So, God Owes Me a Baby

I got the call. But not the result I wanted. I didn’t pass my interviews and have been continued. And I have to go through this whole friggin’ process again. I’m dreading the paper writing and the anxiety and all that stuff that comes with the territory.

But maybe the third time will be a charm, and I’ll never have to go through this again.

I’m trying to figure out what God is trying to teach me. And I’m sure I’ll mature and grow as the time goes on.

There are things that BOOM wants me to work on.
Although, someone on the board was apparently a certified psychologist and really thought that I needed to see a shrink to see if I have ADHD.
That’s one recommendation I’m not willing to look in to, though, to be completely honest with you. In fact, I feel that I should be a tad bit offended. But I’m not. I found it a bit funny. My last facebook status read: “After much thinking, I don’t think I have ADHD. But I could total- whoa! COOKIES!”

I don’t think I suffer from ADHD. I’m going to chalk up their reasoning to my nervousness, and how I tend to speak real, real fast when I’m anxious.

Anyway. There were two big prayer requests I’ve had for a while: my ordination and a baby.
I now have a lot more time to focus on (which I do well, contrary to popular belief) praying for a baby.
And, I know God doesn’t work this way, but, help a brother out. You said no to one thing for this year, it’ll be really mean if you say no to both.


Anyway, I’m good. Disappointed, of course. Perplexed, even. I told my dad that if I didn’t pass this year, I was going to take a year off from all this paper writing.
But I’m not. I’m going to tackle this again. And take in all the things the BOOM has said, the good, the bad, the absurd.

And we’ll see how I do next year.

In the mean time, God owes me a baby. Β πŸ™‚

  1. Sorry you got “Continued” don’t be discouraged. But to be honest how many people you know around your age are in the UMC system? The biggest question is not that you are ordained or not it is what you gonna name your baby πŸ™‚
