There are moments in your life when God reminds you that what is occuring is not always necessarily about you. You are simply to obey His leading and to leave the results to Him.
Such is the case with a job application I submitted last month for a community college teaching position.
I felt sure that God had placed this opportunity in my path and I needed to apply for it. As part of the application process, wherein you seek out references, I reconnected with my previous boss. As we spoke, she brought me up to date on the status of my former co-workers.
In the conversation, I found out a former friend and co-worker had been diagnosed with a lung disease and placed on the transplant waiting list. Upon hearing this bit of shocking news, I informed my boss that my sister, Marla, having undergone her own double lung transplant last year, would be a great resource.
Through only God (and the miracle of email), during the past month, Marla and my former co-worker began communicating and forming a friendship in which Marla began mentoring her through the waiting process for a lung transplant.
Then last Tuesday, my friend received the call for her transplant and her new lungs. (It was on the same day I found out I did not get the job.) Marla supported her family during surgery and will continue to do so during recovery too.
