5 Minute Friday: Because

Five Minute Friday!

I have 5 minutes. Why? Because!

GO!

My employment situation is a negative mess. While I am grateful to have a job, I am not a good fit to the position or the management style. There are some days that I have to get up from my chair, walk out the door, and take a trip around the warehouse while praying. It is emotionally draining. Many Many days I ask God, “WHYYYYYYYYYYYY???”

It has been 10 months, and just this week, this nerve wracking week, I began to get some answers from God.

“Because, you draw nearest to me when you can’t fix your situation by yourself.”

“Because, I am using this frustrating place to speak to you. You can hear me, don’t pretend you can’t.”

“Because there are some people there that need to speak to you about me every day, and you have found yourself needing the encouragement of those fellow believers each day. Right?”

“Because. I don’t have to explain all of My plans to you. Just trust Me.”

While it encourages me to hear God in this, it has not made the job or the work place any easier….yet…it was a bear of a week.  I have a lot of self searching to do before that happens, I am sure. But He is right, I do hear Him talking to me. I’ll happily take that as my starting place!

STOP.

Trust Him with all your heart (Psalm 28:7),
