I anticipate October as it only means November and December are just around the corner. I am happy that it’s October but then I just realized that DH only has 30 more days of employment and by November 1, he will be officially jobless. Their organization will be closing after two decades of operations. Their furniture and fixtures, vehicles, computers and some electronics will be given to their partner agencies, LGUs and other organizations by next month.
He already sent applications to several organizations and he’s still waiting for a positive response. However, two organizations already expressed their willingness to hire him. Even if he did NOT send applications to them. The first one is one of their partners in his current organization while the other one is a department of his former organization. This is no surprise because modesty aside, my husband is one conscientious, hardworking and intelligent worker. Aside from that, he is a good and trustworthy friend to his colleagues. They know that they can always count on him.
He is still weighing his options. And we both believe that God has greater plans for our family. He is aware that I do not want him to compromise his safety. This is a big issue in the nature of his chosen career. So we pray and pray while he is doing his best in the last tasks that need to be accomplished and sending applications to prospective employers. He was officially unemployed for two months last year but a government agency, a partner in his previous organization, availed of his service and compensated him. We never went hungry nor penniless.
He has been leading DH to the right job, the right path. And he is becoming better in every organization that he joins. He is not only contributing to the organizations that he works for. He learns from his managers and colleagues, even from their partner organizations.
Once upon a time, we prayed and prayed that he would be employed in a government bank so he can transfer here and be with us. It was not granted. We were devastated but continued to pray and trust God’s wisdom. We never thought that DH will be led into this kind of job, demanding yet rewarding and fulfilling.
Indeed, God works in mysterious ways. And He knows what is best. So we keep on trusting and praying and trusting Him some more. Because again, HE KNOWS WHAT IS BEST.
