pick me!

If you have ever tried out for something, applied for a job, quoted a project, asked someone on a date, and tightly closed your eyes and waited...... you are understanding how I am feeling right now.  Waiting for the answer is excruciatingly painful in the nerves for me.  My heart is beating so fast, my hands are sweaty, my shoulders are tight...... I. Can. Not. Relax.  
And what if you know........you just Know.......that the thing you tried out for, or asked to do is something you would be really good at.  You just know if they pick you it would be the best decision they ever made. They will be so happy they picked you.  
 
I feel like this today.  And I am waiting, as I am writing this I just received a phone call and found out my answer......
 
They didn't pick me. Besides feeling sad, I am a bit relieved for the answer so as not to be nervous.  I do know that ultimately God has a plan.  His plans are not my plans.  I am reminded of this verse.
 
1 Corinthians 15:57-58
But thanks be to God!  He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm.
Let nothing move you.
Always give yourself fully to the work of the Lord,
because you know that your labor
in the Lord is not in vain.
 
I am thankful for Jesus' encouragement and ultimately He is in control and knows what I need and what work He wants me to do.
