As I read Lucky Dorito this morning, I realized that we are in similar situations right now. We are both uncertain of our future employment. (Although she has a lot more riding on her end.)
When I got up this morning, I prayed that God would take me and use me in His will with my next job. I prayed that He would show me what He wanted me to do next.
For a while at my last job, I had wondered if I was where God wanted me to be. (I am thankful for my time there and so glad that the owners son accepted Christ. In fact he was baptized the same evening as Tween.) But while I was working there, I always felt that God wanted me some place else. When the opportunity came up for me to take a layoff, I took it so that God could move me into His will.
This verse popped into my head this morning as I read of Dory's situation:
Jer 29:11 - “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Wow - what a powerful verse. So from today until we both are where God wants us to be at this season of our lives, I am praying this prayer for us. Do you also need it prayed for you? Let me know and I will add you to the prayer.
