I don't have a job.
But I know that I need to trust God.
This is part of the surrender process that I'm going through.
Do I believe that God has a plan for my life and that this includes what my first job out of college will be?
Yes. No. Yes. No. Yes. No. YES. NO! YES!!!! NOOOOO!!!! YEEESSSSS!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Yes.
This is a faith struggle for me. At times I'm completely confident, at other times I'm scared and worried.
That's when I have to drop to my knees (which I've literally been doing that a lot lately, as I find it helps me concentrate on really connecting with God through prayer), and just surrender. I have to be able to say - "Alright God. This freaks me out. Yet I trust you most of the time. Help me trust you ALL the time! Please, guide me."
I can't wait to tell you what comes of this surrender process. I really want the right job. I really want God to plant somewhere where I can ambush coworkers with His love!
I'm also trying to pray as I write my job applications, and pray as I turn them in, and pray as I receive a phone call or am granted an interview.
I've had one "pre-screening" call so far, and maybe they'll call back this week for an interview. We'll see!
God - give me faith and strength to see this through!
Do you trust God with your job and career? Does God really care what we do as far as work goes?
