The Offer…ish. Praying to know His will.

 

 

Good morning all. Well, a little follow up about the job I have previously mentioned for those interested. I received a text yesterday asking me to give them a call and when I did I was informed that I should expect a formal offer by the end of the week. I was both elated and terrified when I was told. If the offer is right and I accept, it will be a dramatic change in my life. I am somewhat uncertain. I have given it all to God and asked that He lead my way. I don’t yet know what they will offer in regards to pay and benefits and have a figure in mind that if they offer that or more, will consider it a sign from Him.

While I have faith in God, that He will work things out, I also have concerns that I may be trying too hard and trying to put my wishes before His will. I will be spending a lot of time praying about this and ask that all pray for the situation that there be no doubt and that I know it is God working things out for His plans for me. I have too often tried to make things be the way I want and not how Christ would have me do in my life. I am struggling to NOT do so anymore.

 

31 But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.
32 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

Luke 12:31-32

 

It is my wish to seek Him first, seek to follow Him and live so that it will glorify Christ.

5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Proverbs 3:5-6

 

Maybe He is trying to teach me more faith, more trust. I pray I have the discernment to know it is from Him and the faith to follow Christ as He guides me.

 

If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all [men] liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. James 1:5

 

I am praying for wisdom that I know His will and that I have the faith to follow.

 

Lord, Praise You for all Your glory. I thank You for the blessings and my salvation. I praise Jesus for the sacrifice He made for me with His death on the cross. I pray in Jesus name that I know Your will and plans, that You give me the wisdom to understand and that I not put my way before Yours. That You give me the faith to follow Your wishes for me. I ask that You draw us all closer to You and that we all come to know Christ as our savior.

Amen

 

Thanks for the visit, your time and your prayers. I hope He blesses you all today and that each is able to be a blessing to others.

The interview process continues

Well, the interview process continues for that job I applied for many months ago. As I said, the process is a very long one in my career field. I had an interview a few weeks ago and they want me to come back to just hang out with the staff at the clinic I would be working in if hired. Primarily to see if we all get along and are not likely to have difficulties that would interfere with helping people.

That being said, I continue to be prayerful about the job, asking God for guidance, placing things in His hands so that if it is His will, the job will be offered, and if not His will, that something be done so I know He is saying, not here, not now.

I ask any readers to offer up their prayers as well. I would like the job and would enjoy working in this clinic, but I am wanting God to be in control.

4 Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice.
5 Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.
6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:4-7

 

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28

 

Lord, I don’t have the words to fully express how much I praise and worship You for Your majesty. You are marvelous beyond words. I pray in Jesus Name that You have Your hand on the job situation and guide me to say and do as You would have me to do and that if the job is part of Your plan for me, to make it work so that I am offered the job at the right salary to address my needs and more importantly, be able to do as You wish I to do forĀ  Christ. I thank You for all Your grace and mercy and for the sacrifice of Christ when He died for my sins. That is a debt I will never be able to repay. Thank You Lord.

Amen

 

Once again, I thank you all for your time. I do ask that you offer prayers that His will be done in the job situation. Thank you for your prayers. Have a wonderful day!
