God is so good!

 About four weeks ago, I applied to 3 different retirement homes to get a job as a nurse aid. A week went by, I heard nothing. Another few days, still nothing. I was beginning to feel a little discouraged. Finally I got a call. I had an interview! The first thing the lady said when I walked into her office was whether or not I wanted to go through with the interview, because they already had the positions "filled." So I decided to have the interview to get some experience and it went well. But I was back to square one... still unemployed. All along, I had been praying that God would open the door to where He wanted me to be, and sure enough, the very next day I got another call! This time from the place where I really wanted to work. I was pumped. The interview went great, but still wasn't promising, as the lady mentioned she had interviews the rest of the day. But again, I gave the situation to God and waited to see what was next. A whole week went by, and again.. no phone call. I'm pretty sure our dear Lord wanted to test me and see if I would be faithful to Him no matter the circumstance, because finally after a month of what seemed like an awful lot of waiting, I got the call! I'll now be working at Garden Spot Village as a nurse aid. I couldn't be any happier. When a door shuts, God seems to always open another. He's so good.

 Philippians 4:6-7

"Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all He has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus."
