Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in awhile, you could miss it.
— “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off “
God stories are the lifeblood of any ministry and the Crossroads Career ministry is no different.
God stories are not to be missed and are crucial for life. They provide encouragement, hope, purpose and inspiration. These are needed for job seekers, employers and leaders.
As a job seeker, searching for the right job, career and God’s calling can be a long and winding road.
For the employer, it isn’t a cakewalk finding the right person for the right seat on your company bus.
As a volunteer in ministry, God stories help us remember why we are serving and can propel sacrificial involvement for another day, week or even year.
Yes, God stories are indisputably vital to growth in all things. After all, it is God who made all things and causes all things to grow, especially our jobs, careers and calling!
So this week and in weeks to come, we want to spotlight, highlight and celebrate the work that God is doing through God stories. So, stop and look around and notice the miracles God is performing. Your breakthrough is coming too!
Here’s a great one about being prayerful in your job search…
Thank you for starting the Ministry!!!! It is much needed, and I have had great results from your efforts.
I first came to GFC because a friend of mine told me that I would be attending a network event. At the time I thought it would be a one-night shot. Well I won the door prize! It was a book called Intentional Living by John C Maxwell. I took it as a sign to attend the ministry program because I had been stuck with my job.
I loved the “[1-800-Dear-God]” page in the Crossroads Career workbook as it was a place to turn to when I needed extra words of wisdom. My group was amazing. I learned to pray before important situations. I would pray that the meeting result would be beneficial and good for both the people I was meeting and me. It took me a while to find a job but when I started praying that the results would be good for me and others I would be working with the offer came.
