Since November, a lot of changes have happened in my life. I got married to the man of my dreams (it was such a perfect day!) and I somehow managed to be a newlywed, work, take 15 units and GRADUATE from college 4 months later with a B.A. in Liberal Studies.
Back in February, I started skimming the local job boards, applying for jobs here and there and it wasn't until May hit that I started to 'freak out.' In my ideal world I would have loved to start my "career" right out of college (like the next week!) But as God would have it....that hasn't happened. I've been aggressively applying for jobs now, but haven't had any luck. I have a good feeling though. I have so many applications out there, one or two have got to catch a bite.
I have felt a tug on my heart lately to just let go and let God. I've found that often when there is nothing else to do, I just pray. Being patient has NEVER been an easy task for me and whenever I start to feel antsy I am reminded of a couple verses. Romans 8:25 "But if look forward to something we don't yet have, we must wait patiently and confidently." (NLT) Psalms 46:10 "Be still and know that I am God. I will be exalted in all the nations. I will be exalted in all the Earth." These are just some verses God uses to bring me peace and understanding that He is STILL in control.
Through this season of being still, I am being reminded of God's faithfulness in my life. My husband is blessed with a great job that helps pay most if not all of our bills. We may struggle some months but we can always pay our bills on time. We have a happy marriage regardless of the stresses and let downs looking for a job brings. We still laugh (a lot!!) and go on dates. We don't want to let this bump in the road take over, we want to let God stay in control and continue to grow closer to Him and each other through the circumstances we are given.
