A New Path...maybe....

Hi everyone,

Could you please remember me in prayer....I may be applying for a new job! I have not been happy with driving bus this past year (long story) and for the past few months I have been contemplating quitting but afraid to because the money helps keep food on the table! I know, I know...where is my faith? That is what I have been struggling with. I know myself, and when I start resenting my job or things about it, it is time for me to move on. Problem is, I had "told" myself and God that when my business picked up I would quit...I wanted my business to make me the same amount I would get from the bus so that I could quit.

Well...my business is picking up, but I haven't felt safe enough to quit and so lately I've been praying for confirmation about what to do...I've had a feeling the past month that I wouldn't be going back to the bus and almost gave my notice before the end of school but was scared to do that!

I just found out today about a possible job...it's Monday to Friday, 9-11am (yep...2 hours!) and I can take Madeline. In fact, they want a stay at home mom to come and bring her child...it's in a children's funhouse place and they want someone to organize games and crafts for 2 hours each morning. Best of all, it's right down the street from Christian Horizons district office where my husband now works! The owner knows my cousin's wife really well, so she told me to call and tell him that she is referring me. I think I stand a really good chance of getting it!

Please pray for wisdom...I know I would like the job...it would actually help me because I've been wanting to get Madeline in a play group but I'm still a bit scared because I will most likely be paid even less than the bus paid...but I know God will provide so I need to get past that scary part! It's a step of faith for me, and I'm the kind of person who likes everything planned and perfect...so this would take me out of my comfort zone! But at least it would still leave me lots of time for doing cakes!

Hi Julie,

I will definately remember you in my prayers. It's a challenge to step out to the unknown but it's exciting too!

Bless you.

Father God, I pray for Julie as she seeks your direction regarding her job situation. Help her to see that the job is never our source of "income" but rather, You are. Give her peace, Lord, as she steps out in faith, trusting You to provide for her family's needs. Thank You, Lord, we can lay our thoughts/requests at Your feet, knowing that You will direct as You see fit. In Your Son's precious Name, I pray. Amen.

Thank you everyone...Pilot Mom...thanks because that is something that I need to remember (and I am trying!). I have done much studying the past couple years about looking to God as my source and not a job or person, etc.

The more I think about this job the more I want it...it couldn't be more perfect and I don't think I ever could have imagined a job like this! So I know that if God wants me to have this job then it is mine and if not, then there is something better in store!

P.S.
That song you gave Little Missionary, "Who am I" is one of my favorites! God used it in my life a lot.

Julie:

Good to see you yesterday! You're the only PILGRIM PAL that I get to see on a regular (almost) basis!

I'll be praying for wisdom for you, my friend.

Poor Stubby Sally! I'm going to miss her if you send her out to pasture. The rest of the PILGRIM PALS don't have a clue what I'm talking about do they.

God will provide! You know that!

Trust Him!

Your friend, not by accident,
