In Your Hands

 

I had my second interview to the position that I applied to at a local university. I believe I did well, because the panel seemed to like what I presented and how I presented it. However, one can’t be too sure about these things, especially since I also have the tendency of revisiting things mentally and wishing that I had done better, or that I had done things differently. It’s all in God’s hands now. The butterflies that had been in my stomach all day are still there – I will have to wait until the end of the week to hear about the decision whether I’m in or not. Admittedly, I’m a bit anxious, as Christmas is drawing near – the next window of opportunity will only happen after February and that is still around three months to go.

My second sister also sent me a text message, asking me how the interview went. She then sent another message that said that she wasn’t worried about me because I was in safe hands. That reminds me of one of my favourite gospel songs, one of Hillsongs’ old songs from 1997, In Your Hands.

In Your Hands

I’m so secure, You’re here with me
You stay the same, Your love remains
Here in my heart

So close, I believe
You’re holding me now
In Your hands I belong,
You’ll never let me go
So close, I believe
You’re holding me now
In Your hands I belong,
You’ll never let me go

You gave Your life, in Your endless love
You set me free, and show the way
Now I am found

Bridge:
All along You were beside me,
Even when I couldn’t tell
Through the years, You showed me more of you
More of you

He is holding me now, and I know that I shouldn’t be afraid or anxious because I am in good hands.

God is also a God of good cheer – when I finished my interview earlier, I got a text message from a friend from church, Darius, who said that he had left a box of doughnuts in my porch. He works at a local doughnut shop in the city – Gourmet Glaze – my favourite, since there’s no Krispy Kreme shop in Adelaide. Thank you, Darius! That helped a lot to cheer me up!

On a more domestic front, I returned home to find the materials needed for the pergola on the driveway, ready for tomorrow’s construction. All’s happening in my household! 🙂 I have also moved some of the stuff from the work area to the back of the house, so that the carpenters have all the space that they need. I’m nearly all set for the barbeque at the end of the month, to inaugurate the pergola, to start the Christmas cheer, and perhaps … a celebration for a new job?
