Jobs




Once again we are so amazed at how God provides for us and is taking care of us. Its mind boggling to think about the fact that we don't deserve and he gives so much.
Well this is how I feel because God once again has worked out all the details for us. And time after time I still get impatient and worried.
We have been here exactly a month and everything is changed over and fully become residents in PA. We both have full time jobs, his seminary schedule is set up. We have all of our Christmas presents and are able to celebrate wonderfully at our new apartment with decorations, a tree, and the holiday baking. And we still have money left in the bank. The only thing that we can do and should do is give God the praise for being so gracious with us.

The details about my job I think are amazing mostly becuase of how impatient and worried I get about things. Of course I had been looking everywhere for jobs. I was trying to get a job that I would use my Spanish. So Richard found this legal office that was looking for a bilingual intake secretary. So of course I jumped at it and contacted them and sent them my resume. Meanwhile I kept calling people to check up on status of applications and trying different things. Then on thursday they called and asked if I could go in the next day for an interview. I was very happy. So Friday I went to the interview. I thought it went well, but the only thing I thought was bad was that they didn't believe that I knew how to read and write spanish. But I tried to convince them that I did. So it was over and they said they would get back with me later. So now back to just waiting. I didn't do too much other looking because I really wanted this job. Meanwhile Richard got a job and started working right away. So I just wait at home all day. Come Weds of the next week and I was really getting anxious. I was waiting for a rejection letter to come in the mail, and I even sent out my resume to 3 other people that afternoon. Then later that day the lady called me back and offered me the position. But it gets better. I was worried about my schedule being worked out with the holidays and the wedding we have to travel to. But turns out I will just train a few days this next week and then start right away full time when I get back from my trip. Its so perfect. Now I can enjoy all the holiday bustle without being busy with work, but I have the assurance and security of a job.
The job is pretty good paying, full benefits, and paid vacations and holidays. Its so amazing.

I just love to look back at how God has taken care of us so much.
I hope that you guys can testify to that too. It makes you realize how much you don't need to worry. Matthew 6.

Praise the Lord for His provision. Tim and I have experienced His great provision as well during our first year of marriage. I am so like you Jessica with much fear of the unknown. What a great reminder of how God will provide and to trust Him!!!

Jess,
Thanks for posting - it's hard not to worry! But your reminder is so good. Praise God for his faithful provision. I am waiting for info and timing, and offers on my spring contracts for teaching - so I am worring a little too.
Thanks.

That is awesome how the Lord worked out the details for both of your jobs. That is great that you will be able to use your Spanish! How neat of an opportunity that will be. I Hope that you have an awesome Christmas and we will have to get together. By the way, we live in West Reading so we will see how far that is from you and we can get together.

We are SO unbelievably happy for you! Something that is even more amazing than the Lord providing all this for you, is when the Lord provides it for your children! That's how we feel - we know He will provide but just that extra special blessing for us is when He provides for our kids! We love you guys!

Welcome to the east coast again. I am glad the move went well and that the job search has ended well! When does Richard start school? I couldn't remember if he was taking classes in the spring or waiting until the fall. Have a wonderful Christmas season.
