Pray for her, pray that God works with her in all aspects of life. Like some have already stated, God must have prompted you to tell her about the position. Ask God what else would he have you to do. Remember,God works in his time and in his way. Not ours!

Nothing! In the future, "Turn on your brain before putting mouth in gear". Try and think of any repercussions from your speaking.

Love endures long and is patient and kind, love is never envious or boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily, is not rude {unmannerly} and does not act unbecomingly.It does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self seeking,it is not touchy, fretful, or resentful, it rejoices when right and truth prevail. Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person.We all need this one.

She looks upon me as a mother figure,perhaps. She would take up a lot of my time,if I let her.I try to encourage her and listen to her.She has told me she does not get this from her own mother, who is about my age. She does not listen well and is very pushy. This irritates and bothers me. She is clearly not interested in me and my concerns either-- only HERS!

God is trusting you with her. You can share with her about the things of God > giving *her* your testimony could mean more to God . . . loving one person personally . . . than speaking your testimony to a large congregation. Obedience of love (o: Jesus was pleased to give His attention to that one criminal next to Him, who wanted Jesus to remember Him (o: Oh, you are blessed, God is *trusting* you (o:

Aloha friends,At this point I don't feel that the issue to deal with is the irritating person applying for the job opening but the issue is that you are irritated about your "friend" applying for the job. Be real if you are that persons friend talk to that person and deal with the real issue what makes that person an irritating friend? Sometimes people don't realize that theres an area that needs change, that's why we should communicate.
In the love of JESUS,

Robyn...Sounds like you're her hero.
---KarenD on 5/5/08

Sounds like this could be a good test for you to show patience and kindness to someone to whom it may be difficult. If she gets hired on then trust God that he will not let you get into too much to handle.

RitaH and KarenD: Thanks for your on-time words of wisdom. I do tend to do things impulsively,sometimes. I should have kept my mouth shut.This young lady has a job but is looking for a part timer. She and I worked together before and I was miserable on the job. I did not say she was a pest to everybody.She smothered me and followed me around on the job,when she could.Even to the powder room.

Welcome her aboard and show her the ropes.
You'll be blessed. God must have prompted you to ask her to apply.

Why do you regret telling your friend about a job opening? Unless your worried that she will do a better job than you? Are you jealous? Be thankful that your friend is searching for a job and is willing to work. I think it is great that people who are able to work "want" to work. There are alot of people who are able to work but instead they take advantage of financial assistance from the government. Why can't you just be happy for her?

Pray they do not put her in the position. If they do, it is Gods will and you will learn patience from it:) You may also learn to love her the way God would:)
---jody on 5/3/08

Ask God to help you deal with the outcome in a way that will help both you and your friend and glorify God. Learn from this that you should not do things without giving them much thought first. Impulsive words and actions often backfire on us.
---RitaH on 5/3/08

Pray for her to get the job. It's what she needs, and obviously you need work developing more's a win/win situation.

But that's thinking spiritually and you may not choose that.

The alternative is open to your imagination. what weapon will you use against your 'friend's' prosperity???
Deception, slander, you could pull off an expert assassination and stump even the CSI's...but remember God knows even your thoughts.
---pharisee on 5/2/08

You can stop talking so much. Why would you remain friends with someone who is so irritating that you wouldn't want them to work where you work? If she is irritating to everybody she probably won't get the job anyway.
---KarenD on 5/2/08

there is nothing you can do to stop her coming, or indeed being appointed.
What you can do is to look for the good things in her
