Disappointment and Faith

Disappointment comes in many sizes. Unfortunately, you can never prepare yourself for the sinking feeling that comes along with it. Mine came today by way of a phone call. I recently put in for a position at a local college and did very well in the phone interview, so much that they called me back to meet the staff and the president. I even skipped out on vacation with my family, that's how important this was to me and how secure I felt about getting the job. I was wrong.

The Dean of Students called me today and let me know that they had offered the position to an internal candidate. However, he did tell me that I "interviewed well and that everyone loved me."  He didn't want to call me until he knew the other candidate had accepted the position.  I know I should be thankful he took the time to call me, but the sting is still there.

Another downfall of this is the fact I was ready to give my notice to my current employer.  It has been a trying year with all the changes being made at the library, that I felt now would be a good time to leave.  Of course, I'm not totally wrong.  I've decided, with much prayer and discussion with my husband, to go ahead and give my notice.  I may take a few classes in the fall.  That's another decision that will need to be made.

This year has been a trying one, but I know that, eventually,things will "work together for my good."  I am thankful for all my friends who have prayed and fasted for me.  I know that God has my life in His hands and that the perfect position will come open, one that He has handpicked just for me.  For now, I will wait.
