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.
