As you know, the job search process is a very trying time. We all have been there at one point or another, and if not, it will probably happen at some point.
I remember three times in my life I had 6 month-long job searches. I recently flipped through my journals I kept during those times and read the prayers that I cried out to God.
I prayed that God would fulfill the promise he made to me in Jeremiah 29:11:
“For I know the plans I have for you”, declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you, not to harm you, to give you a hope and a future.”
I clung to that promise and every time I slipped into darkness, God lifted me up. My prayer for you is that you “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and not to depend on your own understanding. Seek His will in all that you do and he will direct your path” (Proverbs 3:5-6).
Trust the Lord your God to pull you through this tough time. This may be a deep valley in your life, but He will get you through it and you will be on a mountain soon enough in His timing. God has a wonderful plan for your life, so commit right now to Let Go and Let God work in your life right now. His plan is a million times better than any plan we could have for ourselves.
Claim the promise in Jeremiah 29:11. This is the foundation behind Claim It, Career Search Coaching.
