My girlfriend has had to face many challenges in her workplace for several months, and one of the many reasons why is because of a lack of team chemistry around her.
When issues have surfaced, many of her peers have been quick to push them under a rug or sweep them into a corner. Brittany has tried many times to explain what she feels can help the issue or help move the company past some of the chaos that it faces today, but without a team around her that is willing to work out solutions, it’s very difficult, if not close to impossible, to make changes happen.
And, whether or not any action is eventually taken, it won’t change the fact that the dust piles are still sitting there. And one day, there will be nowhere else to put the dust.
I honor Brittany for how she has carried herself through this very challenging process. She’s done the best she can do with the resources she’s had to work with. She’s tried her hardest to be the very best team player she can be and respect the people in her workspace, whether they reciprocate that respect or not.
But, you can only deal with ignorance for so long.
So, in recent weeks, Brittany has been seeking new opportunities. She’s been taking her concerns to God, and she has asked for His direction on where she needs to take her next steps. I’m very excited to say that God is leading her toward some beautiful new doors, and it’s not a coincidence why.
1 Peter 3:14 says, “But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed.”
Brittany has suffered for doing the right thing for a long time in her current place of employment, but because she has remained steadfast in being obedient to His will, she will reap blessing from her efforts, whether they are accepted or appreciated by people or not.
If you are facing a similar situation right now, I’m here to tell you that God sees you and He sees the effort you are making to honor Him and do the right thing!
Always remember Colossians 3:23-24. “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.”
You’re not working for people. You’re serving your Creator. That’s pretty amazing!
The world can and will choose to dishonor His Word. You don’t have to.
