A blessing

My husband and I took a huge leap of faith in August. He took a job as an Associate Pastor and we made a 7 hour move away from our families. I had assumed with graduating with my B.A. in May that I would have had a job within a few days. Our reliance was completely on God to meet all of our needs, and he did. Within three weeks of moving here I still did not have a job. I needed something in the mean time because we could not live off what we had saved up for to long. I ended up getting a job at a restaurant which I have had alot of experience working in and do enjoy it. But, I was just so ready to take that next step in my life and use the education that I have work so hard for. Going to school full time, being married, working full time and being a youth pastors wife can get quite exhausting. Three months into us living here I am still working at the restaurant.

I worked at a school in our last location and loved it! But, I wanted to work in more of a psychology relm because that is what my degree is in. There was an opening at a mental health center in a town 25 minutes away. The job was working in one of the schools in the six countys that they serve. To make a long story short, three interviews later God blessed me with this job today. Not only that but the county that I will be working in is the county that I live in!

I was coming to terms with the fact that I might be working in a restaurant for a few more years. And, I was ok with that, the people were great and our bills were being paid. God had other plans.

He is sooo good.

"Delight yourself also in the Lord and he shall give you the desires of your heart." Psalm 34:4

What a great God we serve!
