Divine Favor At Work

"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!"


God is Provider

My year end bonus was approaching and my manager pulled me to the side before leaving the office to go over my performance for that quarter and also positive points and where I can improve. He started the conversation out with positive high notes and points and then went to where I can make improvements. All I was hearing and focused on was the improvements and I was starting to get a litttle discouraged and wondering how the meeting was going to end and where I was going to fall in the bonus pool. At the end of the meeting he handed me a sticky note with the amount of my bonus for the last quarter of 2017, I looked at it and had to take a second look. At first I thought it was $1300 dollars, second look I was almost in tears and over joyed! The actual amount was $13,000!!!!! But God!  2018 has started of as a year of blessing’s and financial stream lines for our family and we are only one and a half months into 2018. Our God is truly an amazing God!
