Just For You! (SOL 13)

I remember when I was in my late twenties and starting to get very depressed.  I was at that age where you start to wonder if you'll ever get married.  I think this is a girl thing because I've known other women who have felt the same way.  Yet, when it comes to boys, I don't think they feel the same pressure.  I was praying and complaining to God about how I would ever meet someone.  After all, I worked in a company that was predominantly run by females.  Males in this company were few and far between.  (I was a Director at a vocational school before I started teaching.)  I wasn't a party girl who frequented clubs on the weekends.  I wasn't in school or taking classes at the time so that was not an option in terms of somewhere I might have met someone.  I did attend church regularly, but, my church is a huge church with over 2,000 members at the time.  Meeting someone at church simply wasn't a possibility.

One evening, I was interviewing candidates for a teaching position that was available at the school.  I was notified that interviewee was waiting in the lobby and completing his application.  I decided to leave my office to pick up some materials before the interview began.  To my surprise, the person waiting was a very attractive man around my age.  Instantly, I became nervous.  I hurried back to my office to catch my breath.  How could I interview this person and maintain my composure?  I took a deep breath, and went back to the lobby to escort the candidate back to my office for the interview.  The interview went well, and I got through it without a problem.  I think I was more nervous than he was but I don't think he noticed.

That evening as I drove home.  The lord spoke to my spirit.  This is what I heard him say.  I CAN SEND ANYONE, FROM ANYWHERE, JUST FOR YOU.

That was all I needed to hear.  God had not forgotten about me.  He was working on my behalf.  All I had to do was be patient and rest in the knowledge that he really does answer prayers.

If you would like to read the story about how I met my husband, you can read it here.  By the way, it wasn't the guy I interviewed.  I did hire him to teach a class at the school though.  He was qualified and he turned out to be a really good teacher.  That fact that he was nice-looking was just a perk.
