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.
