This morning they closed down the software development office here in Austin where I was working. We’ve been expecting this to happen, so this didn’t really come as much of a surprise. I’ve been feeling for awhile now that God has had some other things in store for me, although I don’t know what yet.
The severance package is pretty good, so I’ll have some time to figure out what God wants me to do, perhaps learn some new skills, or brush up some old skills.
I have a vague feeling that God wants me to do something different than the big enterprise software development that I’ve been doing for most of my life.
I’m feeling pretty good about the change. I just wish I knew where God is sending me 🙂
My only fear at this point is that I might not discern correctly God’s direction for me, and/or that I’ll end up squandering this time off instead of using it to prepare for God next thing for me.
