Recently I applied for a job at my kid’s school. I didn’t really want to do it, but I felt like I needed to. The whole time I was praying that it wasn’t what God wanted for my family. I would give up a lot. I would be gone two mornings from my kids and would be sad to leave them. I didn’t understand how it could be what God wanted, but I felt like I had to obey Him and so I applied. I got an interview, it went well, and then I got rejected. They didn’t pick me. Even though I am truly grateful (God and I agree, it is best for me to be at home with my kids still, hip hip hooray!), I am dealing with rejection and it isn’t easy. I have never gone for a job and not gotten hired. I don’t understand why God would want me to go through this whole process just to be rejected. Maybe He wanted to see if I would give up being at home and just be obedient to Him, maybe it was practice for a future job, or maybe… the list goes on and on. Since I don’t have the answers I am seeking to trust God and rely on Him for the future. As always, I am growing in Him.
