Potential job
« on: August 21, 2013, 12:57:17 AM »
Asking all my fellow OC.net folks to pray for me. I am moving from WA to NC, and had to give up my current job of course which I loved.

I'm now being considered for a job in NC at a homeless shelter for pregnant women and children as a resident counselor; I am amazed I am even in the consideration pool since I'm 4,000 miles away and was up front about not being there for 6wk at least. I'm sending in my documents and transcripts tomorrow...I feel selfish asking however I would love to get this position.

Lord have mercy.
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai

Lord, have mercy.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

Lord, have mercy.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6
