I have been at this office for 5 years and did not care who I hurt, didn’t talk to people at work, they knew nothing about me as I did not want to be the gossip around the office, would tell someone off before thinking. However still worked hard and did my job so they kept me. My kids and I were having problems, I was having a year long pitty party and it was all about me and nothing was going right. I was giving my problems to God and wanting him to fix things but then I would take the problem back and put the problem and me in a bubble and no one could get into my bubble, you wouldn’t have been able to get through with a chisel and then I wondered why God was not answering any of my prayers and why he wasn’t there for me.
One day he gave me a picture of him with his arms out for me to come in and me with my back to him. For the last year people at work have noticed that I have changed, I never raise my voice I treat everyone with kindness and I just don’t let the day to day stuff get to me. Now, when I do get a little stressed out, I think what did I do differently and usually it’s because I did not ask for His guidance.
I have had people ask me what is changed in my life and I tell them about my church and my Jesus. I have had people that did not know me tell me how great it was to work with me. Praise God He has changed my life!
