I may be witnessing the prayer being answered. My manager has accepted a position in another city. I am considered by many to be a good candidate for his soon to be open position. I am by no means a shoe in but I do have previous management experience which is a plus. My manager leaves in two weeks. It is most likely that the opening will be posted at that time.
I’ve been praying to God for ways to help me increase my giving ability. I’ve been researching jobs, looking into moving into smaller more affordable housing, even considering starting a new life in another state. Doing any of that would be exciting but would it bring me the kind of joy I now have? For the first time in my life, I actually work in the town in which I live. I recognize people on the street that I’ve known for years. I have a circle of friends. Most important of all I’ve found a good church full of like-minded Christians who strive to be holy and encourage one another. My gypsy life has never allowed me such joy.
I certainly could achieve my financial goals by moving or changing jobs. However, God is wise beyond understanding. He has placed the answer to my problems right in front of me. As scripture states:
“The Lord is fighting for you! So be still!” Ex 14:14 God’s Word
So I think I’ll just stand still and see what God’s will for me is.
