This week has been incredible in a sense that I have truly felt the presence of God in my life. I have done some things... and not done some things that I know would not have been possible without the existence of the Holy Spirit. I returned to my old management position on this past Monday. It's not what I personally wanted to do, but I prayed out of a most sincere heart that God's will be done in my life. I would only want to be there if that is where He will have me to be. Things worked out in such a way that it became obvious that there is some unfinished business with this company- a new phase of my development according to the Master's plan. I saw some things that made me uncomfortable, I became irritated at some points, and I even wondered briefly what on Earth could this return possibly mean for me?
I am being made here, friends. The tough times, the rough times, the pressure, and personalities. Dealing WITH them and not IN them is my assignment. A wise man of my church family once told me, "You can't have it made being made." How true this is. Everything in life won't be a bed of roses. And in order to reign with Him in Heaven we MUST learn to suffer like Jesus. It's not easy. But it will all be worth it!
