This is a praise post. This post is going to be an encouraging, exciting, and uplifting post about something cool God did today.
Well, I have this friend. Her name is Tessa. She just graduated with her degree in elementary education from Clemson University. She has been looking for a job since graduation, which isn’t that long but in this economy most graduates are expecting to wait a long time for a job. It doesn’t matter how qualified you are in the job world. There are so many people who are qualified that are having a hard time finding work. It’s tough!
Today, I woke up late and was getting ready pretty quickly. I was putting on my mascara when God put on my heart to pray for Tessa to get a job today. So, I said a quick little prayer asking God to provide for her and open this door. She had a job interview last week and the lady accidentally forgot. So she went back in again this week for a second interview.
On my way from my support appointment to pick up a friend, I briefly called her and left her a message saying, “Hey girl, I prayed for you to get a job today. Let me know how everything is. God loves to bless us and provide.”
At around 2 o’clock today I got a text from Tessa saying, “I’m going into work right now, but He did! I got offered a job today!” So. Cool.
Now, here’s something else I processed today. Did God need me to pray that for Tessa in order for Him to provide her with a job? No. Not at all. But there’s something super sweet about Him allowing me to be a part of that. We tend to give people, or even fate, the credit for God’s hand mightily moving in our lives. God wants us to notice the things He’s doing. It gives Him the glory. He is faithful to provide! I’m honored and blessed that I could see a prayer answered in such little time. Amazing! I’m thankful
Anyways, another praise: I prayed this week to get to 50% overall raised. I am currently at 52% of my goal. Don’t worry, I did in fact do a celebratory dance to Toto’s Africa.
And then celebrated with lemon cookies, drawing a lion, and singing praise songs. Giving praise where praise is due. Thank you Lord for your faithfulness and provision!
I just love when God does stuff like this. I’m loving that He hears. And when we’re open and willing to surrender things, He works them out for our good! And He shows His faithfulness. Are you willing to see Him?
