A New Job if it be God's Will

Let me start today by catching some of you up on my recent career changes and introducing them to some of my new friends.

I was very blessed ten years ago to receive a degree in nursing. I worked Labor and Delivery for a few years then went to Postpartum and Nursery with occasional shifts in L&D to help out. In September of 2006 I accepted a management position in L&D, not knowing that a few months later I would meet Eric and relocate.

I loved working as a nurse especially in the OB field. Management was quite an eye opener and a 24 hrs job. I don't know that I would do it again but I'm thankful for the great experience I received from it.

I moved to a Nashville hospital when we married. It was very similar to the unit I had worked on for years in Chattanooga. I became more and more unsettled in this job and was experiencing a lot of anxiety and panic attacks. This led to my decision to leave the hospital.

Before leaving I began online classes and soon received my state insurance license. It was very interesting and I really enjoyed it. The relief of not going to the hospital was amazing. Just after the first of the year when the economy worsened it became obvious that nobody was buying insurance.

In February I received a call from Eric saying that their Administrative Assistant had quit without a notice. My wheels were turning and I told him I would do it. Now I am no Administrative Assistant and I made that clear, but I can answer phones and do some computer work. His manager said be here after lunch and so I was. It was supposed to be for 2 weeks and well 10 weeks later I'm still here.

I believe with all my heart God placed me here. I have had the opportunity to work for a Christian man who delights in the fact that I do my Bible reading as soon as I get to work. I am also thankful that I have had that opportunity.

Now to get to the point. (I know it took a while) Tomorrow I have an interview at a local health department. It would be a great job with really good benefits and of course they are closed for every holiday and no weekends.

Please pray for me tomorrow at 10am as I interview. Please pray that I will get this job if it is God's will. I have tried too many times to do things in my will and I want this if it is in his will.
If it doesn't happen then I know for now I can continue doing what I'm doing .

Thank you for praying for me!

This is the confidence we have in approaching God; that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. 1 John 5:14
