I’m Sorry …

So, I had intended to post today and apologize for my most recent blog posts and the direction they were taking.  You guys know I’m looking for a job, and that seems to take over my every waking thought here lately.  I sat down the other night and typed this out so that I could post it at my next internet access opportunity.  Here is what I wanted to say : 

—————

I feel like I should apologize to you guys … for my actions.

I get on my blog time and time again talking about how wonderful God is and how much He does and provides for my family.  I try to encourage others in the process, showing them that GOD IS AWESOME and He’s got your back and He’s always perfect in His will and timing.  Then, I get on my blog and I make myself look like an idiot begging for prayers that I get a job or that we are OK financially, or whatever.  

I’m not practicing what I “preach” and it’s taken me a while to realize that.  I am sorry for that.

I sincerely appreciate everyone that encourages me and prays for me.  I’d by lying if I said I wasn’t a little nervous and scared about our job situation, but – with the gentle reminders from others – I’ve been able to SEE that this is God’s plan and I need to just BE STILL and know that HE is God and that He’s going to take care of us.  I need to stop crying and whining around about everything we don’t have at this moment.  

I’m basically annoying myself.

So, again – I’m sorry for my blog posts lately.  I think I might even delete them.  I will try to practice my own advice from now on and look to Him for everything we need.  

Thanks for always being so awesome, guys!

I’m so happy that I was able to take a step back – look at my actions and my thoughts – and tone them down a little bit.  I’m going to try my best to NEVER let myself get carried away like that again.  It’s at the top of my list of things I’m working on.

A close 2nd on that list of things I’m working on, is finding a suitable business casual wardrobe because I was hired for a job this past Friday.  (insert hallelujah chorus here)  The job I was hired for is a temporary position at Mississippi State. 

Answer to prayer # 1 : Allow me to get my foot in the door SOMEWHERE at Mississippi State. 

The department I’m working for has a permanent position opening up in the near future that I feel like would be a great fit for me.  My CURRENT prayer is that I’m able to do this temporary job to the best of my ability and I’m able to slide into a permanent position with Mississippi State.  

Right now, God is giving me exactly what I have prayed for.. exactly what I’ve asked for over the last several months.  Even though I whined and cried around about it, He gave me what I wanted.  It makes me feel even MORE guilty and ashamed for how I have acted! I am so beyond thankful and humbled that He would do that for me.  I am SO thankful He is giving me the opportunity to do something I REALLY wanted to do at a place I REALLY wanted to do it.  

Over the past few days I’ve kept telling myself to just BE STILL.  Chill out.  I know God is God and He is capable of anything and everything.  He has a plan for me and He knows exactly what He’s doing.  His timing is perfect.  I just need to be still and allow His blessings to cover me.  

And that’s what I plan to do.

Woohoo!!
