So, I’m thankful for a great job interview my husband had over the phone yesterday (at least from my end of the converstation, I heard his confident answers to the panel’s questions, some light-hearted small talk, and I saw him smiling) … It was a second interview as the first one he had was when he was one of 19 out of 100+ who applied for this job. Now he is one of 4 candidates. It is a good job … It is something we’d seriously consider. Yes, we’d have to move.
EXCEPT that we got an email yesterday, notifying use that Daniel is eligible for another job, a BETTER job, a job right here where we live, a position that a former co-worker is trying to help him get.
AND then we got another email about a job announcement that just closed in the area where I’ve wanted to live in since we first interviewed for another job there back in May … the seemingly perfect “compromise” location .
Apparently, there had been a hiring freeze among government service jobs. It has been lifted, and the flood gates on jobs are wide open. BUT that said, it still doesn’t guarantee my husband a job … any of the 3 above mentioned jobs even.
And so, I’m thankful that I have a GOD who already knows what is going to happen … we’re just waiting on HIM to reveal it to us in His perfect time. It’s just that I’m not so good at the waiting …
I’m kind of with one of my favorite authors and heroes of the faith, Corie ten Boom who said, “Don’t bother to give God instructions; just show up for duty.”
We’re here – we’re ready for duty … whatever duty would be best for Daniel and our family and our lives going forward together.
