Finding a Job & Growing my Faith

I graduated from Texas A&M with my second degree in four and a half years in Dec 2015 and was only 22 years old. I just *knew* I would get a job right out of the gate, but boy was I wrong. I prayed for my first couple of interviews but just had that “gut feeling” that I would get what I wanted quickly. After receiving denials for those first interviews, I was definitely bummed but knew God had something in store for me. Right after my denial email for the job that I really wanted and just knew I would get, the first song I heard on the radio (KSBJ of course because they always play the right song at the right time) was Just Be Held by Casting Crowns. The line that says, “Your world’s not falling apart, it’s falling into place!” spoke to me so clearly, and I knew that God had something in store for me down the road, it just wasn’t the right time. I kept putting in application after application with no luck but I knew something was coming.



Looking back on just a few months ago, I can see that I had blind faith and knew God would eventually provide, not because I was genuinely leaning on him and trusting him but because God wouldn’t let me fail right? Now, I’m 9 months out of school, still with no job, but God is really showing me what it means to actually trust him and lean on him and walk with him not just knowing in the back of my mind that he’ll come through for me.



Since this realization, I’ve gotten involved with a new church in College Station. The first Sunday I went, the pastor was beginning a new sermon series. And guess what the topic of the sermon series was? Five Essentials for Growth (in Your Faith)!! Here I was, knowing that God was working on me, but not really knowing what to do. So I walk into church and there is a giant here-is-exactly-what-you-need! And it doesn’t stop there. 3 weeks in a row, as I’m leaving church, Lauren Daigle’s “I Will Trust In You” comes on KSBJ before I even make it home just right down the street. Each time, I’m left in tears and just sing my heart out because it is so incredibly applicable to my life right now. I’m so thankful that I’m learning to really grow my faith and walk with Christ instead of just apathetically slothing through my trials knowing that God will do the work to take care of me.
