There’s been a recent tug on my heart. A heart for the workplace.
I’ve noticed God’s been opening doors for interesting conversations. Conversations about God on Ash Wednesday with the most random coworker. I’m not denying what’s going on…nothing happens by accident. Everything is known by the sovereign God so how can I doubt?
This past Sunday PB spoke about Exodus 14:13-14:
“Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the LORD will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still.”
KEEP CALM & BE STILL.
I was challenged once again during responsive prayer time. God, where and what are you calling me to today? Where am I fretting because of my little faith? Where are you asking me to “be still” aka “Don’t be afraid, stand firm and be still.” Some of the things that came to mind were:
Bringing God into the workplace.
As we sang Oceans, the line “Spirit lead me where my faith is without borders…” Was a prayer of mine. Lead me Holy Spirit where my faith has no ends, no bounds. Only when I have faith, exercise faith will I be able to see God work in His ways- the big, grand, overwhelming ways of God…otherwise, I’ll be settling for my modest calculations which only produce modest results.
I drafted an email today to my coworkers. All the ladies. I thought I’d just call it a school project and hold it from April to December. First Friday Devotionals starting from April. Lunch will be provided. I’ll send out an invitation on Wednesday the week of to get a headcount. I figure just doing the “ReThink” devotionals would be simple, relevant and not overwhelming for them. So far, Rosa and Jane responded and I was amazed already. It’s causing me to build a heart of prayer for my coworkers. To see God’s love penetrate their lives in a new way where they can no longer deny God’s presence.
I wait to see you work God. You work..not me. I’m just gonna be still.
