Gracious are the very few words I can use to describe the overwhelming feeling from a heart flowing with thanksgiving.
TODAY I start a new position one that the Lord made sure that I know I didn't get because of skills or experiences. You see, I applied for the position online and received a call the next day to schedule an interview. I had to take a test first as part of the hiring process. I was warned that some people have taken as long as three hours to complete the test. Upon my arrival for the test which was over 20 pages of questions -not multiple choice - essay like answers required. I looked at it quickly to see which questions I could answer quickly.
One. Just one answer that I knew with certainty.
I thought of walking out of the conference room where I was. After all, there was absolutely no way I was remotely going to get this position. Two others have interviewed before me and surely they answered more than one question. They are much better- I thought to myself. It was fine because after all I still had a job. The truth is the position involved much more than what I was doing where I was but capable of learning nonetheless.
AFTER wrestling for an hour -. I turned in the test thinking I didn't deserve an interview but the manager walked in and conducted the interview. In all, I was there for over 3 hours. I quickly called my husband to tell him jokingly that if I get called that God made sure I wouldn't be able to take an ounce of credit.
BUT they did call me less than an hour after leaving the place to start background check. I was offered the position a few weeks later. I was stunned. Amazed. Nothing short of the favor of the Lord.
IT is so worth documenting, dear Lord, lest I forget your faithfulness and mercy in the land of the leaving.
IN answering this specific prayer, He opens the door to have family devotion in the morning.
To be continued.
