You're Hired!

I had just finished some grocery shopping and was getting ready to fill up the gas tank in my "new" Subaru Impreza.

It is during those necessary visits to the gas station that I most miss my beloved Harley Junior. Why? Because the same amount of cash that runs my car for a ten days or so would have powered my motor scooter for two months. Oh well. (sigh!) I suppose I'll get used to that.

Anyway, I had just begun fueling my car when my cell phone rang. It was the manager at our local Hobby Lobby. I'd had an interview with him a couple weeks ago. Praise God, I got the job, and I start this Thursday. This was very good news for me. 

In spite of the fact that this is a part-time job, I am very thankful. I can see God at work here.

  • This is a job that leaves Sundays free. 
  • I believe it is work I can enjoy. 
  • Even if it isn't where God has me for the rest of my life, it is a good place for now.
  • Even if a second part-time job doesn't come about, I can use the next few months to develop work-from-home possibilities in writing, editing, or some such field. Public speaking might be another possibility if God opens the doors.
I really appreciate those who have been praying for me. Don't stop. I may not know exactly where God is taking me, but I trust Him to get me there in His time.

As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Isaiah 55:9


  1. So glad to hear you heard you got the job. I tried calling at your Mom's today. We are praying for you.

  2. Congrats. What kind of hobbies do they specialize in? I love those type of stores.

    1. They specialize in lots of different things: scrapbooking, models, sewing, quilting, painting, make-your-own wreaths, and more. They also sell unique home accents and seasonal decorations. There are Hobby Lobby stores across the USA, but I guess they haven't made it out your way yet.


Any thoughts on this post? I would love to hear from you.
