I’m Still Here
Posted January 4, 2013on:
If I don’t have any other testimony, I have this…”I’m still here”.
This past year has brought many struggles, much confusion but also revelation. Much of the bad stuff was of my own doing, making poor choices and getting myself in trouble.
Once again God saved me from myself. God’s love for me blows my mind really.
You know the verse that says, “pray for your enemies”? I tried this with my boss. Granted, my boss really isn’t my enemy but sometimes the way he treats me it feels like he is. He can be pretty brutal with his words. And I can have a pretty bad attitude when it comes to someone verbally attacking me, or rather I “perceive” it as an attack. I was becoming pretty miserable and hating going to work every day. I DREADED it when I saw my boss’s car when I pulled up so I would sit in my car for a few minutes before every shift and ask God to help me get through my shift without getting upset, or storming out, or getting a bad attitude, and I would ask God to keep me tough and help me get through it biting my tongue, help me, help me………..
And then one day I got a smack upside the head!! The Holy Spirit said flat out, “Michele, you are praying the wrong prayer”. You should be praying for your boss. So I listened and started praying for my boss. I prayed with sincerity and that’s when things started to change. He wasn’t as rude and nasty to me like he usually was. He wasn’t constantly down my back about stuff. It changed!! or was it me who changed?
All I can say is the Lord is an amazing and wonderful God. He takes my breathe away. In everything I do I want to bring glory to Him. Through my prayers, through my mistakes, through my job, and through my daily life I praise Him.
