Asking God for a sign isn't always smart!

Friday, March 28, 2014

When you are trying to figure out your way, and you have been praying and still struggling, and you ask God for a sign, watch out!!!

The sign God gives may not always be the one you want, and it may not always leave you with warm fuzzies!

I have been looking for a job, and I had an offer for one. My hubby wasn't really satisfied with the job, and I was struggling with whether to take it or not. I mean, some income is better than no income, but do I take a job knowing that I might still be looking for a better one?? or do I jump into this one with both feet and give it a go?? or, do I pass this up and hope something better will come along BEFORE my unemployment runs out in May?

So I prayed. Alot. And, on Sunday at church, I asked God to show me the path he wanted me to take. "Send me a sign"....

I got my sign alright... the Tie Rod in my car went bad. $450 to fix it!! Ok, job needed to pay for unbudgeted car repair. Guess I'm taking that job eh?? LOL.

Truthfully, I do feel it was the nudge needed to make me see the "light". But, it was also the nudge my hubby needed to be ok with the job as well. A bit of negotiation on salary and days off and voila...a job that will be good for all of us. :)

So, I'm supposed to start on Tuesday (April 1 - April Fools Day?!?!??! YIKES). I'm excited and nervous, and now, I have a million loose ends to tie up before Tuesday. :)

    Mom2acat is right - it may be the beginning of a wonderful position there!

By the way - do NOT pray for patience......He may make you wait for it!

    I know where you are coming from. Have been asking for signs and reasoning from God as things in our life are really BAD at this moment.

Guess I will find out in his time as he does not want me to know what his plan is yet

    You can still take the job while continuing to look for something better, at least you will have money coming in while you are looking. And you never know; once you start this new job and get use to it, it might be better than you expected it to be.
