So, I need a bit of a favor....

Can I first start off by saying that I am so thankful to have made such amazing friends through this crazy thing called blogging.
It is so cool to log on and see such heartfelt comments from people that I didn't even know a few short months ago.
So, in the spirit of new found friendships I have a favor to ask of you.
I need your prayers.

Last May I graduated with my Masters in Education and I began the long journey to finding a job. I went to one job fair which was more like a circus full of education graduates running around for the last piece of bread and left without having much hope.
As the summer went on I had a couple of interviews but nothing that really amounted to much but I knew that God had a plan.
Even as the end of the summer approached and August rolled around I still believed,
God had a plan.
And, since God is so amazingly cool I was blessed to get a job as a para-teacher (co-teacher) in a great school district making a very reasonable amount of money.
I love the kids, love the district, I love EVERYTHING about my job.
Except that it won't be here next year.
The grant that is being used to pay our paychecks is not being renewed so as of the middle of May I go back to being unemployed.


Here's the thing though.
I still know that God will provide.
I have a couple of interviews lined up for jobs that I'm not even sure that I want.
But God as already provided those interviews.
And tomorrow I am going to a huge education job fair where I will get the chance to actually sit down and interview with multiple districts.
Again, God has provided.

But I'm being selfish.
Because I want to DEMAND from God that I get a job in a district, with benefits, and a good paycheck, and retirement.
I want to plead with him so that I can stop feeling like I am the only thing keeping us from being able to lower the price of our house enough to sell it and move into a bigger home, start a family, etc.
I am selfish.

I really really, REALLY, want a job.
And I have taken a huge step of faith in saying that I will have a job next year.
So, here's the thing.
I need some help! If you could please lift me up in your prayers that God would come through and just totally amaze me and send me a job in a district somewhere, that would be amazing!
I never really ask for prayers for myself but I would soooo appreciate it.
I know that God is good.
And I know that God is great.
And I KNOW that God will provide.
I just wish it would happen sooner rather than later.
The anxiety is about to kill me.


  1. Praying for you! One thing I know for sure is that God is indeed a provider. Whether he provides in the way that we desire or not, we can be certain that he will provide for our every need. Good luck!

  2. Your are so right, God makes the plans and will provide ~ just keep listening :) Prayers to you!!! Good luck!

  3. Praying for you lady. I know you will find the perfect job. The job hunt is scary business... I know that first hand! I am not a teacher but my mom teachers 2nd grade, and I have heard so many stories about all of the cut backs and increases in class size etc. Like Lauren above me said, He will provide for every need. Have faith in that :)

  4. Keeping you in my prayers... I am in same boat as you right now interviewing for education jobs next year... scary, but God works in awesome ways!
