I started this blog after I was laid off from my job so that I could practice writing and get familiar with social media. And since then I’ve been patiently waiting. Waiting to find just the perfect fit. The job that was right for me. A company that was right for me and I for it. Okay, I lied before. I wasn’t being patient at all. I’ve had a few moments of contentment here and there but in general it has pretty much stunk.

I’ve been praying over and over and trying hard to wait on God. “Trying” being the key culprit. I’ve had amazing support from family and friends who encouraged and consoled me. And a few signs from Him here and there that things were going to work out just right.

I love when I see things around me that seem to be perfect timing for what’s going on in my life. For example, last weekend my pastor started a new series. Guess what it’s called. Waiting. Yup, finally he gives this sermon after months of stress. And the other week I went to the Army’s version of American Idol—Operation Rising Star—and this amazing singer belted out a tune that was so beautiful. It was a Faith Hill song and it’s titled, “There Will Come a Day.”

The video and the lyrics are below. The song title is ringing very true to me today because yesterday I accepted a job offer from an amazing company. I’m excited that I’ll be working with some talented and creative people in a really nice environment. The waiting is over. I’ve learned a lot on the unemployment line but am ready to get back to work. If you are waiting for something and running out of patience, take a deep breath and sing this tune. It may help.  

There Will Come a Day

It’s not easy trying to understand
How the world can be so cruel
Stealing the souls of man
Cloudy skies rain down over all your dreams
You wrestle with the fear and doubts
Sometimes it’s hard, but you gotta believe

(Chorus)
There’s a better place
Where our Father waits
And every tear He’ll wipe away
The darkness will be gone
The weak shall be strong
Hold on to your faith
There will come a day
There will come a day

Wars are raging
Lives are scattered
Innocence is lost
And hopes are shattered
The old are forgotten
The children are forsaken
In this world we’re living in
Is there anything sacred

(Chorus)
There’s a better place
Where our Father waits
And every tear He’ll wipe away
The darkness will be gone
The weak shall be strong
Hold on to your faith
There will come a day
There will come a day

The song will ring out
Down those golden streets
The voices of Earth and the angels will sing
(Hallelujah)
Every knee will bow
Sin will have no trace
In the glory of His amazing grace
Every knee will bow
Sin will have no trace
In the glory of His amazing grace

There will come a day
There will come a day
Oh, there will come a day
There will come a day
I know there’s coming a day, coming a day
