Yesterday (as you read this), I had a super-secret job interview.
I didn’t say anything about it. I could’ve asked you all to pray for me, or for all of you to send me your positive thoughts, or whatever, but … I really needed to do this one alone. It isn’t that I’m trying to distance from my friends or anything; Lord knows, I need each and every one of you and call on you more than I should. But I needed to know I could rally myself, marshal my resources, and do something about my situation, for myself. I needed to learn something along the way, too. I feel the mission was a success.
No, that doesn’t mean I got the job. It means I did something I don’t usually do, and I did it in a way I normally wouldn’t do such things. And it went great. I don’t know how I did in the job interview, frankly, and I didn’t do as well on my Wonderlic assessment (written this time) as I wanted to, but I succeeded in a personal way, in a deep and meaningful way for me as a human being, as a Christian. It means a lot to me and I’m still sort of giddy about it.
I don’t know how this will all turn out – as far as I’m concerned that aspect is in God’s hands now – but I did my best in everything I set out to do and there’s nothing more I can do. And I can lay my head down on the pillow with complete confidence in that, come what may.
I learned valuable lessons today. Those are things I’ll carry with me for the rest of my life, I hope. And I feel I’m a different man than I was before I went on that interview, for the better. I sure hope so, at least.
Thank you all for being such wonderful friends and for supporting me every chance you get. I deeply appreciate you all. I’m sure I’ll be asking for your love and prayers again soon.
For the record, I hate tests where you have to color in the stupid little ovals. They SUCK ASS.
