As many of you already know, I had an interview this week for a position as a Corporate Flight Attendant based in West Africa. I knew that if I was successful, I would need to re-think this blog, as the nature of the work is pretty similar to what I was doing before when I was based in Saudi Arabia as a VVIP Flight Attendant.
I have been thinking long and hard over this past week about The Arnie Diaries and The French Corner. When I started The French Corner back in 2012, it went as unclassified. By the time 2014 rolled around, what it had essentially turned into was an online diary – and therefore, in January of this year, I kicked off with The Arnie Diaries.
I was successful at my interview on Tuesday and started work the same day. Praise God! If I could have written down the specs for the perfect job, I would have only listed half of what I have just been offered. It is more than I could ever have hoped or wished for. And now I look back and realise what the last two years of blogging have been about – it was my faith journey through a critical challenge that I got to share publicly.
This new season of my life would make for much more interesting reading for most of you, I am sure. But I am no longer in a position to share my life so openly being contracted to such a high-profile person. Within the next couple of days, I am going to be setting all my public profiles to private and discontinuing with most of them. In short, this will be the last post on this blog. I know it is abrupt, but this has really been a testimony of God’s faithfulness – and He has proven true to His Word.
One of my fave songs during these past two years was One Thing Remains by Bethel Music from their The Loft Sessions album:
Higher than the mountains that I face
Stronger than the power of the grave
Constant through the trial and the change
One thing… Remains [repeat]
Your love never fails, never gives up
Never runs out on me [3x]
On and on and on and on it goes
It overwhelms and satisfies my soul
And I never, ever, have to be afraid
One thing remains
In death, In life, I’m confident and
covered by the power of Your great love
My debt is paid, there’s nothing that can
separate my heart from Your great love…
Thank you for taking this journey with me!
