I set the alarm nice and early and got up that morning two hours before I had to be there. My stomach was still nervous and my mouth, dry.
“Why do I get myself so frazzled?” I asked myself, out loud.
I was thinking so much about the interview I forgot one thing...To pray! So, I sat myself down at the kitchen table with my bible, took a deep breath and began reading and praying. (John 14 chap. vs.27) My peace I give unto you.
Ask and you shall receive, Jesus tells the crowd. I asked for that peace and pictured myself walking to that job holding on to His strong hand like a little child clinging to her Dad. How could anyone make me anxious or afraid with a Great Almighty Father on your side?
Now it was up to me not to let go of His hand.
I could feel a sudden calm come over me as I approached the office where I was to be interviewed. It lasted about a half hour and the gentleman that spoke to me told me he’d call me in a day or two.
I didn’t get that job, but I know it wasn’t because of being nervous or afraid. A few weeks later I landed a job that met my skills more comfortably.
Every day before work I remember to pray and know His Grace is Sufficient for every circumstance.
