So my 31 day series isn't going to be 31 days...eep! I must admit to thinking it's for a pretty fabulous reason though. :) The last few days have been quiet because I have been so very busy.
Let me tell you a little story.....
The story starts in September but the culmination came the week I shared about impossible prayers including the man who showed me what faith meant, how much I needed to start believing in the impossible, and and the challenge to ask Him for something impossible.
You see at the beginning of September I applied for a job...the interview went really great and I came home wanting the job more than ever.
I was so disappointed and feeling pretty hopeless... yet could not bring myself to apply for other jobs. It became my impossible prayer request. This job. Every night I would ask God for the job even though I was feeling hopeless. I was so unsure of what to do next and feeling confused.
Yet I decided to move forward...with a pretty sad heart.
Then just almost 2 weeks ago I got a call. In fact the call came the day after I issued the ask God for the impossible prayer challenge. That Thursday night I once again asked Him for this job. That Friday afternoon I got a call...It was from the job I had interviewed for and they offered me the position... so could I move and start in about a week?
So last week I packed my stuff, bought some furniture and moved into a lovely little apartment.
Monday...I started work and it was like I had finally found something my heart had so wanted.
The last few days have been overwhelming. In a beautiful way. I already love this job.
It's a gift.
One that will challenge me and make me grow.
It's my impossible prayer answered in such a way I cannot believe it's happening.
My heart has been filled with gratitude toward my Jesus for answering my prayer.
I don't think it's a coincidence that all of this came about during this series...and during the week about impossible prayers. This series has taught me so much...and He has shown Himself to me in some beautiful ways.
I ran across a note on my phone today in which I had written...
Prayer is the language of love.
My heart finds that so true tonight.
I hope this series has helped you or encouraged you or challenged you in some way. The next few days are full of fabulous guest posts, a quotable, and of course Sunday is prayer day here on CJB.
So this will be my last post for the series... and one I find some incredibly appropriate because it illustrates the power of prayer and the bigness of our God.
Keeping praying lovelies. Ask for the impossible. Have conversations with Him.
Believe in the impossible and ask Him for it. He makes things possible.
That's what I have learned this month.
I hope you too have learned something this month and would love to hear about it in the comments. :)
