I remember one of the "bumps" in my life. Here's what I did and how it turned out:
When my last year of college arrived I was faced with the challenge of finding a teaching job. I was offered a job at Woodward School for Girls in Quincy, MA where I had done my practice student teaching, which I did not accept, due to low salary.
I then took a bus to a town near the college for an interview, but did not get the job. When no other job opened up, I decided to stay on at the bakery where I had worked during much of my college days.
In the meantime Grandpa and I were married and later moved to Mansfield, MA where Grandpa served as Director of Christian Education at a prominent Congregational church in town. In January I was hired as a 5th grade teacher at Park Row School which proved to be a valuable experience. Our work with the kids at the church and my experience teaching brought us into contact with many people in that small town and were were a real part of the community.
Here is what I would say to help you be strong:
Keep in mind what God's Word says:
"Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on Thee."
