JBLOGGER: Gibbons, Patti (MC1986) praying about a new opportunity



*** begin quote ***

My downloads folder contains some fascinating documents at the moment. The most fascinating is a job description that is tailor-made for me, quite literally a dream job. To do it would be challenging and worthwhile and really good for the kingdom of God. To do it would also require some seriously hard work up front; I’d need help… a lot of help. Then, however, that would yield an amazing opportunity to serve. It feels God-sized. It also feels like it would be a terrible thing to get wrong.

So, I’m dusting off the blog to ask for your help – wherever you are, wherever you see this – will you pray about this with me? If you have some encouragement, or some wisdom, or just a like/favorite/comment to share, I’d be grateful to know you’re here. I sincerely believe in the power of community seeking answers together.
