Ladies, I can honestly say that this was one of the craziest work weeks ever! Considering my off days are Sundays and Mondays, Tuesdays feel like most people’s Mondays. So of course on Tuesday I started my week a little sluggish but I was oblivious to what the days ahead had in store for me! More than half way through the day my supervisor placed me on a FINAL warning for something I never received a verbal or written warning for. Needless to say, I almost lost control and verbally assaulted my superior but God helped me pull it together quickly. Afterwards, I returned to my desk and said a brief prayer to my Father just simply asking Him to do what He sees fit. By that point I had enough of the nonsense that the company stood for and I wanted God to grant the true desire of my heart…RELEASE from that mediocre job!
On Thursday I was called into the conference room where minutes later He did just that–I was RELEASED from my job! HALLELUJAH!! THANK YOU LORD!! I know you’re thinking I’m crazy for being happy after being terminated but if you knew how much I hated my job you would be praising His name as well. Every since I started working for that company I’ve hated every aspect of it–not just my position, but the overall structure. At first I prayed for another position and God granted me that only to show me how chaotic that place really was. The more God exposed to me about the way business was handled, the more I realized that He would never increase my territory there. God never operates in chaos nor will He allow His children to do the same. “Let all things be done decently and in order” (1 Corinthians 14:40)
Since I allowed FEAR to force me to stay with a company that was not worthy of my time and experience, God took it upon himself to remove me. The funny thing is that FEAR is nothing more than False Evidence Appearing Real! I was so afraid to trust God to give me more than this job that I stayed when I knew better. These days I am replacing that fear with FAITH that God has a FAVOR in His eye for me! The last few days I have been so relieved and care free simply because I know who is calling the shots from now on. This relationship that I have with Jesus entitles me to so much more. I’m sure some of what He has for me I may not qualify for but My God will make a way. “And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power” (Colossians 2:10)
Thank you for listening to my cares, concerns, gripes, and groans. Even though I might not be making moves to change my situation You are already handling it! It’s great to know that whatever I need, whether I know it or not, You have made sure to address it! I thank you for running the show from behind the scenes because I know for certain it is nothing but the God in ME! In Jesus’ Name, Amen!
Today I urge all women to EMPOWER yourselves to pray about it and wait for your response! Trust me you really do get what you pray for…as long as it’s in line with His will! Fortune cookie who? Horoscope what? Jesus is the only one I trust! Have a blessed week Ladies!
