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?


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?


  1. I'm going through this same thing right now! I am really learning to let go and trust God. I do mostly, but I want to always! I'll be posting about what the Lord has brought me through in the last couple months about looking for a job. As a matter of fact, I start my job waitressing at an Italian restaurant today! It's quite the story how the Lord has blessed me with this happened when I stopped looking! I will pray that He gives you guidance, direction, and wisdom. I know how difficult this is!

  2. Praise God that you got a job! I wanna hear how your first day goes. I've never done waitressing before. It seems so intense!

  3. well, I only worked last night for 3 hours. the manager said he will only have me work short shifts the first couple weeks to make sure I can handle it, I guess.

    I'm going to post on my blog about how it went...I would appreciate any input you have.


I would love to hear from anyone and everyone...please feel free to post a comment!
