Working In A Difficult Environment
(1)God...put him in the garden...to tend and keep it.Genesis 2:15 AMP

Reject any notion of victim-hood that's laying claim to your peace and robbing you of contentment. Your job, in spite of its challenges, would have been the dream of your forefathers. Hey, didn't you pray to get this job that you now complain about? As difficult as it may be to accept, you are in your present position for a reason; you are also there for a season. Study the course, take the tests, graduate and move on to what God has for you next. There's something you need to learn and take with you from your present position into your next one. Like what? (a) Skill building. (b) Character building. You may need to learn computer skills such as Excel and Microsoft Word - plus patience and gratitude. You may need to learn how to manage an office -plus manage your moods. For those ! who love the Lord, no experience is ever wasted. Listen: "All things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose" ( Romans 8:28 NKJV). Sometimes it's difficult to see this in the moment. When Joseph was in the pit and the prison, it was hard to see how this road would lead to the palace, but it did. God has a master plan for your life. Your current job may well be preparation for the job God has in mind for you. Look back at the steps that have moved you in your present direction. Then trust that God is using each experience to bring about His will - and your joy.
