An Answered Prayer

I am not the type of person who likes to spend my days sitting around doing nothing, I like to be active and I like to work. Getting a job has seemed like an impossible task. The unemployment rate here is high  and Eugene is a college town. In addition to those factors I don't know anyone here and don't know which companies are reputable. I have been fervently praying that the Lord might lead me to where I need to be.

The day after we went to the temple I received a phone call from a friend. She was calling to let me know that she was forwarding my resume onto a company who was looking for someone with my skill set. The next day my friend called and said the company wanted to come in for an interview later that day. I went in and interviewed a few hours later. Less than an hour after the interview ended I received a phone call to inform me that I got the job and was asked to start the next day. It was crazy how fast everything happened. I really believe that the Lord answered my prayers and led me to this job.

Some days work is hard and I feel like giving up. It is during these times that I remind myself that the Lord answered my prayers and I am where I am supposed to be.
