Good morning readers,
Well I had a meeting with a recruiter yesterday, he sent me on an interview yesterday afternoon, and then called with another possible job...it was a great meeting to say the least. I know that I didn't get the job from the first interview because I didn't have quite enough experience, but Carol (the lady I interviewed with) did say that she would hire me in a second if she had a legal secretary position open...but she doesn't! Hey - I don't have a job yet, but at least I know people like me!!!!
Anyways, I had an wonderful morning with the Lord. I have been doing the Breaking Free study by Beth Moore. I have had the book for years, but never taken the time to read and study the Word with it - boy am I glad I picked it up.
This morning's study was about fully experiencing the benefit of peace that the Lord has to offer. Many people have asked how I am doing since I lost my job and several can't understand that it has been a blessing rather than a curse. I have had an incredible peace about the entire situation; yes, sometimes I think about "what ifs", but then I turn my eyes upward and they all fade away. It is unexplainable. Well this morning in my reading, I ran across this and it is exactly what I needed to see:
"He is God, the Creator of the heavens and the earth, the supreme Author of all existence. He reigns over all, and in Him all things exist. He is Lord, the Master and Owner of all living creatures. He is the covenant Maker and Keeper. He is holy. As Lord, He will never ask anything of us that is not right, good, and open to the light. He is perfect and undefiled. Lastly, He is Redeemer, the One who bought us from sin's slave master so we could experience abundant life. He bought us to set us free. 'What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us?' (Rom. 8:31)"
Read the bold part again - He will never ask us to do anything that does not bring Him glory. Therefore, I will wait until HE brings the perfect job my way because I KNOW that HE will put me exactly where He wants me to be. This, my friends, is why I have a peace! Oh, how it brings me such excitement to know that my God and the God of all the universe is watching out for me and is taking care of everything!
