A Reflection of My Faith
I haven’t been posting for a while except for the PR posts and the scheduled ones because a lot has happened lately. I signed up for an HR Mentoring Program, my dad died and experienced struggles and challenges in the workplace. I have been in a constant struggle between choosing values or greed and it really took a huge toll on my work performance that ended up tendering my resignation. I knew it is a prayer issue and it has been on top of my prayer list since then. Actually, I haven’t found the exact words to pray about not until I learned it from the HR Mentoring Program’s #ExecutiveMaturity pep talk. I knew I had to accept my failure in the workplace without remorse because I fully trust that it is all part of God’s perfect plan for me. Now, how did God spoke His answers? Through my daily devo. Allow me to share my prayer points and how it was answered.
- If I am resigning with the trouble of values or greed;
“Yes, everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have discarded everything else, counting it all as garbage, so that I could gain Christ” Philippians 3:8 NLT
- When finally it was impressed on my heart to choose and stick to my values;
“If you serve Christ with this attitude, you will please God, and others will approve of you, too.” Romans 14:18 NLT
- When I finally had the decision to resign because I cannot compromise my values;
“I know the Lord is always with me. I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me.” Psalms 16:8 NLT and, “Search for the Lord and for his strength; continually seek him.” 1 Chronicles 16:11 NLT
I tendered my resignation after a year and 2 months and it has been a first time. My shortest work tenure is at least 2 years and it is also a first time to resign without a workplace to transfer immediately after. From the last B1GFridays, God impressed on my heart to completely depend on Him and to be #ALLin as I surrender everything to Him. Surprisingly, I am not worried and I praise God for the peace on my heart as He put pieces together in front of me, making it easy for me to leave. I know God has never wanted for me to fail but I will put down my pride and admit to my poor performance in order to gain victory over pride and please God.
“Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit.” Romans 8:5 NLT
Honestly, as the last few weeks of my stay here in my current workplace comes nearer, I sometimes feel anxious but I am quickly reminded of my Faith to the greatest provider anyone could ask for. I am quite surprised by the number of invites I am getting for interviews and I am still seeking for God’s plans in where He can use me for His Glory. I trust that He will STILL place me in Learning and Development and I know I have to obey wherever it is. I may have not lived in accordance with the standards set by my workplace, but I know I learned a lot from them and I have lived in accordance with God’s standards. A personal conviction that I must constantly choose to die to myself, pick up my cross, and follow Jesus all waking days of my life. I am nothing but thankful for my current workplace and I am praying for everyone.
Also, amidst the grief over my dad’s recent death, God allowed me to grow under an HR Mentoring Program which I attend every Saturday and hopefully graduating this October. My heart knows comfort when it feels one. Always thankful for the provision and I knew I had to pay for the program really soon. Sayang, hindi na ako qualified sa Full Scholarship ng program. Lol. Well, another blessing came where I can earn from doing one of my passions. I found a client to write contents again, yes, I STILL ghostwrite. Though it doesn’t pay as much as my previous client, any amount is better than none at all! I praise the Lord for everything! I really do feel that I am not alone on this one and I know I just have to lean my life on the right rock – and that is Jesus.
Jesus’ love is unchanging and everlasting, how great is His love! I will never deserve this kind of love and N number of chances in life if it weren’t for His Grace and Mercy. For anyone out there reading this and could have been experiencing worse, I pray that you may not lose heart. Face the challenges with Joy and lift every burden to Jesus through Prayer and live in accordance with His teachings.
“It is God’s will that your honorable lives should silence those ignorant people who make foolish accusations against you. For you are free, yet you are God’s slaves, so don’t use your freedom as an excuse to do evil. Respect everyone, and love the family of believers. Fear God, and respect the king.” 1 Peter 2:15-17 NLT
Please pray for me as I spend my last few weeks in my employer and may it be filled with the Holy Spirit and may I be guarded against circumstances that would challenge my convictions. May I serve my employer in the last few weeks with grace and that would ultimately point to God’s Glory. Also, for positive results from my interviews. 🙂
How can I pray for you?
