I recently discovered that a little church about an hour away is in need of a piano player and children’s assistant leader. It sounds totally awesome, right?
I’m very apprehensive about it today. I met with the pastor of the church and I just don’t have a good feeling about it. About him.
Now, if you’re a guy, immediately you’re going to ask why he makes me feel uncomfortable. But I don’t really have a reason, not a legitimate reason. He just came across as very…I don’t even know. It just made me uncomfortable. And as a woman I feel like to neglect that sense in me is to ignore an alarm God put inside me.
He was very nice, and the job does sound really neat. A big challenge, but with God’s help it could be accomplished. The only problem is this guy I’d have to ride with twice a week. I just don’t think I’m comfortable with that. He said a lot of people here spoke highly of me, which surprised me since I don’t know many people, and he apparently looked at my facebook photos (yeah, delete.) and just…I don’t know. I’m just very unsettled. So I’ll probably end up asking Taiwan Chris to go with me this Sunday (or someone, I refuse to go alone) and…we’ll see what happens next. I’m afraid that I might have to turn this down, but I can’t….I can’t ignore this apprehension.
What do you guys think about a woman’s apprehension even if it’s unfounded? Have you ever felt that?
