Needless to say I got really excited. There was skipping involved.
After e-mailing said youth director (via facebook, which has been rather weird lately, at least for me) he e-mails me back confirming my question and offering to send an application if I'll send my e-mail address. Perfect. The clouds opened up and the angels sang. Now it's just a waiting game, not to mention one where God is teaching me to trust and to wait patiently. At this point there is nothing I can do but pray, and if He wants me in this job, then there will be nothing to stop that. But I WORRY! I'm in Peru and might not get back until July. Will this 'perfect job' wait for that? What if facebook, which won't let me reply to messages at the moment, dropped the one I was able to send and the guy never got it? What if I just plain don't get it? It's so perfect! It's close to my family (something I've really been missing here), it's something I've always wanted to do, and I know people at the church. Needless to say, the past four or five days have made me a bit nervous. However, I'm reminded of God's promise to Abraham. He said that even in his old age, Abraham would have a child through Sarah who was barren. Though my situation is not nearly as astronomically important as Abraham's, it is still important to me and Abraham's story reminds me that God's plan is perfect, and that all I have to do is trust. Psalm 46:10 says "Be still and know that I am God." I need to learn to simply be still, and that no matter what happens, His plans are for the best.
