Step by Step

God is faithful.  When we are willing to listen to Him and follow his lead, he’ll do just that – lead us.  Lead us exactly where He intends for us to go.  Here’s a story for you:

There is a new Cabela’s store set to open up here soon.  I decided I may as well apply, although I wasn’t too interested in working retail.  Constantly changing schedules, working on holidays and grumpy people….no thanks.  I scheduled an interview as I finished up the online application, and put the date in my calendar.  Woohoo.

As the interview date drew nearer, I came this close to canceling it.  Why on earth should I interview for a job I didn’t even want?  But Ron encouraged me to go – it would be good practice.  Even the day before the interview, I just didn’t want to do it….but there was this still small voice inside that said “just go”.  So I went.

During the interview, I mentioned that I have an Education degree, but that I wasn’t stuck on the notion of teaching in the traditional classroom – and don’t large corporations like this have teaching positions?  Why yes, yes they do.

To make a long story short(er), two days after my initial interview, my phone rang.  It was the store manager of our soon-to-be Cabela’s.  They wanted me to come in for another interview.  Cue pounding heart!

The second interview went very well – and just over a week later, I got a call – I had been selected for the position of “Systems Trainer”!  Benefits.  Vacation.  401k.  Year-round employment.  A reliable winter income.

Laying in bed that night, my mind was racing with so many questions.  Where will they send me for my 2-week training?  Where will I stay?  Will I be able to do laundry?  Will Ron survive??!  So many questions.  And then, a whisper in my heart – And step by step You’ll lead me, and I will follow you all of my days.

Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, ‘This is the way; walk in it.'”

Isaiah 30:21

Step by Step

Step by step.  All of the questions?  He’ll lead.  He already showed that He is capable by leading me to this job!

Trust Him to lead you.
