More prayers needed!!!

As if this week wasn't emotionally draining as it already was, today I got a phone call that induced a whole other kind of flood of emotions. Brett's property manager has accepted a promotion, meaning her position is available. Brett, being the assistant manager, is really the ideal candidate. He has been there almost two years and has done a great job. He recently got a glowing review that stated that he is completely ready for a promotion. However, per company protocol, the position has to be posted within the company and other candidates will and already have interviewed.

This is the phone call I have been waiting to receive for a long time, however, both Brett and I are kind of overwhelmed. With this promotion, I could have the opportunity to stay home full time with Emersyn and do real estate on the side. This is my hearts desire and has been since I became a mother. This would also let Brett work M-F, another great opportunity for our family. We could start going to church again on Sunday mornings, Brett wouldn't have to miss so many birthday parties and family functions, etc.

I am so nervous to hope, to believe. I need to though. God has been so good to me so far in my life and no matter what happens with this opportunity, He is still good. I get so used to encouraging others to trust in Him, believe that He wants the best for our lives....yet, when I am called to practice what I preach so to speak, I often have those same worries and fears that plague many of the friends I try to encourage.

Brett will be interviewing either Monday or Tuesday. I would appreciate your prayers. The timing of all this with what's going on with my grandma is a little unsettling emotionally like I said, but no matter what, God is good and I truly want His will for my life, even if *gulp* that means I have to work a little longer. I am so so blessed. Please pray for favor for Brett within his company. Thank you!!!

Have a wonderful Sunday everyone.

Ohmygosh, Patti, i hope he gets the job!!! I know what this means... my husband may be up for his boss' job once his boss retires (not that that's going to happen in the near future) & that would open up SUCH opportunities for us (like me staying at home). I will pray pray pray for him!!! <3 ya!

That would be so awesome for you guys! I will be praying and believing with you tomorrow and Tuesday. There's never been a mountain that He couldn't move, never been a valley He couldn't see us through. Let's believe Him at his Word!

I hope the interview went well. Everytime Matt interviews I get so nervous! I can relate to how you feel on some levels..when Matt was trying to become a police officer it took 1.5 years of applying before he got hired. It was so nerve racking! And now, the pressure for me to get a job is just as stressful-as our family life will have so many more opportunities. I will keep you in my thoughts! Brett is such a smart, hard worker...I'm sure good things will come. Keep the faith. -S

Patti, you are the real deal! This is so true! Sometimes when we are in the midst of the trial we lose perspective. You have offered that to others many times... and now you need others to give you perspective... that you are right in the middle of His hands and He has the very best in store for you. I love you and am praying for you and your family.

Praying for you guys during this whirlwind of emotions time! I pray that you have peace for whatever God has in store for you, for either will come with new beginnings and challenges.

I am praying for you, friend!! I specifically pray that you and Brett both feel peace with whatever the outcome is. But, of course, I pray that he gets the job... :)
