Part 2 - A Job In God's Hands

     My husband got a new job.
I don't know if you remember my post entitled 'A Job In God's Hands.' In case you don't remember it, the brief overview is this: Dominic's boss said he was going to be letting him go, but that he could continue to work with their company until he found a different job. 
     We were worried that at any moment his boss was going to cut him for good, and then a month went by. After we had applied for countless jobs, and Dom had countless interviews, finally a company contacted him.

     'Hi Dominic,
     I found your resume online. Please reply to this email if you are interested in discussing the following job opening.'

     He replied immediately, and after two interviews with the company, he got the job! Just as Dominic was beginning to feel as if he would never find a permanent job, God provided a great opportunity. The position is a two dollar pay cut from his previous job, but raises are offered regularly, there is plenty of room to move up in the company, and enough overtime to make up the difference.
     We feel so grateful to the Lord.
     Something I've learned, is that everything eventually works out for the better. When we first found out that Dominic needed to find a new job, we were worried, stressed, and disappointed. Everything was beginning to feel like an uphill battle. It was so disheartening, and we thought things would never work out. But they did. 
     There is no reason to be worried. We need to give all of our worries, fears, and stress to Jesus, with open hands, surrender ourselves to His will, because He will always sustain us, protect us, hold us above the water when we feel as if we are going to drown. God has always carried us through, regardless of how little faith we had, He has always showed to us that we need not worry. We have learned to put our faith in Him more and more with every battle. And God always keeps His promises. He will provide us the things that He knows we have need of, just as He always has. We must trust in the Lord.

"Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things." -- Matthew 6:31-32

"But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus." -- Philippians 4:19
