Career path

I am at that point in my life where i don’t know which career path to choose. I finish my psychology degree in two months and i don’t know if its what i really want to do. I been applying for jobs in this field but nothing has come through for me yet. So i decided to expand my options and started applying for front office jobs. Recently i applied for a receptionist position within a hotel, and had two interviews which went very well and i was so confident that i as going to get the job. To my surprise, they called and offered me a part time position as a food and beverage attendant, even though i was very disappointed i accepted the position. I was disappointed at God, during my four years of uni i worked in restaurants and cafes so i thought it was time to move to the next level which is front office. I have got more chances of getting into psychology through working as a receptionist than food and beverage attendant-its completely unrelated to psychology. I kept asking God why? Then later i realized that i want certain jobs which i am not getting instead i am getting the ones i don’t want to do within the hospitality industry. Then i remembered the verse in Jeremiah “For i know the plans i have for you”, declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”. I feel as if God has a different career path for me within the hospitality industry and i been saying NO. So now I have decided to accept this position with love and joy and see where God takes me for He knows the plans he has for me and I keep in mind that this job is only a stepping stone to what God has called me to do. I am still learning to trust him, which we all know is not easy-sometimes i think i know whats best for me but clearly i don’t, im leaving it up to Him who created me to do his will. I would really appreciate your thoughts, suggestions and feedback and please pray for me…Thank you

    Hi Yeukai,

    I believe that God will provide us with whatever it is that we need.
    I’ve just recently applied for a new job position which at first was rejected from.
    I followed up on it and showed them how keen I was on working for their company – it turns out that in the end they offered me a completely different position but still within the same area as the first one I applied for. God obviously didn’t have the first job in my path but offered me something better. We have to take what’s given to us and have faith that it is God’s doing.
    If we walk in Faith, we will not be let down 🙂

    I will pray that God provides you with what you need.
