I took advantage of every avenue I knew of to look for work. Company after company would approach me on LinkedIn and other sites to say they were interested in me. I would send off my resume, go in for interviews and be told that I was a great candidate for the job. Then, I would get that email or phone call, telling me that they were "going" with someone else. They were never able to tell my why they weren't hiring me.
Once again, I learned my lesson and this time, it sunk down in my heart. A chain of seemingly random events began, starting last summer. I met this person here; they introduced me to that person there; who started hanging out with friends that I hang out with, and sure enough, everything came together, without me even having a hand in it. I have been offered a position with a wonderful company that is far and above any of those other jobs that I so desperately hoped for. God's timing...He had to work out all the details. He had to nudge each person in the chain of events, to play their part in bringing this opportunity across my path. That's why, Dear One, it's so important to be open to the leading of the Lord. He may want to use you to bless someone else and if you're not paying attention, you could miss the opportunity to be a blessing.
