“I’m not to sure if you would be interested in this job but you came to mind when I read the job description.” As I read the job posting, I kept saying – it’s like God created this job just for me. The moment I read the email from Theresa a chain of events were put into motion.
Like any brave dreamer, I called my mother to tell her about the opportunity and ask her if I should apply. Emotionally I was rather weary. My current job had a series of events occur which had me questioning if I would have a job by the end of the school year. I needed someone to see beyond my current circumstances who could give me clear guidance. Moments after reading description, my mother also agreed that she thought the job was perfect for me.
It still took me a couple of days to send in my cover letter and resume but I finally hit the send button on a Tuesday morning. Shortly after sending the email I reached out to my tribe and asked for prayer for favor and to make my resume stand out above all the rest.
A week later I was contacted and invited to a phone interview on Friday. Excited I sent out another prayer request to my tribe for my upcoming interview. Then the first miracle occurred, I was contacted prior to my first phone interview, to save the date for my second interview on Saturday if I was recommended for the next round. It was clear to me that God was moving on my behalf and I would make it to round 2.
I soared through the first two rounds and had been invited to the third round of interviews. I sent out an email update and another prayer request to my tribe for wisdom. Immediately Theresa emailed back and gave sound advice for my upcoming interview – PREPARE, PREPARE, PREPARE
As I prepared for my interview, I asked God to give me wisdom on what I needed to do to stand out. He gave me the idea of creating tangible items to bring to the interview. Give the interview panel samples of what my vision would look like in the day to day if given the job. This also allowed me the opportunity to show my creative side and invite them to get to know the real me.
Round three was the INTENSE interview and it was grueling. At one point, I was becoming extremely nervous and almost panicked. But I sent out a quick text to my tribe to pray for peace and talk about prayers being answered immediately. Peace filled me and the atmosphere. I was a given a God confidence that God had created me for this job. I just needed to relax and trust that he was with me every step of the way. (<====Click to Tweet)
To be honest it was the preparation for the multiple rounds of interviews which made me stand out as the top candidate. It was the tribe standing in prayer with me every step of the way which made the waiting bearable. “Be still and know I am God (Psalm 46:10)” became my mantra and reminder that God was going before me and making a way.
If you find yourself in the waiting, trust the stillness. Ask God if there is anything you need to take action on and do that. And surround yourself with prayer warriors that will lift you up. God is honored in these small steps of faith and might just take you on an adventure ride like He did for me!
Oh let’s not forget the exciting news and the best part – I GOT THE JOB! GO JESUS GO!
