My God Answers Prayers
It's May. The start of summer. I'm freshly out of college. Now off to the "real world" in search of my ideal job as an elementary school teacher. My only job at the moment: get a job! Not only that, but I'm hundreds of miles away from my friends, my community -- my extended family; praying that God would send me some like-minded individuals to befriend and grow with. After bouts of loneliness, filling out application after application, turning in resumes, making phone calls, NOTHING was happening. Not only was I not seeing any fruits of my labor, but I had to deal with EVERYONE inquiring about my "next move". Finding joy in the midst of seemed almost impossible. But I digress. Now, fast forward to the end of July.
