Seeking His Will.....

Today I went for a job interview. I'll tell you like I told my precious nurse manager, Cece, I have not been job hunting. Several weeks ago, Mike and I were talking right before we drifted off to sleep and I told him how content I was at this season of my life....one major area of contentment for me is my job. I am fortunate to see the miracle of life almost every time I go to work and I have a wonderful nurse manager. On occasion, I will tell God, "O.K., God you know I love my job, but if you see fit to place me in a job right here at home, just show me because I'm a little slow." I think I mentioned in a previous blog that I know what it is like to be discontent...and it's quite a miserable place to be. God has such a sense of humor....you know the saying, "If you want to make God laugh, tell Him your plans..." The next day after I had boldly mentioned my contentment to my husband, I received a phone call from a sweet lady that has been a friend and acquaintance for several years now. She mentioned a job opening where she works and asked if I would be interested in applying.....after I told her, "Well, maybe (pause)..." She said, "Well, so far there is about 150 applicants"....I thought to myself, "talk about shooting down the ego, how can an aging woman like myself compete with that." I hung up the phone began to work on my application and placed this situation at the Lord's feet. You see, I don't want any job that God doesn't want me to have! I went for my interview today prayed up! My sweet man prayed with me this morning and my daughter prayed with me this afternoon before the interview. So....now I wait....once again, just seeking His will and trusting that He knows what is best for me and my family :)

I am confident of this one thing...God has a plan for you and whatever that plan is, when you place your willing heart before him...He will lead you in the right direction. He will open the doors you need to walk thru and close the ones you don't need. You have given Him your heart and are trusting his decision.....He will have His way in this situation... I can hardly wait to see what it is....keep us posted. We need to do lunch one day soon.
