The life and times of a firefighter with an amazing wife, two daughters, a very big God sovereign over all ... and no job yet.

These two images seem to illustrate well the current state of things in this process: striving hard towards the goal and the finish line in sight. Of course, there is still a ways to go! But as i prepare for my first ride alongs and look at the numbers, i'm definitely getting excited. Beyond that, God has been so faithful in supporting me and providing in amazing ways through events and contacts that are so obviously from Him, all i can do is be amazed and give Him the glory. I always said that He would place me exactly where He wanted me but now it seems - like Job - i am seeing with my eyes what before i only knew in hope.
Honestly, the progress even that's taken place gives me so much more hope, even if i don't end up getting hired with Surrey - i feel all the more confident that i am moving in the right direction. God grant me faith and patience till the end of this path, and then grace and strength as i begin down the next.
At the end of the day, this last pic illustrates perfectly what i now feel after months in the "dark" of uncertainty. Soli Deo gloria!
