What blessed news!

Puck, even if 4 are offered to you, God will still guide you.

I know. LOL The challenge with 4 is to be sure I listen and choose the one I am supposed to, not necessarily the one I want. I say that because one of them is another consulting type job, basically the same thing I was doing before, just for a bigger company. Was it the consulting stuff, (dealing with hundreds of clients) or just consulting in the toxic environment I was in?

But, in the end... What a silly and blessed thing to be whining about. LOL Ugh.

Congrats! My sister is a full time preschool teacher and LOVES her job even after she's been doing it for around 8 years Congrats on the baptism too.....that is fantastic news. Your new church sounds so much like our church, we have a fantastic pastor & wife combo.

And to Puck, congrats on your searching success. I'm positive God will put you exactly where you are supposed to be. That doesn't mean it will be your dream job, or you won't get frustrated, angry, or other things you may not like........but you know to have faith in God's plan. Everything has a reason. I will say a prayer for your guidance and peace

Congrats on the job sparks!

Puck, I think it's awesome that you recognized what that job was doing to you and got out. Most people would have stayed there and let it consume them. Pray, take time to listen, and God will lead you down the right path. :-)

Thank you. It really all comes back to Romans 8:28.

Now, to just LISTEN. LOL

God wouldn't take away your freedom to choose, but He will guide you through it.

Congrats to Spark on her new job and upcoming Baptism

I'm glad you have choices, Puck, and I am sure you will use your faith and judgement to pick the right one for you, at this point in your life.

And Sparks, a GIANT congratulatory ((((HUG)))) for you.

You both deserve the best.

I know how important a good house of worship can be. Our meeting has supported us when we needed support, both financially and spiritually, and rejoiced with us when things have gone well. It is amazing the power of God that there is within a congregation.

I GOT A JOB!!!!!

And it was not even one of the 3 I thought it would be. The first place I interviewed at, my enterprise skills were not a match. They needed somebody who could hit the ground running with a massive scale Exchange migration. I honestly told them that my skills were not on that kind of a scale, yet. FF to today. The person who interviewed me had a position open up and they liked me so much, other than the need for me to have a month to get up to speed with the scale, they just offered it to me without another interview.

Its one of the most humbling things that has ever happened to me. Also, the pay and benefits are unreal. Its a bit of a hike, about 49 miles one way. There is another person there who lives in Lancaster, so maybe we can car (truck in my case, LOL) pool.

Happy dance! THANK YOU all for the prayers and vibes.

Thanks everyone for the support and well wishes.

This was an amazing series of events today. The day started out with a rejection letter in an email from a company he emailed with but his skill set just wasn't quite right for the position and he knew that would be the case after the interview with them but it still really hit him hard and he was a bit down in the dumps.

When he told me about the rejection letter I immediately stopped and prayed and this is exactly what I prayed....

"Dear God, Brian was dealt a hard blow this morning and while we know you will guide us and everything will be just fine his morale is really low right now. He really needs to hear some good news today even if the good news isn't THE job that you want him to have the boost in morale is just what he needs. if it's not the right job you'll tell us and point us in the right direction but he just needs some good news. Please Lord, let him get a phone call or an email with good news to lift his spirits."

I may be paraphrasing but that's essentially what I prayed for.

I kid you not... 5 minutes later the phone rang with the job offer and it was from a company that he really didn't even expect to hear back from lol.
