God Given Opportunities

Published April 1, 2014 by Stuff My Brain Thinks

Today is the day I interview for a job simply because it was presented to me.  I don’t want to miss any God-given opportunities.  I wasn’t looking for a job at all, but a woman from my gym asked me what I did for work and when I told her, she said I did exactly what she did and that she was looking for a replacement for her position.  At first I told her, no thank you, that I love my job but a few weeks later she was talking about needing to find someone again, so I told her I would apply.  It occurred to me that maybe this was being handed to me for a reason, and I didn’t want to miss out on something good.

She seemed overjoyed by this, so I sent my resume over.  Long story short, I have an interview this afternoon at 4 o’clock.  I have been trying to stay present about this, meaning, I am not thinking too much into it.  They would have to offer me quite a lot for me to walk away from my current place of employment.  However, I must admit, I haven’t had a raise in two years and my duties have grown quite considerably.  I do believe I deserve more money for what I do and if more money is on the table it will be difficult to resist.

I am not looking for “good lucks” or “hope you get its” because I am not even sure I even want it, at this point.  I am simply looking into it because I am a firm believer in not letting opportunities pass us by.  I don’t want to be like the man in the ocean that cries to God and asks “God, why haven’t you saved me” only to hear; I have sent you a plan and you didn’t take it, I have sent you a boat and you let it pass you by, what more can I do.

So, I am off now to get ready for my day and face this interview without nervousness or anxiousness because if this is the opportunity God wants for me, it will be glaringly apparent, it will be effortless.  I will know what to do, at the exact right time I am supposed to do it.  I have no worries and no expectations.  This situation and all situations in my life are in His hands because he knows better for me than I do.

Amen ♥

PS:  I just heard this song on the radio coming home from the gym.  This is one of my dad’s favorites.  I feel as though this is my dad saying hello and that he will be with me today.  ☺
