What God wants for you is best

I'm looking to make a change in my life.  I've had a lot of challenges, but I've had victories as well.  God is so good.

I've decided that the job I have isn't what I'm looking for.  Don't get me wrong...I love it.  I love all of the things that I've learned.  I enjoy my co-workers.  My manager is the best boss that I've ever had.  This is a company that doesn't have the petty childishness or harassment that other companies encourage.  Unfortunately, they have a turnover rate that scares me.  In addition, they have the highest deductible insurance that I've ever seen. Although, I have to say that the turnover rate is what scares me the most.  I always feel like I have one foot out the door.  I want to work for a employer that focuses on employee retention, not one that doesn't care about retaining their employees.

I've talked to God about how I feel.  I've applied to several positions, and I've heard from one employer.  I'm really excited, because this is an employer that I've always wanted to work for.  I have talked to God to let Him know that I only want this if He wants this for me.  I've come to a point in my life that I understand that God's best is not want you want, but what He wants for you.

Matthew 7:7 "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you."

Faith Low But Not Gone

Life seems to have brought me another challenge.  I really enjoy my job.  I have the best manager and team.  I really like my co-workers.  The challenge is the job.  I'm becoming overwhelmed and discouraged.  It's a very complicated position.  I do seem to have my victories with this job, but I also have times when I can't seem to resolve issues.  I never feel secure in my position.  This place has the highest turnover I've ever seen.  I'm always scared that I could lose my job.

Right now, I'm putting everything in God's wonderful hands.  I have fear in my heart.  I know that I have lean on God when I feel this way.

I have to admit that I'm so tired.  I know I have to count my blessings.  God will see me through this.  I won't deny that my faith is low but not gone.

My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest. (Exodus 33:14)
