“Everything changes and nothing stands still.” Heraclitus of Ephesus
That quote could not be more accurate. Since the last time I wrote a blog post, I have gone through almost innumerable changes. I have changed jobs, moved to a new state, rented a house, and begun the process of finding a new church. You could safely say that pretty much every facet of my life has changed.
At the end of September, I accepted a new position as an Embedded Software Engineer with Precision Planting LLC. I summarily left my position as Lead Software Engineer at InSource Technologies, Inc, and moved from rural Northwest Ohio to Central Illinois. While not a drastic move, it was definitely a change of scenery, and is taking some getting used to.
Then, 2 weeks after I started my new job, it was announced that Precision Planting is being acquired by John Deere, in a deal they made with Monsanto and The Climate Corporation. More change, anyone?
So now, after a little less than a month in, I’m finally beginning to get used to my new schedule, new surroundings, new…everything. And while I’m not necessarily comfortable, I’m content. I know that God is working all things together for my good (Romans 8:28). His hand has been evident throughout the whole process. Everything has been perfectly timed, and I have not had any real concerns throughout the whole process. The few that I have had, turned out to be unfounded.
And finally, I can also, at long last, understand a quote that I’ve seen on one of my favorite blogger’s websites for years, but never fully understood. And you know what? It’s accurate. And it’s a perfect way to end this post.
