Here is something that I know beyond a shadow of a doubt to be true…. When I allow God to be in control then I have to need to fear what the future holds. I have no reason to question why things have worked out the way they have, and I have no doubt that it will “all work together for the good”. What a comfort in uncertain times!
If you’ve read between the lines of some of my blog posts over the past month or two you would know that I’ve been looking for a job recently. The job I thought I was guaranteed to get I didn’t. The next job that I thought I had the best shot at getting, I didn’t. The next one that I thought I would really like, well guess what… I didn’t get that either. I was quickly running out of options (there are only so many hospitals in my state that offer Obstetrics training positions and I need one of them!) but throughout this process it never occurred to me to panic. I continued to stand in that place of trust and obedience and ask God for the right job to come my way.
Eventually it happened. Through a series of events that I can see God’s hand all over I was offered a job. Not the job I originally imagined, but one that I can see as a potential stepping stone on my career path. At the very least it’s the place where I know I’m meant to be for the time being. What the future holds beyond that I’m not sure. But what I do know is that I have placed my trust in the God “who works all things together for the good of those who love Him, and who are called according to His promise” (Romans 8:28)
