Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 [NIV]
Be joyful always… FAIL. Pray continually… FAIL. Give thanks in all circumstances… FAIL. Hmmm. I’m not doing too good.
I am still for the most part unemployed and thought I would give a blog post update. Many have asked about the situation and are very concerned with how we are making it. I am in fact not completely without income. I have a part-time job doing some hourly work for a company in Orlando, FL. It’s all computer programming stuff that I do remotely and have been doing for the past seven years for them. It’s only between five and ten hours a week, but is more than nothing. I also have a few other small opportunities that have come up to do some web development jobs for people which I am actively pursuing. These are certainly not full-time income replacement vehicles but are certainly sent of God to help during our wait.
Speaking of the wait… it seems that God wants me to learn patience or something. The company here in town mentioned the 20th as the day they would be making a decision on, so hopefully I will be hearing something from them this week. I won’t get my hopes up too much for Wednesday, but perhaps by Friday I’ll hear something. I also had a lead in Fort Walton Beach but have not heard anything from that end.
Actually all of my leads have fell eerily silent. It’s kind of strange. I was talking to some good friends and I jokingly said that it was the calm before the storm and that God was about to open the floodgates of blessings! Perhaps… who knows but God. All I can do is pray and wait… and continue to send out a flood of resumes.
Thank you to all who have and still continue to pray for us. God bless you!
