Looking for a job is hard work. Like really hard – mentally keeping track of every lead; spiritually finding new reserves of faith as each day passes; physically resisting the urge to over-work and focus on staying rested – it’s just a lot…and frankly more than I expected.
There’s also something about not knowing where the path leads. Each step requires more focus; more awareness and before you know it, the fog threatens to envelope you completely.
Which is why you must have adopt the buddy system…a relational rope around your waist. I consider myself quite lucky to have a wonderful wife and a venerable army of friends who are making sure my path is lit. I have never felt so supported and loved and have been reminded that the unknown is not a journey to be taken alone.
So, if you’re reading this and have held the rope at one point over the past two weeks, thank you, thank you, thank you.
