Everyone watched me on the job, watched how a supervisor treated me harshly, rudely, and unfairly...but I continued to treat her with respect, forgiveness and love. For years I endured this treatment of me. Her name was Kate - and I often prayed for her, asking God to forgive her, and to help me weather the storms of mistreatment. One day God granted my prayers and rewarded me with a new supervisor who was the exact opposite. Kind, funny, and he came right on time! I had given birth and this new supervisor allowed me child care time off, and all kinds of flexibilities. The former boss remained there - hating my new life and work happiness. For nearly 8 years I enjoyed this new boss. But then he left. Evil didn't waste anytime in trying to make me miserable again, but I was ready.
Once again, I hid myself in God's word - covering myself and shielding myself from the mistreatment with prayer, forgiveness, and joy in my Salvation, and in the strength of God's word.
I also still vowed to show only kindness and respect which only made Kate perplexed and perhaps even resentful and angrier.
I often told her I loved her. I often shared my faith in God as the reason for my love for her. Eventually she was forced out of the workplace and soon after died. I was sad, because I just don't think she ever realized how truly and deeply I really did love her. Her successor was also mean-spirited towards me, and I marvel at how so gallantly satan will attack God's followers.
Yet, no one would believe how I won her over in the end, when she realized my faith in God was a true one. No one believed how blessing after blessing I received - with my husband getting a kidney transplant; my daughter diagnosed with Type 1 and doing wonderfully, and other blessings - all kinds of strife and health ailments thrown our way by the enemy, but each time God has us winning the battle.
No one seems to believe how with God, my life overcame and continues to overcome whatever the enemy throws at me in the workplace.
I am still working, and I was just denied a raise, and just denied a change in title - but I smile and say ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE when you have God so prominent in your life. The raise is going to come - you've got to believe me! I believe - because it is impossible to please God without Faith!
