I prayed for this

Prayed for 4 times.


I am in confusion about what to do about my current job and the decision to leave it and whether or not to seek another. I am a church organist/pianist and choir director and while the people in the congregation and the choir are warm and supportive, it is impossible to work with the pastor. God knows the details that I won't go into here. For more than 40+ years I have served churches in many denominations and have always managed to have a wonderful working relationship with the clergy. The unremitting stress in working where I am is affecting my health and my blood pressure has become unstable after being well regulated for years. Today I realized that my health is more important than trying to make this work out for me in this church. In finally deciding to resign, soon I noticed my anxiety fading away, so I know this is the right decision for me. Officially I am "retired" (from my *day job*) but can't find peace with that and continue to drive myself to keep working at something I've done professionally since I was 12. It's part of my identity and hard to see myself letting it go. So I need peace and clarity of mind to pray for discernment about what to do next. Thank you and may God bless you for taking a few moments to lift this up in prayer.
