Wait

I have this weird thing with dreams, like I have very realistic dreams (like I can feel myself hugging/kissing/touching/holding hands ect) every now and then and my theory is (it may be stupid) that to have a realistic dream the main person it involves (all have been based around someone who I know) must have it too. I believe that God tells us things from dreams and the other night I had a very realistic dream and I woke with the word 'wait' on my mind and I knew that God was telling me to wait and eventually I will meet a guy at the perfect timing and to be honest the timing isn't right at the moment and won't be right until I find a job and settle in to it and my Grandma is settled into high care. So I will wait and honestly knowing God has it all under control makes me worry less even though at times all I do is worry!

Stay calm and trust God

This week started off good in the Job front I had an interview on Monday with a recruitment company on behalf of a law firm which went very well so well that I got an interview with the company on Tuesday but I didn't get the job. I felt so down and yes I cried, as just when I thought I was getting somewhere I was back to square one. I then today had another interview with the same recruitment company but with a different consultant about a different job and honestly the jobs to far away for my liking but its interview experience. I felt really down today and the consultant picked up on that immeadiatly and told me that though I didn't get the job they had no complaints and only positive feedback from the firm about how my interview went and the main reason why I didn't get the job was because I don't have a drivers license (I am working on it though!) but I have potiental, I am well presented, I am a good communicator, my skills are up to date and the firm had interviewed heaps of people. Honestly I just have to focus on the fact that God has a great job ready for me and not to get discouraged. Once again I am reminded of the fact I have to trust god.

Waiting for God to Provide

My life at the moment is far from where I want it to be. Most days I just wish I could bang my head on the keyboard (or another hard surfice) and forget how hectic my life is. I still haven't found a job and each knockback just makes me more discouraged I just know when school goes back next week I will go stir crazy! My Grandma is still in the hospital and hates there but its the right place for her to be I aim to go with Mum when she visits as the visits are the highlights of her day (sad but true) and I know Mum likes having the support from me.

Its hard at the moment as I honestly have no idea what to do or what I should be doing. I do have a few things to do that I keep putting off but its mostly boring things which can be done anytime and face it when I am going stir crazy they are sure to look interesting!

But heres the thing maybe where I am is where God wants me to be? Maybe he is just putting the finishing touches on the perfect job for me? Maybe I am out of work to help Mum with Grandma? I honestly just need to trust God during this time and I KNOW with his help I will get through this hard time because I have seen God ALWAYS PROVIDES.

Book review: Revive by Cat Patrick

I haven't done a book review lately so I thought I would :) I ordered this book online as it was $12 cheaper if I waited a month for it to be released in paperback even though it was always out in every bookstore here for around $20-22.

I first came across Cat Patrick when I was doing work experience and during my lunch break I was window shopping (there was a big shopping centre 2 mins walk away) and picked up her book Forgotten I loved it, it was so different to what I had read before so when Revived I didn't hesitate to order it.

I read revived in a night and honestly loved every moment, it has twists, romance, suspense, death, and will make you smile and cry. It is my new favourite book and for the night I read it, it gave me a much needed distraction from what was going on around me.

Revived by Cat Patrick

Revived is based around a drug (call Revived) that can make you come back to life after you have died. Daisy is a teenager who has died 5 times each time coming back to life but after each time she dies she has to be relocated with her two carers Mason and Cassie (who act as her parents but are really agents who are trying to refine the drug) so no one knows that there is such a drug. After Daisy dies for the 5th time she relocates to a new town with a new last time and then for the first time she makes a friend, Audry and begins to develop relationships with those around her. Just when you think you know where the book is going, twists begin to happen and you have no idea what will happen next.

I would say this book is better than Forgotten and I honestly didn't think it could be possible. I love how it is a stand alone book and it answers all the questions you may have and gives you proper closure. You fall in love with all the charcters and you honestly don't want the book to end. This book like Forgotten will get reread many times.

If you want an unpredictable, not dystopian (though it may sound like it), feel good book read Revived you won't regret it!

*** I am not getting sponsered for this review and I am pretty sure Cat Patrick doesn't know I exist, this revive is my own as I love this book and want everyone to know about it ***

Job Search

I managed to put off actually searching for a job for as long as possible I wanted a break and then when I felt I should be starting I had just found out that in order to continue receiving my payment from the government I needed to visit an employment agency so that postponed things. So yesterday morning (and night) I began looking, I applied to around 20-25 and have so far had two knock backs (one was because I don't have my license the other I have no idea why) and if I don't hear from the rest by next friday (they all said they would call if they were interested in me) I won't have made it to the interview stage. I honestly no point in worrying as I know God has the perfect job out there for me, I also have my next meeting with my employment agency on the 30th so if I still don't have a job they will help me find one. Honestly its all in Gods hands now and all I can do is pray.

I have also realised that this is my 200th post and I am aware that I haven't been posting that often but will try and do it more now that I am looking for work. Our house has been hectic as my Grandma is still hospital so I have ended up cooking dinner for the past 5 nights as Mum has been too caught up with Grandma and everything.
