I didn’t get the job.

I just found out that I didn’t get a new job that I applied for. I had three interviews for this position and have been waiting patiently for the news. This job would take me out of the public schools. It is a brand new position to this organization and I would have been able to work from home. The crazy thing is – I already knew in my heart that I wasn’t going to get the position. I told my husband a week ago that I didn’t think they were going to offer it to me. He told me I was being negative, but I just felt God speak to me and tell me that I am right where I am supposed to be.

I prayed a lot about it. I prayed for God to open the door if it was meant to be and to close the door if it wasn’t the best thing for me and my family.  I didn’t want to have to make the choice to stay or go. So, not getting the job wasn’t a bad thing. It was just God answering my prayers and his answer was – to stay put. I can conjure up some excuse as to why I didn’t get the job or I can thank God for coming through, as always. At least I know that I am exactly where God wants me to be. What is his plan for me now? That is the question.

  1. The best part of these moments typically comes in the following months, when you can look back and see a beautiful testimony being woven together, one that speaks to His goodness and faithfulness. Praying that the time between now and then moves swiftly and His plans become abundantly clear. Can’t wait to hear about the door He does open!
