I was on a website recently that had a job board. I was curious, so I clicked on the job board. An opening immediately jumped out to me. "I could do this! I would LOVE this!" My heart picked up a beat and I didn't even flinch at the location of the job. I clicked the link.
Six words in I stopped reading. Six words in.
I understand their position. I don't agree with their position but I understand it to a point. I keep coming back to this. I did not ask to be equipped with the gifts and talents I've been equipped with. I did not ask for the opportunities I have been given. All of those things, God gave to me or called me to. I did not one day wake up and decide to thumb my nose at a few verses in the Bible that say "a woman must not..." because I thought it would be fun. I followed God. I am still following God.
So, to the church back east with a position open which caught my attention and started to fan the flame of excitement and possibility in my soul, well, I wish you well as you seek your man. This woman will keep her eyes open and keep following God's leading. Obviously, that wasn't one.
