So, here's my fun fact of the day.
I was rejected.
I was rejected by a company that, for the last three and a half months, I thought I had a strong possibility of working for after graduation. Alas, they do not a designer. And, if we're being honest - it was very discouraging.
I would not classify the job search as boring, but definitely emotional, and has definitely been testing my faith. I
get my hopes up, I get excited, and then disappointed, and scared. It
can make you feel inadequate, unwanted, confused, and frustrated.
"He has placed the land in front of you. Don't be afraid! Don't be discouraged! The Lord your God is going ahead of you. You saw how the Lord your God cared for you ALL along the way as you traveled through the wilderness, just as a father cares for his child. Now He has brought you to this place. He goes before you, looking for the best place to camp, guiding you..." - (pieces of) Deut. 1:21-33
This passage (or bits of a passage) is a reminder that I have all I need right now, and I will have all that I need. My God chose me, and loves me - and though I don't understand a lot of things right now... He is in complete control. Searching for a job can be frustrating to the point that it lowers your confidence, so even though I may be struggling with that - I have to be confident in His sovereignty.
My hope can only be in Him - all other ground is sinking sand.
I have to believe that He has a plan, and I know He does.
