These last few months have been really challenging for me when it comes to my job. A couple of years ago, I was promoted to a job that was close to my home. This job was ‘right up my alley’, so to speak.

The job came with a great boss and a great co-worker. It was work heaven! I was so grateful to God, as I had walked many a difficult way to get there.

I felt it was a reward for all my hard work and dedication to all the other jobs I had before. It was a significant moment for me. I had entered this organization as a clerical assistant, and worked my way up.

Living out of a box

How many of you know that God will dry up the water brook, like he did with his prophet Elijah (1 Kings 17: 1-7)? And when that water brook in my life dried up, it really dried up!

For the last six months, I have practically been living out of a box. I have to keep moving from one place to the next. I am travelling from one end of the country to the next. It has been a wow moment (in time) for me.

I have been exposed to so many issues. Now I look back and realize how ‘good’ I had it before. Two weeks ago, I had an opportunity to say no to all these difficulties and return to my safe zone.

Should I say no?

And I really wanted to say “no” to staying. And a huge resounding “yes” to going back to my previous job.

But I have learned to inquire of God before I make decisions in my life now. I have been burnt for bad decision-making without Him in the past.

God’s Word over you will prosper where He sends you

Well, before I could get to asking God, a wonderful friend of mine sent me this long email, as God had spoken to her. And in essence, she said – God’s Word over you will prosper everywhere He sends you!!

I couldn’t say a word! And, if you know me at all, you would realize it takes a lot to make me speechless! Oh, would I have just loved to hear I could leave. But here, God was saying to stay put, because this is where He needed me to be.

I honestly struggled with it. Almost everything about staying was tough – the hours, the travelling, the expense, being in a strange environment with new people and so much more.

Yet this is what God was asking me to do. I took a deep breath, knowing that God is in control of my life and I said a very quiet yes to Him. Then I let my current boss know that I would stay.

God sees what we don’t

It’s been tough and I’ve had my moments. But I trust God sees what I don’t. And, I know He is able to take care of me, no matter what situation comes my way. He has and will prosper my ways.

Are you having moments (in time) like this or just ones that truly take your breath away? Do you feel God has forgotten you? Or, do you feel there will never be an end to your situation? Do you see no reason for you to be or stay in the current situation? I leave God’s word with you as an encouragement today:

Genesis 39:2,3 But the Lord was with Joseph, and he [though a slave] was a successful and prosperous man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian. And his master saw that the Lord was with him. And that the Lord made all that he did to flourish and succeed in his hand.

Genesis 39:5 the Lord blessed the Egyptian’s house for Joseph’s sake; and the Lord’s blessing was on all that he had in the house and in the field.

Proverbs 16:7 When a man’s ways please the LORD, he makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.

Keep trusting in the Lord to make your path clear. He will be with you and prosper you, no matter where you are today. May His grace be sufficient now and always, Amen.
