I’ve been in a bit of a funk at work lately… and everything seemed to be annoying me to the core. Perhaps you’ve had similar spells from time to time? I suppose many people do. But for the most part, I feel I do a good job managing the day to day issues and remain positive… but I was flat overwhelmed last week. At that moment, I sent my wife the following text at 9:03am on Wednesday November 30th “Never felt more blessed in my personal life, but never been more dissatisfied in my work life”. Admittedly, I was at an all-time low.
A few minutes later, I was walking by one of the Assembly Production Cells… and saw something that changed my mood instantly. As I got closer, I started to feel a bit of shame and embarrassment about my recent work attitude.
What I saw, was a small beam of light shining through the wall. I consider this a reminder that no matter what the worldly troubles I face, it is nothing compared to the troubles Christ faced for me. And even though I may struggle, I need to remain focused on him… and strive to be a bright spot in my workplace.
