Today has not been great, but after a brief pity-party, I intend to be over it by tomorrow.
I was telling my spiritual director yesterday how I have had a strong sense of God granting us so many good things, things we have been hoping for and dreaming of.
Today, I found out that I did not get the second job I applied for at the nearby college. That was hard news; I really loved the people I met and the department seemed great to work in. I really wanted that job. The impression I got was that they thought I was overqualified for the job. This is gratifying, but also a bit discouraging because it's really the kind of job I want.
I know that God has the perfect job in mind for me. From my limited perspective, I can't imagine what that might be be.
But I do indeed believe that God sees me and knows what is best for me. So even though I had really hoped to start working on Monday, I will continue to believe that God is granting good things for us. Even though I really wanted to make a budget, I will continue to trust in God's timely provision for all our needs.
I have kind of been putting off blogging as something I would do when we returned to normal schedule, but since that may take a little longer than I hoped, I'm going to try and get back in a good rhythm again.
