Talking to God...Becoming Completely Honest

WOW!! Ok I've been looking for a job for like... a month, and I couldn't think of anywhere to work that I would enjoy... so what better place than church and what better job than a custodian. I decided I would do this if it was what God wanted for me. Keith Walters is moving to Cali. which opens up a job, so I asked... yesterday (I know I procrastinated just a little). The guy said 'I don't know, there is already someone that is supposed to come in but we haven't heard from him yet, leave your name and number and we'll call you.' So I leave with a good attitude and just started praying, 'God, I don't know if this is what you want me to do during college but I need a job and you are the only one that can get me one since I don't even know where to start and I know you will provide in some way...' So today as I'm leaving church a different custodian comes up to me and says 'Are you Nick?' 'Why yes I am' he said 'Be expecting a call soon because tomorrow is this guys last day to show up, if he doesn't we need someone hired ASAP' Can you say all-powerful? I had no clue that was the situation and once again prayer proves to be the solution to all problems.

I painted Sunday school rooms all summer a couple of years ago...oddly, it was one of the most enjoyable experiences I have ever had.

God can be glorified by your attitude as you scrub those toliets and sweep those halls.

I hear it is a fun job, you get to see the pastors and clean their toilets :) Oh and if you want a quiet time; cleaning 60+ toilets will certainly provide you with a lot of quiet time to ponder the Scriptures.
