Carol's Journey
Email Poem | Today's Poetry

Much of our life is spent waiting
At times it can be very draining
Then opportunity comes our way
God has been leading day by day

An acrostic as shared by a friend
Leaves open on whom we depend
To WAIT is While Asking I Trust
Only God is holy, faithful, and just

After four months in my job search
Dates and numbers no value as such
But it is seventh month and also day
This week agency seven came my way

With two potential positions pending
I see God's hand from the beginning
Two agencies I had applied to before
It was not His time to open the doors

First agency, submitted resume in May
For temp accounting position that day
One month later applied again to Noll
Contacted then and added to their roll

After a month, 10-key I have not passed
With second attempt, I came close at last
A week later next step still waiting to hear
Hard to reach by email or phone very clear

Other agency I also submitted resume in May
For accounts payable position opening that day
Last week applied for data entry with Aerotek
I sense earlier God responded and said not yet

Prior contact with both did not match my skills
But I believe God had lessons to teach me still
Perseverance and patience in failed 10-key tests
Depending on Him more, He always knows best

Now God is giving me an opportunity with Aerotek
Allowing me to see renewed hope He has for me yet
In one day the man at Aerotek exceeded all agencies
Calling me several times with any updated changes

When client company changed their mind in Bellevue
He had a similar position in convenient downtown too
Given company name, I asked him about parking fees
Later checked website, visitor parking on site with ease

He has submitted my resume to the potential company
It would be for 2-4 weeks if I am given the opportunity
As I ask for Your will, Lord, help me to patiently wait
I know Your timing is perfect and You are never late

God can use results of a short term data entry position
As a wake-up call to Noll in seeing my qualifications
Per Aerotek, I advised Noll of the pending job nature
Making it clear I was still interested in the near future

If that turned off communication or another reason
Then maybe God did close that door in His season
I will attempt reconciliation for wrong on my part
Only God knows my desires from within my heart
