The GeoChristian

The Earth. Christianity. They go together.

Perseverance

As you know, this is a difficult time to find a job.

I just sent off application #212. I spent a good portion of the day writing essays on four federal job applications that were due by midnight Eastern time; I sent the last one off at 11:58. I’ve been very well qualified for most of the 212 jobs I’ve applied for. I suppose there are a few that I’m not fully qualified for, and a few that I’m overqualified for.

When I picked up my daughter from school a few days ago, she asked me, “Did you find a job?” My answer was, “I’ve found lots of jobs; they just haven’t found me yet.” There are still companies and agencies hiring, and I’m praying that some day soon one of them will find me.

Remember to reach out to those in your church and community who are without jobs. I am still filled with hope. Some others are having a very difficult time.

Though the fig tree should not blossom,
nor fruit be on the vines,
the produce of the olive fail
and the fields yield no food,
the flock be cut off from the fold
and there be no herd in the stalls,
yet I will rejoice in the Lord;
I will take joy in the God of my salvation.
–Habakkuk 3:17-18 (ESV)

Grace and Peace

  1. I suppose people have lots of advice and few leads, but check the registry at https://www.cccregistry.org/jobs/searchForm.aspx for teaching jobs at community colleges in California. Not much there now, but openings often come in the early spring, and after our legislature cleans up the budget mess.

    Good luck and best wishes,
