I have been searching for a new job for a few months now. I love teaching and it is my passion, so I am searching for a teaching position in my home state of Georgia. Lately I have been getting letters stating that they had filled the position, thanks for applying, etc. Which has been discouraging to say the least.
Through all of this my husband, Jeff, my friend, Sandy, and my mom have been reminding me that God is faithful and he is closing the doors that need to be closed. My mom keeps reminding me that God has a place for me. Jeff asked me just last night – has God let you down so far? Where is your trust?
Wow- talk about convicting. I started asking my self the same thing on the way to work this morning. Jessi where is your trust? Low and behold God sent me some blessings through the songs that came on the radio. Here are a few of the inspiring words I heard this morning:
“Every moment of my life
God, You never left my side
Every valley, every storm
You were there, You were there
I don’t need to know what’s next
You’ll be with me every step
Through it all, through it all
I can see You carry me”
“I want you as you are, not as you ought to be”
“I Am holding onto you in the middle of the storm I am holding on I am.”
What an encouragement!! My job search has always been in God’s hands because he is going to place me where I need to be. I just have to have faith enough to trust him while I am waiting!
