Title: Job
Post by: DGB454 on July 31, 2011, 05:56:02 PM
I live in Michigan. The economy is bad here. I lost my job of 15 years as a Pagkaging Design engineer. My son was about to start college. I was scared to death.  I prayed and put it in Gods hands and sent out my resume's .

A door opened. The job was an hour drive away with a company that I absolutly couldn't  stand working for.
I took a cut in pay to work there but it allowed me to continue to pay the bills. I hated the long drive in to go to a place I didn't like working at. In short.... I was miserable. I continued to thank God for providing.   After 5 months of this I had all but given up on being happy at work again. I was out on my back deck one morning before work.(Alone time with God) I prayed "If this is where You want me then Your will be done." "Show me why you want me here and I will do it. " I told God I couldn't do this on my own and I finally gave it to Him.  Work was still as miserable but my attitude wasn't. I made a connection that turned into a now good friend. I hope to lead her to Christ soon.

  About a month later out of nowhere a job offer came through. I got the new job and I've been workimg there about 6 months now. I still drive an hour 1 way but I don't mind. I love the company and the people I work with. I'm also making more money than ever before. I'm still working on my friend from my last job to lead her to Christ.

Where he leads I will go.
