I was having a conversation with a friend the other day about patience. I told her “I think God is constantly teaching me about patience, because that seems the common denominator in almost all my battles. You think I would’ve learned by now, right?”
Well here’s my new lesson on patience.
As a recent college graduate, I have the expectation of having a full time job and I don’t have that. I’ve been passed up for two separate jobs that I really wanted. In the feedback I’ve received, I’ve been told I had all the skills and interviewed great, but then why am I not the one chosen?
It used to make me angry. Then I realized that there’s something better. There’s a reason why I’m still where I am. God is teaching me patience. I haven’t failed His test, but I’m learning how to accept where I am. It’s not a bad place at all. Actually, I’m incredibly blessed because I have a few jobs. They’re all different, but the variety keeps me on my toes.
I’m blessed and I’m learning patience. God will open a door for a job in His perfect timing. So I’ll wait for that and I know it’ll be great.
