STEPPING UP

“The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” – Deuteronomy 31:8

At the start of 2009, my boss talked to me and told me he was making me his shadow. This meant that I would be able to experience and do the things he does for work, so I could prepare myself to be a team leader as well. At first it was OK, and I could do almost everything that was asked of me. However, when things started getting more difficult and inconvenient, I started resisting. Who said I wanted to do this, anyway?
I was resisting all the changes and responsibilities because I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to live up to the expectations of the people around me. I was afraid that I would fail at being a leader, and seeing the huge amount of work my boss had to do every day was enough to discourage me from my career plans.
Six months passed and I was able to finish my shadow program successfully. Up to this day, I wonder how I was able to finish the program when half the time I wanted to give up. I know that despite all the hardships, God was with me the entire time, reminding me that He was with me every step of the way. Tina Matanguihan (tina.matanguihan@gmail.com)

REFLECTION:
Whatever situation you are in, remember that God is in control.

Jesus, may I never forget that You are with me in every step that I take.
