 Carol's Journey

New Job Not Meant to Be

New temp job began this past Monday
Had cough when I went to work that day
Health got worse with fever that night
Tuesday sensed job end could be in sight

Phoned agency to inform them of my absence
Informed company had very strict attendance
During first 30 days could only miss one day
I knew my health was more important anyway

Doctors all booked but saw nurse mid-morning
Influenza was her diagnosis after her examining
Had a flu shot but must have weakened immunity
She wrote a 5-day prescription to reduce severity

Nurse said I could go to work if my fever was gone
Still had fever Wednesday so I knew job was done
Also too weak to consider going to work anyway
God is in control He will send another job my way

Even after the first day of training was complete
There was so much to learn with set goals to meet
Yes a curve would have been allowed at the start
God may have spared me for a reason He will impart

Meanwhile I am in the care of our Great Physician
He will supply all my needs according to His provision
Getting physically stronger with improved appetite today
Step by step God will restore me to health more each day
