 God Intervenes (with note 1/19)
Lord, Your holy Word in Isaiah 55:11 says
Your ways and thoughts are higher always
Many times in my life I have clearly seen
Your divine guidance by how You intervene

Monday this week two agencies I had emailed
Online accounts payable class now completed
I would follow up in two weeks after a review
Then schedule an appointment with them too

Same morning an email came from a lady at church
Her prayers along with others encourages me so much
She shared about a friend going to voc rehabilitation
I was given her name to call and a link for information

My first concern was how it would affect unemployment
Since being fully able to work is one major requirement
With voc rehab, doctor must provide extent of disability
I realized I was trying to rationalize rehab as a possibility

I decided to leave a message for lady's friend I was given
Upon her call, I felt safe to confide not knowing her even
Tuesday I contacted voc rehab and asked some questions
Not all answered, but set me up Thursday for orientation

Wednesday afternoon, an agency I emailed Monday called
More than a coincidence, but truly God's timing above all
She had a two week temp data entry position assisting A/P
As some details were described, I sensed it was meant to be

After asking for time to cancel an appointment on Thursday
She agreed if I called her back within an hour that same day
Cancelled voc rehab, which they have twice a week sessions
Kept doctor appointment February 3rd for future documentation

When I accepted the position to start January 16th, she was relieved
Someone else backed out, now I am her friend by filling her need
Background check form came by email and submitted Wednesday
Then on Thursday morning I updated my paperwork at the agency

Concerns of employment reference from job last March now resolved
She does not contact any agency directly, only the location I worked
Also encouraged when she said this job is mine, so don't go anywhere
Pending background check results in 2-3 days, I see no problem there

Lord, thank You for Your timing in opening this door of opportunity
Prepare me where I lack experience to handle new job responsibility
I have become very slack in my sleep schedule, help my body re-adapt
Step by step, in days ahead, only by Your strength can I accomplish that
