Prayers needed for my first job interview tomorrow morning

As many of you know, Michael and I took the leap to move down to Atlanta so that he could finish up school, knowing that I'd have to find a new job--in this economy. Yet, we felt like this was what was best for our future rather than just our "right now" and we knew that we can't underestimate God and his possibilities. So we moved.

As it turned out, my job in Grand Rapids agreed to keep me on the payroll through the end of the year as a full-time freelancer, so that they'd have ample time to find a replacement and the work on that end would feel seamless to our authors and media contacts. God provides.

We've lived down here for almost 3 months and the job market has seemed to dry up. I've found a handful of jobs to apply to and wrote my best cover letter and sent them off with hopes and dreams. Since then, I've waited.

I finally heard back from a prospective employer yesterday, and have an in-person interview tomorrow at 7:45am. God provides.

The thing is that right now I'm sick and feeling overwhelmed...and could really use your prayers as I prepare for this and put the possibilities, the anxieties, back into God's hands, trusting him to go ahead of me and behind me in this journey.

I watched the movie "Facing the Giants" a couple weeks ago with Michael and one of the messages I loved from the movie was their mantra, "We'll praise God when we win, and we'll praise God when we lose. No matter what happens, we'll praise God." That's the spirit I want to take on this journey of "what happens next?"

Thank you, dear friends!

Be strong and courageous.
Do not be afraid or terrified because of them,
for the LORD your God goes with you;
he will never leave you nor forsake you.

Deuteronomy 31:6

  1. Win or lose, it's a learning experience and you get to apply it on the next job interview to achieve better results! Just make sure you're well-composed and make every moment count.
