So I’ve had a rough last couple of weeks in the workplace. EXTREMELY hard. All that kept happening was getting me pushed up against a wall. I was given the “promotion” of co-managing the office with the other head secretary, (without a raise). He told me because I was a natural born leader, always motivating, and pushing people to be their best and especially because I didn’t care what others thought about me, which he said, is rare. Well I don’t know about all that stuff but I do know that if you tell me I can’t, I will show you it can be done.
I came up against some opposition from the person I thought would least likely give me trouble. As she was my friend who brought me to her church almost 2 years ago. At the time, I took it personally, like what? Who is this person? I kept asking God, what am I missing, what am I not seeing? Mind you, I had personal battles going on at the same time as this. I kept it together saying, God won’t give me more than I can handle. Everyday it was something new. I kept pushing forward, tired, physically, mentally, and spiritually. Finally, this weekend I saw what He needed me to see. I was praying and fell asleep. I saw another co worker of mine hunched over, as if in pain, and heard these words, “She is hurt”. Then I turned and I was standing in a quonset, a building made of corrugated metal and having a semicircular cross section, and I saw steel beams being piled in front of me and I saw myself either hugging my friend from church or blocking her from something. The funny thing is that I could hear the tv and tried waking up. When I did I was like what was that? I left it at that. Sunday at church, I prayed and again I heard, “she is hurt” and my other coworker came to mind. The sermon fit the bill, as God always seems to do that to me. Pastor spoke of not letting the enemy divide was should be united; that if your friend, saved or not, complained or felt ill, that we were supposed to join them in prayer and not claim the illness or ill feeling. I instantly saw myself in that quonset again. See, I think my friend from church was/is needing reinforcement and I’m supposed to give it to her, protect her instead of letting the enemy use someone close to us to divide us. I told my friend today at work, as yesterday there was no time to tell her after service. I said, i don’t know if that’s what I’m supposed to do or if that is what that means, but I’m going with my gut, my spirit is telling me to. My coworker, whom He showed me and said she was hurt, she doesn’t realize that she’s being used by the enemy, so together my friend and I will pray it up and lift us all up in prayer to kick that enemy out of our united circle. He has no place there, never will have place there, ever!
I struggled these last few weeks, man did I ever. But had I not, I wouldn’t know what to do when He showed me. He’s been doing a lot of that lately. Showing me things, just as I’m about to wake up or just as I am falling asleep.
I’m glad I had the eyes to see, ears to hear, and the heart to accept. Thank you Father! Ever so faithful.
