Been A Minute…
…since my last post. Last week was rough. My computer decided not to work anymore. I tried to fix it every day to no avail. I called around to get some price quotes. Based on the issues I was having, one tech told me, “Be prepared to pay a grip.” That didn’t settle well within me. No job and no computer. What was a girl to do???
Keep praying, you say. Well that is exactly what I did. I prayed everytime I tried to work on my computer. When it would shut off, I cut it back on and start the process all over again. Stayed up past midnight on Saturday trying to get the ole’ HP back to working condition. No luck. I got up Sunday morning, turned on Bobby Jones and made another attempt to fix my computer. It went the furthest it’s gone before in the recovery process (100%) and then shut off. I almost screamed.
Instead I remained calm while I hit the power button. Next thing I know, IT WAS WORKING!!!
GOD IS GOOD! I kept the faith, persevered and things turned in my favor.
I’m still looking for full time employment. I’ve been temping for the last few weeks, taken tests for other jobs, received a contingent offer of employment and even turned down a job. The job I turned down was a job that I wanted, but after meeting with them to continue the process, something just didn’t sit well with me. My “coworkers” weren’t as friendly and the manager seemed unorganized. I was sent on a wild-goose-chase to take my drug test. They didn’t give me an address, phone number or anything. Just told me to turn here, make a right there and it’ll be behind Ekerd’s. Well I didn’t find it. So I came home, called the manager and told her I had to decline the job offer. She wanted to know “why why why.” And I told her that today’s events didn’t sit well with me. She had maaaad attitude. Her reaction confirmed that I had made the right decision not to go with them.
The Lord knows my needs. He’s heard my prayers. And I’m believing Him to give me the desires of my heart. I want a job that will financially allow me to pay my tithes, pay my parents, pay my bills and have a little extra money left over without struggling. I have faith that He will provide.
