"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction so that we will be able to comfort those who are in any affliction with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God."
(2 Corinthians 1:3-4) (NASB)
OUR MISSION IS HELPING PEOPLE FIND THEIR WAY BACK TO GOD
In a recent phone conversation with Joel C. we were discussing job seeking. He related to me that from the time he got out of prison until he finally found a job he had put in over 710 applications. Out of those applications he only received approximately 50 call-backs. Out of those call-backs he got less than 20 interviews and only three third interviews. It was very discouraging in the beginning for him, denial after denial, rejection upon rejection. When he got to the point where he just wanted to give up, and there were a few of those, he cried out to God for encouragement. God’s answer was not what Joel expected. God told him that the denials and rejections were necessary, that he needed to get all the “no’s” out of the way so he could get to the “yes” God had waiting for him. Keep digging, keep pressing forward, and keep believing. All this was necessary to make Joel the person God wanted, and his future employer needed him to be. Joel’s success in his job today is due in part to what it took to get him there.
Are you experiencing rejection and discouragement? Are you doing what you know God wants you to do and not seeing any results yet? Take encouragement from Joel’s story and keep moving forward in faith. God knows where you are, what you need, and who He is making you into. You will arrive just when you are supposed to be there, and you’ll be ready for the task!
