It is amazing how a relatively obscure verse in the Bible can mean nothing one day, and then say something so specific and clear to you the next.
Such was the case with these two verses below from Acts:
Then coming to the borders of Mysia, they headed north for the province of Bithynia, but again the Spirit of Jesus did not allow them to go there. So instead, they went on through Mysia to the seaport of Troas. Acts 16:7-8
The message to me was this…the Holy Spirit guides us to the right places, but he also guides us away from the wrong places!
How many times do you think you have been guided away from the “wrong place” at work at not even known it?
Or, if you are between jobs, is it possible that the job you so badly wanted that did not come through was actually the Holy Spirit guiding you away from the wrong place?
Father, I have been praying for you to show me your will. For you to show me what TO do. Father, will you now please just as importantly guide me AWAY from the wrong things? Amen…

What an incredible day it was last Wednesday, February 5th at the Joseph Project 2010 Advance Workshop! There was great anticipation during the weeks leading up to this kickoff event. Seems like what you hear is how the economy is recovering. That may be true in some some quarters, but there are many others who are still trying to recover from the loss of their job. Another 300 people in fact were released from Wal-Mart the day of our event.
The room was packed with close to 100 people participating in the event. Lots of people came who had never been to a Joseph Project meeting before who hopefully have now found a welcoming environment that will provide helpful job search skills, networking opportunities, as well as hope and encouragement.
The program was very powerful. So much content was packed into these few hours that my head was about to explode by the end of all the sessions. It was clear that the presenters came fully loaded with their best stuff in an all out effort to help in any way they could. It is such an encouragement to see the heart of these people who only want to help and are willing to give so much. Thank you to all the speakers and panelists who went all out to make our sessions rich with practical comments and real world advice.
Friends, we are really counting on you to help us get the word out about the Joseph Project. No doubt you know someone who would benefit from attending. Please invite them and if at all possible, tell them you will come with them. YOU are the most powerful marketing tool we possess. Tell your church, community groups and any other organizations you are involved with about this opportunity to help so many that are traveling this difficult path of job loss. Please help us to get the word out that this is not a path you have to travel alone. Do it today!
