Praying For A New Job Possibility ... While Thanking God For His Continued Provision
Papa hasn't worked since September. While we PRAISE God for money in the bank that has carried us through, it would be REALLY nice if he could get a job.
Papa just found out that the refinery company he worked for last spring (a temporary 6 week job) is hiring again. He headed right down to the company headquarters this morning to turn in his application.
Please pray ...
... that the Lord would give him favor
with the personnel office.
... that he would get a full-time position.
... that he would get hired for the refinery
that is 30 minutes from home, rather
than the one 1 1/2 hours from home.
(He will commute if he has to, though.)
... for wisdom for Papa as he continues to seek
a full-time career position, and not "just a job".
* should he go back into Teaching?
(He applied for 14 positions last summer?)
* should he go back into the Ministry?
* will the Lord build his Painting Business?
* will the Refinery become a career?
* should we look for jobs out of the area,
and be willing to move anywhere?
(There is a ministry job down near Seattle,
but we are so NOT "city people".)
We are THANKING and PRAISING God for His continued provision (although Papa so desires to be working again).
We are THANKING God for the time Papa has had at home the past 2 months, which has given us the time and energy to complete our Re-Decorating Project.
We are THANKING God for the time Papa has had at home the past 2 months, which has given us time for continued Marriage Restoration (after a very TOUGH year).
We are THANKING God for provision through extra Painting Jobs in August & September.
We are THANKING God for provision through the Adoption Tax Credit (even though we still have not yet seen the full amount that we are owed).
We are THANKING God for provision through the buying and selling of things on Craiglist. (It truly has been amazing; and our balance sheet is still on the positive.)
We are THANKFUL this week, and are so looking forward to a quiet, Family Thanksgiving.
Please keep Papa's Job Situation in your prayers.
What are YOU Thankful for today?
