Storm Lesson....

Its the time of the year when we do appraisals at my work place.....and mine did not go too well....

See, I have worked really hard this year...put in a lot of overtime and have had really tight deadlines.....my boss has a vexatious spirit about her...that troubles my soul.....troubles me so much that when asked whether I'd like to return to my former department.....I said....*Yes*.....and that did not sit well with her.....and she is now threatening me with the sack....

Life is often filled with such moments....storms that brew suddenly....and we find ourselves caught in the eye....anxious thoughts and fear are normal responses....when these come....I turn to God....and pray and ask Him to open my eyes.....

In this storm..I have learnt the following;

  • Truth is not always appreciated and not always known. I spoke out and in the process discovered that my boss did not fully understand my workload...which she acknowledged...nevertheless, when I opted out....the winds stirred!
  • Listen to God. Knowing my appraisal would be "intense"...I insisted on another boss being present. To safeguard against bias. He saw my predicament and gave me the "opt out option"...an option I didn't know existed....but when presented, I knew God had availed a way out for me and I took it. My former dept is now in the process of presenting me with a new offer and I am glad and hopeful it will surpass my present.
  • Trust God. My appraisal did not catch God by surprise. I had prayed before it and trusted God for His will to be done. When the storm came - I prayed thus..." I am in trouble, God - listen to my prayer! I am afraid of my enemies (the sack) - save my life!"....and God answered me..."Do not be afraid!". So it is right for me to praise God because He answers prayers. He answers by giving us victory and does wonderful things to save us. People all over the world and across distant seas....TRUST IN GOD.
