The young bank teller asked, “Is there anything else I can do for you?” after I deposited a small check from a freelance writing job.
Yes, I wanted to blurt out, “Find a job for me in the next 12 days before my checking account gets down to zero!”
Instead, I simply said, “No, thank you. Have a nice day.” Why put what is clearly my burden on him, I thought.
The job search is more difficult than I ever thought. But I’m not complaining. I simply haven’t mastered it yet — or mastered it enough to secure a job. There’s a lot of movement, much searching, many emails, rewriting of resumes, exploration — but no job yet. I’m trying to keep my sense of humor — and it helps to have a wonderful husband such as mine. Last night at dinner he described the immense fish tank at one of his customer’s offices. There was a critter named a turbo-snail. An oxymoron if I ever heard one.
Turbo-snail. That describes how I feel. I am spinning in employment searching circles and moving forward ever so slowly. But like that snail (who might be really fast for a snail), I will get there. And do you know why I feel confident that I will get there? Finding a source of income is on my daily prayer list — and I know He will help me find the way. The words of Mark 10: 27 are always with me, “With men it is impossible, but not with God, for with God all things are possible.”
Back to prayer and searching and talking with friends and writing emails and doing research on companies. And talking it over with Him with an unrelenting faith that He can do all things beyong my wildest expectations.
With blessings and kind regards to you all.
