A Time of Sacred Waiting

By Stan Guthrie

When you are looking for a job, you want it “over with” as soon as possible. You want to get back into a routine. You want to be able to say something other than “I’m between jobs” when someone asks what you do. You want to pay the bills without angst. You want to keep your home. You want health insurance.

But as someone who has struggled with an involuntary job search more than once, let me suggest that you not rush through the process too quickly. Or at least while you are striding purposefully toward that next position, keep your eyes and ears open. God may be speaking to you.
