Work Musing

Sometimes I think about the doubts that I have regarding my future husband. It can be hard when 1. you’ve had damaging experiences and 2. when no one who you feel like you’d get along with is actually interested in you (womp womp).

However, I mentioned to my CEO a couple weeks ago about wanting a cabinet for my filled up notebooks and files and he found a picture of one that he would like to get for me. He e-mailed me today to make sure that I liked it and since I’m never really picky when it comes to work stuff like that I wrote that yes it looks good thank you.

He called me after I replied and said “I just want to make sure I get it right and it’s useful for you.”

It’s in those moments that I remind myself how blessed I feel to have such a kind, caring, smart, etc etc boss to work for. It is literally shocking to me the longer that I’m at my company how great he is, and how I’m really honored to be working closely with him in my position. If you’ve ever worked at a thankless job you know that you can have a prestigious role but a horrible boss and it ruins the whole thing.

At times like that I remind myself that if God can give me a great boss and a great job when I didn’t think it was possible, He can definitely do that again. I’ve doubted before but I am living in the delivered promise. If I doubt now I can be sure He will deliver again.

Friday Inspiration 12.19.14

Psalm 136 MSG

1-3 Thank God! He deserves your thanks.
    His love never quits.
Thank the God of all gods,
    His love never quits.
Thank the Lord of all lords.
    His love never quits.

4-22 Thank the miracle-working God,
    His love never quits.
The God whose skill formed the cosmos,
    His love never quits.
The God who laid out earth on ocean foundations,
    His love never quits.
The God who filled the skies with light,
    His love never quits.
The sun to watch over the day,
    His love never quits.
Moon and stars as guardians of the night,
    His love never quits.
The God who struck down the Egyptian firstborn,
    His love never quits.
And rescued Israel from Egypt’s oppression,
    His love never quits.
Took Israel in hand with his powerful hand,
    His love never quits.
Split the Red Sea right in half,
    His love never quits.
Led Israel right through the middle,
    His love never quits.
Dumped Pharaoh and his army in the sea,
    His love never quits.
The God who marched his people through the desert,
    His love never quits.
Smashed huge kingdoms right and left,
    His love never quits.
Struck down the famous kings,
    His love never quits.
Struck Sihon the Amorite king,
    His love never quits.
Struck Og the Bashanite king,
    His love never quits.
Then distributed their land as booty,
    His love never quits.
Handed the land over to Israel.
    His love never quits.

23-26 God remembered us when we were down,
    His love never quits.
Rescued us from the trampling boot,
    His love never quits.
Takes care of everyone in time of need.
    His love never quits.
Thank God, who did it all!
    His love never quits!

God doesn’t do temporary love–His love never quits. If it did–the psalmist would not repeat this every other line, right? We need to let this sink in. Just as He formed the cosmos and laid the foundations of Earth, He formed my brain and heart and laid the foundation of my body; my bones, my muscles, my organs, and so on. If this God didn’t care about humanity and was distant, why would He have taken the time to form each and every one of us? In times of despair and doubt and also in times of happiness and plenty we need to thank God for who He is and remember that He first loved us. He could create anything He wanted and chose to create mankind. No human love could ever match His love. While we are fickle God is faithful. While we are unsatisfied He is well pleased. God is faithful, His love never quits. If this is one simple thing you can remember, repeat it over your situations today. Speak it to your reflection in the mirror. Encourage your soul.
