"Thank you, Megan." Valerie locked her car and put her keys in her purse as both women walked toward the office.
Megan walked close to Valerie. "Did you hear what happened while you were gone?"
Valerie started to frown. "No."
Megan looked around before she spoke. "Mr. Johnson sold the company and we're moving to Cincinnati."
Valerie's jaw dropped. "You're kidding. Are we going to be able to keep our jobs?"
Megan talked softly. "Well it's either one of two choices, move or look for a new job."
Valerie started to tear up. "Move? I have family here. I also can't be without a job."
At the end of the day, Valerie shuffled to the owner's office. "Mr. Johnson, I have my time sheet."
Mr. Johnson smiled. "Very good Valerie, You've looked sad today. Are you feeling okay?"
Valerie looked down on the floor. "I heard you sold the company and are moving to Cincinnati."
Mr. Johnson's eyes popped out of his head. "Who told you that?"
Mr. Johnson shook his head. "Well, it's not true. I didn't sell the company. Your job is safe."
We can't believe everything we hear; Valerie believed the lie that her company was sold. The enemy likes to put lies into our heads.
Valerie was able to find out the truth. As Christians, our source of truth is the Bible. We may believe lies like we're worthless or are evil. The truth is we are well worth it, so much that Jesus accepted the punishment for us, so we could have eternal life.
Put on the full armor of God so that you can fight against the devilâ€™s evil tricks. Ephesians 6:11. (NCV)
Dear Jesus, help us not to believe the lies that Satan puts in our mind. Help us to believe the truth that is in your word of what you say about us. Thank you for dying on the cross so that we can have eternal life with you. In Jesus' name, Amen.
