Another Job Interview

Oh Lord, it’s another job interview. This could be a new beginning or another disappointing failure. God, he needs a success—he’s had so many disappointments. Could this be the job that he will finally stick with? Will he find fulfillment and responsibility with this position? Will he discover his passion and purpose in this job? Will they even consider him for it?

For I know the plans that I have for you declares the Lord, “plans for welfare and not calamity—to give you a future and a hope.” (NASB) Jeremiah 29:11

DECLARES the Lord! Not suggests the Lord, not mentions the Lord, not a postscript from the Lord. The Lord DECLARES—“I know the plans I have for you.” This seems pretty certain! God knows the future and His plans are for good; they will not harm us. This is TRUTH. God has provided a blueprint for a hopeful future. His agenda is divine and unshakable. God DECLARES his personal plan for each of us, which promises boundless hope.

Response Prayer:

Lord; direct my son to your plan for his life. Thank you for the confidence I can have in your divine design for each of our lives. I will rest in the assurance of your provision of grace, strength, hope and love. I release my worries and give my son to your plans.

Amen! Did you get instructions for easier insertion of the links to other blogs? If so, can you please pass them on. I'd like to add new ones, but hate the hassle.

Thanks for posting recently at my blog. Came over to say hi and will be praying for your son's job situation. Could use some prayers for my youngest son, too. Waiting on the outcome of a serious situation that needs to be resolved in a few weeks.

We mothers have to stick together:-).

hugs & blessings,

My dad died when I was 17, my brother was 16. He was already going through a tough time, Dad's death hightened the problems.

My brother went off the deep end, didn't do well for years. Good news is, he did hit bottom but found help there. He is a Christian and is now doing much better, in his own way.

The YEARS of praying and waiting that my mom put in over him...

My boys are young, but I'm a firm believer that we will NEVER stop worrying about them. Your son is very fortunate to have such a caring mom as yourself.

Your son sounds a lot like my husband. He floundered for years trying to find what was right for him. We now joke about how he found his career by the process of elimination. He had many jobs that just about killed him but the good news is, after many years of hard work he was finally recognized for what he's worth. That's how we ended up in Colorado. It took some time but built his character in the process...
