Another story of God's provision

A few days ago I shared about God's provision to us with a new to us truck. I wanted to share part 2 of his recent blessings.

Matt has worked at The Home Depot for over 5 years. He worked there throughout college and when we got married, it was where we both felt like God wanted him. We can't really explain why because it isn't an extremely high paying job BUT we just knew it was so.

When we moved here, God had opened a door for Matt to continue with HD here but as a part-time employee whereas, he had been full-time since college. It wasn't ideal but it was there and again, it was the open door. We have been able to manage extremely well with the part-time position and it has allowed Matt to get his photography business going to an extent. However, we began discussing that he really needed something full time.

Matt's decision was to approach the managers at HD regarding full time and if they didn't have it available, he would begin looking elsewhere.

On Wednesday, he went into HD to speak with his department head and she said "I'd love to have you full time especially since Max (another co-worker) is transferring. Go talk to the manager". Matt then goes and talks to the manager who says "We would love to have you full time. Go check with the assistant manager to confirm with her." Matt then goes to the assistant manager who says "Perfect. That solves my problem (finding another employee to fill Max's spot)".

Keep in mind that this entire event transpired within 5 minutes. Matt and I couldn't help but have tears in our eyes just knowing that God had provided for us, yet again. We are grateful!

Side note: Matt and I are also grateful that we are not defined by what we do. Our jobs are enjoyable to us and we are grateful for them BUT they do not define us.

Til then-
Did YOU Hear about the Morgans?

P.S. Stay tuned for part 3 of God's provision.
