of my life cause I just hadn't been doing that and I'd been doing my own thing. Well, yesterday, I was given the perfect example of God taking care of His people if the choose to follow Him. For months now, ever since I came back home from college, I have been searching for a job. I've turned in innumerable applications, spent hours on my computer filling out applications there, flipped through newspaper ads, gone online, etc. I've gone into town several days a week to go check out places and did everything I thought I could. Thanksgiving Day, my grandfather tells me that he saw in the newspaper that Smith's was hiring. It didn't say which Smith's just in general. He told me to go online and fill out an application. So, that night I filled out the application, fully excepting it to be overlooked like every single time before.

Recently, I've been struggling with a lot of stuff. Some pretty major emotional up and downs and changes. And finally, finally, today, I kind of just thought through things and decided that I really, really needed to get out of this rut that I've been digging myself into for years. I needed to turn around and give everything to God and let Him handle it. I also realized that part of the reason I was having such serious emotional issues, was because of my music. I'm a Christian, yes, but that doesn't mean that I only listen to Christian music. I've come to realize that little by little I had removed the majority of my Christian music from my MP3 player to make room for newer non-Christian music I had either heard our found. As I thought about it today, I realized that at least 3/4 of my music was not Christian, and about 1/2 of it was not edifying or really good in any way. I realized that I had started to subtly move towards some edgier music. Nothing explicit, but maybe a curse word here or there or a mild suggestion. But it was affecting me, and not in a good way.
