Cheezburger

God is good, God is faithful.  Certainly more good and more faithful than I.



As I continued my job search, I found that as quickly as various job options were falling away (out of state, not the right fit, etc.), one option kept rising to the top.  About two weeks ago, I accepted a job offer for Chief Technical Officer at Cheezburger.

Cheezburger Network

Last week was my first week, and so far, it's going swimmingly.  I like the people I work with, they're very professional, likable, and committed to making Cheezburger a great business.

About a month ago, I was talking to a friend, who went through something similar.  While he was out of work, he said he obsessed over finding a new job.  Which is reasonable in the way of the world.

It wasn't until he let go of that obsession.  Let go of that "I" centric view, that "I" could MAKE something happen, that he found the perfect job.

For me, it happened in very much the same way.  It wasn't until I let go and surrendered to His will that this opportunity came along.

He is faithful.  He is Good. He answers prayer.  However, His timing is not our timing, and I learned a lot over these last few months, all for His good, and by extension, my good.
