I posted last week about how God was asking me to wait regarding my job. My heart was a bit heavy – I had hopes that I would be given a job offer, but those hopes seemed dashed. Today God gave a boost to my weak faith. 15 minutes before the end of my work day, my boss called me into his office. I thought, “Oh great, I’m done.” I prayed, reminding myself that God is in control. We sat down and my boss handed me a job offer. A very good job offer. It was what I had hoped for in several areas and exceeded my expectations in one.
I am enjoying this answer to prayer, but one more huge blessing comes out of this. I had shared with many my hope to get hired by this company. I had shared my waiting lesson. Now my friends and family get to rejoice with me in this news. I have made several phone calls, sent text messages and posted on Facebook. This praise is giving great pleasure to many.
God gives good gifts! I technically unwrapped this present, but all of us get to partake in the excitement.
