My WOW moment journal entry....

Today is Thurs. April, 10th
I need your positive thoughts and prayers right now…. I am shaking to the point of nausea. I have been so worried about hubby's health (extreme depression, strokes, losing strength in limbs, extreme headaches, losing his sight), his job situation (so stressful it is causing health issues already mentioned) and worrying about being able to keep the house should either of the two are lost…

I finally decided I was going to let God take control of the situation and not worry or think about it…. (harder than I thought but doing good so far)

Hubby said he was taking all personal items home and getting ready to resign. (that made the above even harder to do) Then later that evening… I go and check phone messages…. All of a sudden I hear this lady say….

"I am looking for Dawn ******* (I have not used that last name for over 5 years) we had done a resume search to see about filling a position and your resume fits the criteria. I have a medical records position on 16th street in phx available. It pays 12.00 an hour. Please call me if you are interested so we can discuss this offer."

I am nervous about taking this offer or even trying for it as I have missed so much time at work due to prior health issues I would be afraid it would be a problem. I would also have to do a lot of refreshing my brain on this job….. But it would mean I would be making almost as much as hubby is right now at his job…..

God is working and a little faster and right in my face than I am used to….. So my prayers that I would like to ask of you all is to pray that if this is truly an offer given to me because he is working in our lives….. make it more known to me…..

Please God show me that this is truly from you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(I should not have said that to God…… because if I was feeling the rush and right in my face feeling before… I had not felt anything yet!!!)

Today is Friday April 11th……
Something told me to return the phone call this morning.
So I called and let them know that they have my previous married name from 5 years ago.

The lady was very nice and told me about the job. (wages 10-12.00 hr DOE, location, name, dress code and all)
She then proceeded to tell me that the job is a temp to hire position that is looking for an immediate interview and immediate start.

We then began to talk some more and she said hmmmm let me check and see if you were the top choice or the alternate person chosen.

She took a deep breath and said nope you were the top pick for this position.

She then proceeded to ask me if I registered with her and I said yes years ago.

She looked at my information and said yes I see that you registered 7 years ago. (7 is my lucky number)

Then as she was looking things over she said hmmmm this is strange I do not seem to have a resume for you…..
I do not even have a letter or anything telling me to call you….. This is very strange why did I call you I do not understand what is going on here…

I said please do not take offense to this but this has got to be the work of God. She said it sure must be. I told her that she would have my resume in her email before the end of the day. (I emailed it as soon as I got home.)

I could not eat lunch today … I would eat a little and feel nausea…. God is doing things so much and so fast that I cannot believe it…. Not complaining just cannot believe all this is happening.

I went to work today and needed to talk to someone about what was happening so I talked to one of the ladies letting her know not to say anything to anyone…. She was standing up when I told her but she almost fell down when I was done…. She could not believe it….. I called my mom to let her know what was going on and she said OH MY I have to sit down….. that is a big WOW moment….

Then I get home to hubby being home early… Yes my first thought was he was either fired or he quit…
He said he took half the day off… I said you mean they actually let you do that…. He said yes. (they never let him leave early without tons of flak and docking of pay)

He said he was sitting at his desk at work and was preparing his resignation letter in advance.
One of the ladies walked in and talked to him telling him he was not allowed to leave the company. (they all know if he leaves the company is destroyed)

She then proceeded to walk out of the office and into hubby's bosses office and had a long talk with him.

They both agreed that something had to be done because if hubby leaves the company will be no more….

His boss then decided to give hubby back the web design position he was hired for. (he had taken that away from him the day before)

Take away the other IT duties some of which that hubby did not know how to do and said they were going to hire someone to do those other duties. (They have told him for at least 2 years that they refuse to hire anyone else)

We are both in a shock and awe moment…… Please keep us in your prayers that the new job and his changes that are occurring at work continue to move forward.

Oh Dawn!!!
God definitely heard your prayers.
It's like the Footprints poem.
I will keep praying for your and your family and I'm glad that your husband will be able to do the job he was hired to do. I will also pray that the new job for you, even if it's a temp, will work out perfect for you.

That's a wonderful story, Dawn! It's always so encouraging to when others share how God is working in their lives for good!!! Keep trusting and embrace the good things he sends your way!!
