So
since I publicly ranted about this situation, I need to publicly say that I had one person from our church (who's also a good friend) and someone from here give us grocery/gas/tire money yesterday. I feel bad that I was so negative but I'm thankful that God used others to bless us with provision.

So today I had a phone interview for a position that would be very different in some aspects and very similar in others to the job I have now.

The job would have more leadership responsibility (which I would like), more budgetary responsibility (I have so little so this could be a great opportunity to learn it) and (the best part) it's an inpatient clinic. I've worked at residential facilities since 2004 and if something happens at 3:00 AM, I have to deal with it (and oftentimes get in trouble for it...). With this, once I leave I'm done.

The second best part is the schedule. It's 8 to 5 Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, 8 to 8 Wednesday and to make up for it - 8 to noon on Friday.

It's a start up clinic - the company is based in Massachusetts and they're expanding to the St Louis market. I would be the first manager for this location and would be hired before they open to help hire staff.

I'm excited about the possibility. But I also want to do what God wants me to do.

As always, your prayers would be appreciated.

Okay so Wednesday of last week i had that phone interview. He told me it would be a week, maybe even two before i heard back from corporate about if they wanted to proceed or not. That was at 1 PM.

At 8:15 Friday, i heard from the corporate guy to schedule an interview for the 27th.
 They're planning to have someone in the position by April so they can be trained and open the location on July 1.

Please continue to pray for me that i know what to do when the time comes.

That is exciting!  It is cool to know that you are seriously being considered for a new position.

Well, things have become interesting. After scheduling the phone interview last Friday for the 27th, I've now had 2 phone interviews for another position I applied for. I should here by next week if I've moved to the next round - face to face interviews....

I appreciate your continued prayers about the job situation. It affects more than just where I go 5 days a week. We're also working on living on a budget and that affects it. One of these jobs I would also work a late night every week. That may affect my time with my family. I just want to do the right thing.

Still praying for you brother, hopefully having multiple companies interested will start a bidding war for you!

So if you look in the Random Ramblings, you'll see I have a Skype interview Monday with this clinic that I've had 2 phone interviews for. I would appreciate your additional prayer about this potential job because after the last phone interview, the job is not quite what I thought it was. I thought it was a managerial position for a multidisciplinary clinic and it's basically an office manager position for a group of physician's. Not bad work, but not what I'm after either...

Also, I've had some serious discussions with my wife about our budget and me going back to school and I need some direction in that area.

Sorry to be so needy but I appreciate that you guys care!

Just catching up after 2 weeks (?!?!) of not checking in.

How did the Skype interview go? Frankly, as much as you hate your current position and the difficulty you've had finding a new job, I'd move to anything that seemed reasonable. If nothing else it could broaden your skill set.

Thanks topshot. So I wasn't able to have the interview as the company wanted to use Skype for Business - which my company doesn't have. So we rescheduled for next week and I have a friend that will let me use her Skype for Business at her house.

I hear ya on moving to something else that's reasonable. I told my wife that at this point it can pay the same salary and I'd probably take it.

So the Skype interview is set up for Thursday. I have evertythign ready to go.

And since this seems to be where I ask for prayer, I have two requests.

First, we have a class at our church where new people can go to get an introduction. It runs 8 weeks and the trial run will be over the last week of February. I've been asked by our pastor to teach the March-April class. I said yes, and I'm not really nervous but I would appreciate some prayer that God guides and supports me through the class. The plans are that I'll teach every other 8 weeks on a rotation with another guy at church.

Second, I'm meeting with my pastor and his wife about something I feel like God told me to do a long time ago. Like a long, long time ago. Like when I was 17 and I'm 36 now. So it's scary because I've had this baggage for almost 20 years and I'm finally to the point where I don't want to be afraid anymore and I'm just going to put it out there and see what happens. Just some prayer that whatever the outcome, I remain obedient to God and that he shows me the next step.

So we met with our pastor and his wife and things went well. I won't reveal it here yet, but he and I are going to meet for some coaching to see how I can do more within the church.

Also, the interview went well. The director of expansion had told me to plan on 45 minutes to an hour and 12 minutes into the conversation I'm telling her what I do and explaining my job when she interrupts and says "Josh, do you have any public speaking experience?" I told her I've preached at church a handful of times and I lead our weekly devotion with the worship team. She said "Okay, I think we're done. I'm passing you to the next level of interviews."

Yes, it does!  If these things are where Jesus wants you, I hope they come for you!
