My husband was in line for an awesome full-time job doing what he loved in a city close to the one we had already established ourselves in… this looked like the perfect open door to a promising long-term position, and we were unofficially told that we were “in.” We were thrilled and started planning our future.
Unfortunately, two weeks later, they rewrote the position and decided to go in a completely different direction.
We were extremely disappointed and utterly confused. To us, this job looked like a great fit, in a perfect location with great potential for the future, and it suddenly disappeared like a door slamming shut in our faces. Although disappointed and confused, we chose to trust God’s plan instead of our own, even when we didn’t understand. Not gonna lie, it was VERY difficult to praise God even in our hurt!
But today, almost ten years later, we can truly say God has blessed us exceedingly beyond what we can ask or imagine. My husband has an even better job than we thought possible, and our trust in the Lord is deeper than ever before.
“And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.” Romans 8:28
Dear Lord, thank You that even when we don’t understand our circumstances, we can trust in Your goodness, knowing that You work all things together for good. You are so faithful! We praise You for that because it’s who You are. Amen!
