Some of you may not know that, since November, Jonathan has been out of full time work. But God has totally provided. He is good.
During a 40 Days of prayer series at my church, Jonathan and I decided to pray specifically for his job situation. As I recall, we asked for God's timing and a specific salary amount. After 6 months or so I thought the answer had come. Jonathan had an interview last Tuesday for a position he was interested in. This was followed by a second interview on Friday morning. The second interview ended with a job offer! The salary amount was $2,500 more than what we asked for. God is good!
Around 7:00 Friday night Jonathan got a call from his potential boss. His boss, in his enthusiasm, prematurely offered Jonathan the position. He had to talk to a few more people and get back to Jonathan this Monday or Tuesday about the offer. Around 5:00 last night Jonathan got the call, the offer was no longer on the table. The position had been "re-scoped" and he was no longer qualified. This made for a not so joyful evening.
Now, I'm the type of person who tells people things so they'll feel sorry for me. That is not why I am making this post. Right after Jonathan got the initial offer I was calling people and emailing people, telling them about God's provision. Now, after Jonathan's job offer has been taking away, I need to continue to tell people about God's provision. He is still good....this job was just not in His plans for us. I know He will make a way.
pray without ceasing;
in everything give thanks; for this is God's will for in Christ Jesus."
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Here is another example of God's goodness:
