As much as I dislike working for someone else, I always do my best work even though it may not be what I desire at the time. In life we will face various situations and circumstances that will spring up at the most unusual times and places. Whether itís a lay-off, starting a new job; moving to a new state, Care-giving, a divorce or break-up; sharing a college dorm, sharing a jail cell, babysitting, filling in, doing jury duty, or volunteering. Itís how we deal with these situations and circumstances that will determine whether the outcome will be positive or a negative, a blessing or a curse.

Some places, situations or circumstances we unwillingly find ourselves in, can be quite awkward-to say the least! Some are certainly not welcomed, while others are due to our folly. Whatever we are faced with, it would be in our best interest to put our best self forward. We all need to grow more and exercise faith in new areas, in the meantime; our main goal should be maintaining a positive and Godly attitude, humbling ourselves to a servants level. For this could be another golden opportunity to reap a harvest of blessings that will move us closer to the greater good of our own lives and ministries. Nevertheless, for whatever reason we find ourselves in unusual situations and circumstances, we have a since of relief knowing that we have done our best work.

Great message! You might want to work in a personal example or two in detail to help keep the writer's interest. This is a great start!!

Very powerful message. I especially liked your line about situations being a "blessing or a curse." It's all a matter of interpretation, isn't it? Thanks for your entry!
