Oh, how great are God’s riches and wisdom and knowledge! How impossible it is for us to understand his decisions and his ways!
Romans 11:33 NLT
Everyday on my way to work, I pray as I walk to the bus stop. I pray about everything. I have been so blessed to be placed in a position where I am growing, learning and improving constantly. I haven’t been there three months but the owners trust and see my ability that I have been entrusted with a new hat. None of the positions that I am doing, I have ever done before. When Bishop Vann used to say God will create a position for your talents. I always wondered what that would look like in my life. Now I’m living it.
I was unemployed for 11 months living in NYC. I didn’t stress much I mostly prayed for strength when I would get sad or upset. I had plenty of interviews sometimes 2-3 in the same day. Mostly in education, no one wanted to hire me for a position outside of the classroom regardless of having 15 years experience and a Masters degree in Educational Evaluation and Research. The interviews that went great would set up a 2nd or 3rd interview then nothing. I didn’t give up I changed directions in which I was applying. God provided me with work with education in a different capacity.
I am so blessed to be in God’s covering. I pray for covering everyday. When I tell you God closed my eyes to some things that would have made me quit my new job until He was ready for me to see them. I questioned why was I working here under these circumstances. He has shown me that the Holy Spirit is shining through and guiding me so stay the course. I have and was overwhelmed when I was called into the office and told about my new hat. My bosses were supportive when I freaked out and started crying after my training. They see a greatness in me that is admired.
I love going to work even with the hour and half commute. This time gives me a chance to pray, think, read or listen to music. I just wanted to encourage someone to stay the course it will work out. I came into my career as an intern an less than a month I shifted to a leadership role. I have been covered by God in so many ways.
This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
Joshua 1:9 NLT
