After an incredibly busy past 5 days or so (which included things like prepping for school stuff, making firework hats, and Elijah flooding our kitchen while Eric and I were "talking" in the bedroom), I finally sat down to think without any kids around or anything. On the toilet. People think grand thoughts while sitting on the toilet. Maybe that is why men take forever in there...

I was thinking about my phone interview that I have for this morning. My friend, Jodi, took Asher this morning (and I took the morning off of work) so I could have some quiet to prepare. 

What questions will they ask? What are my weaknesses? What literary techniques will I bring to their school? And on, and on. 

Then a thought popped into my head. 

"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.  You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:11-13 

Thanks God. I needed that. 

In faith, we have signed Asher up for full day childcare starting in the fall. In faith, we have prayed that God would lead us to the right job for me. But maybe God wanted to reassure and remind me of that second half of the verse. The end say “seek me with all your heart…” .

So as I do some more research for great answers to “What are your weaknesses?”, I am reminded to do a little more research in the Bible and prayer part.

Thank God. I needed that.
