Yes Isn’t Always the Best Answer

In my early working career, I liked my job in administration at a new hospital, but a big brand new company moved to town. They had an opening for a human resources director, and I interviewed. The vice president said his boss’s daughter applied, and it was between the two of us. In the meantime, other jobs came available, and I applied for those. The interviews were positive, and I was sure I would be hired for one of them.

I had prayed about this change, and I didn’t understand when I wasn’t chosen for any of them. Why had I been called back for second interviews and not one of them panned out? What was God trying to teach me?

A prominent doctor came to my office, and he told me his neighbor was the vice president who had interviewed me. He said the man wanted to hire me, but his boss made him hire his daughter. This doctor asked me not to leave. I was upset the doctor found out.

Then the chief operating officer told me he was the other neighbor to this vice president. He asked why I was leaving. He also wanted me to stay. I did stay, and the raises and opportunities were good. A year later, the big company I’d been to for interviews didn’t succeed, and a large number of employees were let go, including the vice president of human resources!

The lesson I learned was that the grass wasn’t greener on the other side, and I should appreciate the plans the Lord had for me right where I was working. He already knew this would happen. I thanked the Lord for taking care of me—and telling me no.

Are you struggling to understand why the Lord has told you no? We may not know right away why God says no to a request, but we can rest assured God has our best interest at heart.

Praying about the Small Things

The donut and webcam story…

by Molly Jebber

I accepted Jesus Christ into my heart at five years old. I learned early on that Jesus Christ may not say yes to everything we ask, but he cares about all our requests. And thank goodness, He doesn’t always say yes, because the Lord knows what’s best for me when I don’t.

I was a keynote speaker for the Southern California Christian Authors Conference recently. Due to the virus, the event was virtual. My webcam on my computer went out the day before the conference.

Wearing my mask, I went to six stores. All were sold out of webcams. Sales personnel said with everyone working at home, they couldn’t keep webcams in stock. I went to Walmart, which would be my last hope, thinking they’d be the first store people would go for everything. I sat in my car in the parking lot before going inside and prayed they’d have a webcam.

In the electronics department, a tall lanky man wearing his Walmart badge stood over the counter with a donut in his hand. “Want a bite of my donut?”

Laughing, I said, “No, but I would sure like a webcam.”

He threw his donut down, waved his arms, and told me to follow him to the camera area. I’d felt stressed at the other stores, but now I laughed and hurried behind him.

Lifting a small box, he said with a smile, “You’re getting the best webcam.”

It was easy to install and worked great. I thanked the Lord not only for providing the webcam but also for making me laugh.

From our biggest to smallest care, Jesus Christ wants to know about all of them. He knows the number of hairs on our head. He cares about every big and little thing in our lives. He’s our best friend, and He loves us.

Molly Jebber is a best-selling award-winning Amish Historical Romance author whose books have made the Publisher’s Weekly Best Ten List, media worldwide, and USA Today.

Welcome to the CAN blog. Davalynn Spencer here, visiting with author Molly Jebber about authorship and her featured book for today, Hannah’s Courage.

Molly, please give us a quick overview of your book.

Hannah’s Courage is the third book in my Amish Charm Bakery Series. Hannah Lapp fears she may have waited too long to tell Timothy Barkman she’s ready for courtship. Charlene Shetler intends to become Timothy’s fraa. But is the newcomer all that she seems? Hannah learns Charlene’s hiding something from Timothy he should know. Will Hannah run from this, or will she have the courage to tell Timothy the truth?

What do you hope readers will take away from this book?

That when your situation may seem impossible, God is powerful in all things. He can move mountains, and He cares about every little thing in our lives if we love and trust in Him. This story also shows no matter how big mistakes are, He’s a forgiving God.
