I will be praying for those who have recently lost jobs and are still looking for new employment and direction. I would also like to share that my greatest time of growth has always come during what other see as my darkest hours. My job loss is bringing me closer to God, which is what He wants and I need. It has also dumped me completely into my purpose; the little pushes only knudged me to drag along one half-step at a time. The comfort a steady paycheck kept me from fully surrendering to Him. Only His grace recognized my need for confirmation, and allowed my stubborness a peep into the good works He can do when I obey Him and use my little to help others walk into their own calling. I should have listened before He had to shout at me; but I am thankful that this lesson is not as painful as some others that I’ve had. I’m rambling, but I am so excited about what God is doing for me just weeks after losing my job.
“Jobs are jobs.” I like that. It’s not me, the loss of my health or my family. I’m praising Him right now for the lessons and the blessings. Thanks, Seth for another timely and great post.
