My boyfriend, Jerrod, has been looking for a new job for several months. He’s talented and experienced in his field of game programming and design, but for some reason he hasn’t had many offers lately. Then this company in Newport Beach called him and they did a phone interview and that went really well. It turns out that his interviewer knew one of his references. So they called him in for an in-person interview. I was at VBS that day working in the pre-K class, and at the time of the interview, I almost sat my four year olds down to pray with me. I was praying for him, and for his interviewer, and I know that my grandparents were praying for him too. He finally called me to say that he was done, and it went really well. They took him out to lunch and he got to meet pretty much the whole programming team, and he liked them alot.
The next day I was at VBS again, this time in the Kindergarden room, and at around 11am he texted me to say he had gotten an offer, and they had even offered him a little more than he asked for, which is great. When VBS was over, I went down to the nursery where my grandmother was and told her about the news. I think she was even more excited than I was! I think she would’ve jumped up if she hadn’t been holding a baby.
“Do you know what this means?” She asked me.
“That he’s going to move to Orange County?” I suggested.
“How good is God?” my grandmother prompted.
Yeah, God is good. If I didn’t know that already, I would have learned from this. The past few weeks have certainly been a testament to it.
The Lord is good to all, and His mercies are over all His works.
Not only that, but the lease on Jerrod’s apartment in Burbank isn’t up until March, so he would have had to pay to break his lease. By the grace of God, the company that owns his apartments also owns several others in the area he needs to move to, and he can just transfer his lease! I went with him a few days ago to look at the Huntington Beach apartments, and they’re really nice. There are lots of trees, the floorplan looked really cute, and there was one available on the bottom that had it’s window facing trees and stuff with a nice patio and really shady. An elderly lady lives there and is moving to assisted living, so it’s like, really clean and stuff. I just knew that was the one and I started jumping up and down telling him to get it right then. He put down a deposit, and ended up going back a few days later to sign the papers and make it official. He’ll be moving in the week of August 8th.
If that weren’t enough, the same week he did the phone interview with his new company, I started getting lots of jobs too. A website needed hosting, and I offered them a good deal and help with the setup. Then a friend needed some logos made and his company liked them so much, I ended up doing some more for him. Then my mom’s friend needed some computer lessons, so I went to her house and gave her a session, and now I’m going back again on Saturday.
And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
