It’s been raining pretty thick and hard the last couple days – but that’s okay! It contributes to the coming of spring. 🙂

Yesterday I went into town and visited at least a dozen places, giving out my resume, shaking hands, smiling, driving here then there… It was draining, but necessary… I had a blessing when I visited Subway (near the end of my job hunting), and the manager was able to schedule me for an interview the next day! So I went in again today and had a great interview.

My view of Subway and enjoyment of working there have been kinda tainted after my previous experience with my last manager… but I still enjoyed the work, and it would be a blessing from God to have a job! Hopefully I’ll hear back from them soon.

The thing that gets me though job hunting, and job interviews, and worry and fret… is God. The knowledge that He is constant, and will forever exist, and that His love is faithful… knowing that He’s always there refreshes my soul like nothing else can. Everything that happens on this earth is only surface storms. My ship – my life – cannot be capsized, as I have my hope in God as a firm and secure anchor to my soul!

Another upside to today is I got a CD by “Future of Forestry”. Their music seemed to suit this beautifully green and grey, rainy day, and some of the songs definitely brought back memories as I hadn’t heard them in a long time – mainly “Words That You Say”. I had posted the lyrics a while ago here. This song reminds me of “Heart of Worship” as it talks about our worship becoming more than the songs we sing…

Teach me to wholly offer
More than words that I can sing
So I become the song I bring

I think this is such a beautiful way to phrase what our worship should look like… I don’t want to just sing to God that He is holy, that I’m thankful, that He gives me courage for my life – I want to tell Him through my actions everyday! I want the whole of my life to be a beautiful song that brings God pleasure as I sing it to Him.

I don’t want to just tell God I desire Him and long to seek Him, I want to show Him through my actions.

 

“Surely God is my salvation;
I will trust and not be afraid.
The LORD, Yahweh himself, is my strength and my defense;
he has become my salvation.”
With joy you will draw water
from the wells of salvation.

Isaiah 12
