Thankful Thursday - Unanswered Prayers

This week's hostess is Lois. Please visit her for a list of participants.

I am currently looking for a job. I have spent a bit of time this last week applying for jobs, filling out applications, reading the "Thank you, we have nothing for you at this time but we appreciate your interest" letters, and applying for more jobs.

I have, needless to say, been praying that I get a job.

I need to remember to thank God for the unanswered prayers. I need to remember to trust God that, if I didn't get a specific job, it is because He has something better in mind. I need to remember that "no" is also an answer. I need to remember that I have faith and to lean on my faith.

I need to remember that the best prayer that I know, the only one I really need, is this:

Thy Will Be Done.

I also need to thank Lisa for giving me this marvelous award. Those who know me will know how much this particular award means. Thanks, Lisa and, as always, thank to Julie to this chance to give thanks publicly.

I love Garth. My fav? The River.
I just got a job working from home. Check out Cloud 10.

Sometimes it is difficult to be patient and not become frustrated in these situations. I'm sure the right job will come along. I have frequently found that the path I have actually taken is better than the one I wanted but was not chosen to take (if that makes sense!)

I love this quote, "When you pray for potatoes, you better have a shovel in your hand."
Congrats. Well-deserved.

I hope you have much success in your job hunting. You're very personable and I know any place would be lucky to have you!

This is one of my favorite songs! It's in God's hands. The right job will come along. I'll keep you in my prayers, that you will get the answer you are waiting for. :)
