My job has recently changed drastically. I have new responsibilities. I have to learn new things. I don't have a lot of self-confidence and change is not my friend. I've been assured that if I re-learn HOW to do my job I'll be amazed how much easier it is. I'm anxiously awaiting that day. I now have to send monthly statistics in to the State. The person that was supposed to do it didn't all last year. I have to go back and do all those months plus keep up with each month this year. I'm sure when I learn how to do it, it will not seem near as daunting as it does right now. I spent one whole day on the phone with help desk. Then, I couldn't reach her and had to leave a voicemail. She finally called back. At one point, I thought she was going to cry which made me want to cry. The best description I can give is like when a doctor is explaining something in doctor talk but, we don't understand the language. She helped the best she could; but, here I am without completing what should have been done last week.
I woke up very early one morning worrying. My phone has a Bible App that gives me a daily verse. I read Proverbs 3:25-26. "Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh. For the Lord shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken." It gave me peace. When overwhelmed with something, all I have to do is call on God. When I need help from God, I don't have to call His office, leave a message and wait. He personally answers each time. He doesn't care if it is a spiritual matter or a problem in my everyday life. He cares when I need help. When I bring my worries to God, unlike with my work help-desk, He can calm me down. Even when the problem is still there...I can have peace. Hebrews 4:16 tells us, "Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace in time of need." It doesn't mean that we will never again be humanly frustrated. It does mean that if we ask, He will help.
