This week I have been learning about trust. I've always thought I'm pretty good at this - especially at trusting God. This is my journey of learning to trust through the week...

On Sunday I was prompted to apply for a job.

On Monday I called the number and spoke to a lady about it. We arranged a meeting for Friday.

On Tuesday I got a little more excited about the job. I felt God's hand. I heard his voice - I have a plan for you.

On Wednesday the lady called and asked me to bring a CV and references. Suddenly it seemed out of reach, I felt out of my depth and fell back into the mindset of "I'm never going to get a job."

On Thursday I prayed a little. I realised how shaky my trust was. That one minute I'd been fine and known God had a plan - the next I was despairing.

On Friday I was nervous. I called my Mum. She reassured me and gave good advice. I sent a text to my lovely Besom boss who prayed and reassured me. The interview went well.

I still have to pray about this - as do my prospective employers. But even if this job isn't the right one for me and I'm not the right person for this job - I learned a lot about trusting God this week. I need to work on it - when it is easy and when it is hard.

*Incidentally, Annie wrote an amazing post about trusting God - go and check it out!


  1. I think that sounds really good, kind of reminds me how I've been feeling about my job situation. Kind of calms me down about it too. :o) Thanks!

  2. I came across your blog and really love this post. I've been struggling with having faith that God will put me exactly where He want me - the waiting is sometimes the hardest part.

  3. I love this! I have such a problem trusting God with my future and what it looks like- I constantly have to work to let go knowing that He knows what is best for me.

    Good luck with the potential job!
