Bob has landed but learned a lot on the journey

I have landed last week. The position is lower than my goal. The salary is lower too. However, it is a good start. The details are below. I would appreciate if you could read the entire message to the group.

I am not able to come to the CSN-IT focus group and bring it donuts. Can you by 2 dozen donuts from Dunkin Donuts? I will have to pay you for them. Let me know how I can send it to you.

I may or may not able to come on Thursday. I will try to see if I can get to work a little bit later on Thursday. You may have to buy 2 dozen donuts for that as well.

Thank you very much for all of your help.

Hello everyone, my name is Bob Mottahed. I landed with FirstCash Financial Servicesas an IT Process Analyst. My start date was December 26th. I found this job through Indeed. I applied on December 13th, interviewed on Friday December 22nd and received an offer two hours later. I used 30,60,90 days proposal to my current employer. They were impressed. I’ve been looking for about 9 months.

First, I thank God and Baha'u'llah (the Glory of God).  I love Christ. Christ was a divine Center of unity and love. The spirit of His Love is emanating from all of you.

I read many prayers but one special prayer penetrated me.

O thou who art turning thy face towards God! Close thine eyes to all things else, and open them to the realm of the All-Glorious. Ask whatsoever thou wishest of Him alone; seek whatsoever thou seekest from Him alone. With a look He granteth a hundred thousand hopes, with a glance He healeth a hundred thousand incurable ills, with a nod He layeth balm on every wound, with a glimpse He freeth the hearts from the shackles of grief. He doeth as He doeth, and what recourse have we? He carrieth out His Will, He ordaineth what He pleaseth. Then better for thee to bow down thy head in submission, and put thy trust in the All Merciful  Lord.          

Both Southlake Focus Group & Career Solutions Workshops provided the environment that enabled me to receive that wisdom.

I want to thank the SFG leadership team, particularly Jude Wardle and Norm Fulmer and volunteers and all who participate!

Also, I want to encourage each one to continue to apply everything that you are learning from SFG.  It’s just a matter of time before God answers your prayers with the job that He has already set aside for you.   Thank you and let’s stay connected.
