"I recently received a promotion that came with a raise I was pleased to learn was significantly higher than I expected. I soon learned that my new duties were also much higher than I expected. After awhile, I determined the increased workload and stress were not worth the amount of the raise. I prayed everyday that God would give me the knowledge, skills and abilities to handle the increased responsibilities. I became discouraged many times. But through prayer, faith messages, the Word and the people God sent across my path continuously, He reminded me that He has my back. After several months, senior leadership concluded it was too much for one person and handed my duties off to a team of others. A team of four or five people now share the workload I carried by myself. My workload is now much lighter and though there was an attempt to demote me to my previous position, God intervened. My new responsibilities are much easier to manage, the raise is intact and I am no longer constantly stressed and losing sleep. In short, I got my joy back. God is good to me!"
