Put your money where your mouth is!

Have been giving this potential job some real thought and have been pro-ing and con-ning whether this is right and have been really convicted to practice what I preach!

Throughout this move I have said that I really feel that God’s hand has been on this whole thing. It is clearly meant to be. With Rich finding a job in two weeks and us selling our house in 6 days the writing was on the wall, we were meant to make this move!

The only thing that hasn’t “fallen into place” is me finding a job and its really taken its toll on me. I go from being totally ok with it to completely freaked out about our finances and wondering how the hell we will pay the bills come July if I’m still jobless.
But then I have to look at how things HAVE fallen into place and then I relax (if only for a few minutes). A few weeks ago I was told I couldn’t transfer to the Durban office and had had no bites on my CV. Then my boss told me I could work from the Durban office for June and was also told I’d get my bonus which will tide us over for July and then I got the bite on my CV and went down for the interview last week and that’s all been in the last three weeks. I have to believe something will come by July.

So over the past few days I have been challenged to really put my money where my mouth is and trust God has this all under control. Even if I get this job offer I have to really question if working in the city and travelling 81km a day is why we moved down to the coast…I also have to really question do I take this job because I’m petrified of being jobless even though I don’t think the products are ideal and the role is right for me, or do I have faith that the right thing will happen at the right time……

I receive daily devotions on email every morning .It’s a short paragraph with a bible verse and a short prayer. Today it read:

Dear Lauren

Here is your word for today:

Verse: Matthew 9:9

As HE went from there, He saw a man named Matthew. ‘Follow Me,’ He told him, and Matthew got up and followed Him.

– Are you ready and willing to follow God?
– The Lord wants to use you.
– Matthew did not hesitate, he jumped up and followed.
– Let’s be like Matthew, ready to jump up and follow HIM.

PRAYER: Lord, I am ready and willing to be used by You. I surrender my life and future into Your hands. May I be known as Your follower. Amen

So there you have it, if that isn’t a sign I dunno……I’m still freaking out make no mistake but I do believe that something will come my way…….Just gotta have Faith!

    I’m sure you’ll get something… it’ll be easier to focus on the job hunt when you get there
