Jeremy is still in the process of interviewing.



Not so much fun.

But being completely honest here? I needed this process to drag out. I've had the wrong attitude about the whole thing. I've been trusting in a new job rather than in God to take care of us. So God and I have been wrestling for several weeks now about where I plan to place my trust.

God (and I) finally won!

I'm not going to lie to you. I still have small skirmishes from moment to moment. But God has reminded me (over and over and over and over...) that He only does what is best. He's proved it my whole life long, and He says it in His Word. I know He doesn't lie. So even if I can't see that what He has done is best, I can relax, knowing that it really is. That's a peaceful feeling!

Having said all that, I also needed to realize that this struggle is not really about me getting a peaceful feeling. It is about the eternal fight going on between Satan and God. Satan wants so badly to hurt God that he will use any means necessary. He knows how much God loves me (isn't that awesome?) so he knows that if I start doubting God's love for me, or His ability to take care of me it will hurt God.

I refuse (with God's help) to be a tool used by Satan to hurt my Lord. I LOVE my Lord!

Therefore, the outcome of this LOOOOOONG interviewing process is irrelevant. To quote one of my favorite movies (Facing the Giants) "If we win, we praise Him, and if we lose, we praise Him." Because He's awesome and worthy to be praised!

Yay for my God!

(But you can still pray for us to get the job! :-)
