Broken {Five Minute Friday}

It’s Five Minute Friday! I am linking up again with our awesome host, Lisa-Jo. She gives us one word each week and asks us just to write for five minutes. Our word for this week…

BROKEN

The perfect word for me this week. I felt broken yesterday. I found out that I didn’t get the job I had interviewed for…actually had two interviews for.

A local private school contacted me about a technology position for this coming school year. It sounded like a good fit for me and I thought it would be a great school for my kids. I really thought I would be offered the job after the second interview. You can imagine how it felt when they contacted me yesterday and said that even though I was very qualified they had chosen another candidate. I felt like I had been punched in the stomach.

I have to admit that I did cry a little bit yesterday and had myself a pity party, but today is another day. God has blessed me with a good job. It doesn’t pay as well as I would like but you know what…my God always provides.

I didn’t realize until last night that this was the first time in 18 years that I had not been offered a job that I interviewed for. Wow! That made me stop and really think.

There is a reason I didn’t get that job…He must have better plans for me. So today I don’t feel broken…I feel blessed!

How about you? Have you gone through times where things didn’t work out as you had planned? Can you look back now and see why?

Blessings to You,
Melissa
