I thought I would share this with you all as sometimes God can use us to change somebody’s life, when we are still unaware.

A couple of months back, I had to work with a new team on a new project. For some reason, I was not comfortable to work with this team. One of my colleagues (X) was picking on me everyday. I was tired. Also, my immediate supervisor was causing some problems, which made me rework a lot of times. Being a Bible student, I knew I had to control my emotions and continue to work in peace with patience.

Every time I had a meeting with my supervisor and X, I would get tensed and too cautious to say anything. I continued being quiet. I heard some of my other colleagues telling me how nasty my supervisor was and how he had troubled many by his rude and inhuman behavior.

I have a little keychain that has a picture of Christ on the Cross of Calvary on one side and the words “CHRIST DIED FOR ME” on the other. I always keep this keychain in my hand wherever I go in and out of office. It was my mother’s keychain when I was not even born. The words on the keychain helped me so much in this trouble time. It was then that I realized how difficult it is to forgive your neighbor and forget. Trust me, it is not easy. But every time I looked at the words on my keychain, I would realize that Jesus Christ loved me though I was undeserving. He forgave me all my sins and for that He had to pay a price. Why shouldn’t I forgive my supervisor and X? I thought to myself that Satan is trying to mess up my peace when Lord is trying to teach me something – To love my fellow colleagues.

I continued being calm and quiet only to give way to God’s judgment. I believed that nothing was hidden from Him. I continued being nice, kind, and loving to my supervisor and X in spite of their being unpleasant to me. And what a change, today after six months my supervisor has changed so much. He has become so much more understanding and decent in his behavior. I often share Christ with him and send him some Bible reading and invite him to Crusade meetings. He is more willing to change his life. I believe that someday He will accept Jesus Christ as his savior and surrender himself to the Lord.

Truly as said in 1 Peter 3:15, NIV we always have to be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks [us] to give the reason for the hope that [we] have. For you never know what our witness might do in someone’s life.

God Bless All.

Only,
Joy
