God knows us Best
Trust Me to look after You.
I recently had an interview for a job. It was a temporary, part-time job. We had just had a massive bill to pay on our car. If I got this job it would have helped ease our situation, and it would have fitted round the kids.
I got the email that said “ Sorry you have been unsuccessful” I was devastated. I had felt sure that it would have been a “yes”.
It has been a while since I have last looked for a job. I have found the process rather stressful. I have found myself asking questions like “I wonder what they thought of me?” and “I hope they liked me”.
Then of course after the rejection I thought “What did I do wrong?” and “Why didn't they like me?”
I was getting down, so I decided to grab my camera, go for a walk and talk with God. I live in a village and so I soon came to a field with Highland cow calves in it. As I began taking a few shots and observing the calves, God reminded me of a passage in Matthew.
New International Version (NIV) http://www.biblegateway.com/
Do Not Worry 25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?
. I suddenly realised I had slipped into problem solving mode and had not given God much of a say in the process.
Now I should have known better but the ministry I am in was going through a transition phase and I had begun to wonder if it had been time to move. I had seen a door and thought it was time to push it and had soon convinced myself the grass would be greener there.
I am still in the same job but still at a junction. I am not sure the full picture in the next stage of development, or even how we will fund it but I know I have to stay where I am and see where God takes our team next.
God is our Creator and Provider.
