As most of you know, I have been looking for full time employment since I graduated with my Masters in Public Health January of 2007. Since that time I have been a teacher, a CNA, an office assistant and most importantly a mom for my baby Bug. We have moved states twice searching for employment for both myself and for KB. We have prayed, discussed educational options, and continued seeking the Lord’s will for our lives.
Back in August, when we were moving to TN, I had put in an application for state employment as a child case manager. A couple of weeks later, the state’s application website was taken offline for upgrades and I was unable to apply for any other state jobs. Thinking that that door had been closed, I looked elsewhere for employment. About two weeks ago, I received a letter in the mail from the state requesting an interview for the case manager position. I interviewed and began a wait that would either end in a phone call offering the position or a letter declining my application. I was under the impression that if I was to be offered a position that I would receive a phone call within a week and the letter by Christmas. Needless to say, I was looking for the letter by this point, but God apparently had other plans.
I received the phone call this morning and accepted. My start date for orientation and the beginning of my training will be January 16th. I know that this will be a difficult job, but I’m really excited to be able to served the Lord and the families that I will be coming in contact with. Thank you all so much for your faithful prayers this whole time. We still have several decisions to make, especially in the realm of KB’s interest in going back to school for a Master’s in Accounting and childcare for D. We have some childcare options available, I just have to hash things out still.
May you all have a blessings filled Christmas and always remember that even though Christ came as a baby, he became a man to reconcile us to the Father. His gift of grace is always sufficient but he is also a God who loves to take care of His children’s needs and He is always faithful.
