Waiting on that PERFECT job?

"Sow your seed in the morning,
and at evening let not your hands be idle,
for you do not know which will succeed,
whether this or that,
or whether both will do equally well."
Ecclesiastes 11:6

I talked to Michael Keough (our adopted son) this week. He's taking a job at Clarendon ISD as a computer IT coordinator. I think he'll be managing about 400 computers! He'll be great at it! But as he was telling me about the job, he said that God had given them 4 or 5 confirmations to accept this job. I asked him how God confirmed it for them. And one of the ways was through this verse. He made the statement that he was always waiting on the perfect job---perfect fit, great salary, something that included his calling as a minister. (I remember thinking the same thing so many times!) But through this verse, God showed them to just follow His lead---you never know which job will be successful. And it's not so much what we do, but whose we are.
In the process and through divine connections, there's now a possibility that Michael may get to fulfill another dream and be a part-time youth minister in Clarendon!
Isn't that just like God? Sow your seed....you never know which one will succeed.

Doesn't he look like a youth minister???

Praying the same things for ourselves. I don't even want to know how many opportunities we've turned down because they weren't "perfect." Just praying for our Redeemer to redeem us! We're excited for Key-Ho!
