When our world seems to be flaking
We must engage in thanks-making
We break zero-sum
When we become
Part of the Body He’s breaking!
Today I will feed those I love
As part of the brokenness
Of Christ’s Body
O Lord, being thankful is hard
When my heart feels pierced by a shard
Of this world, now broken and torn
By people so lost and forlorn
Lord I need your grace today
To love those who seem in my way
Help me see they are the way
I become more like You each day
Update: Through a series of miracles, I am starting my dream job on July 25th as Director of Product at Quilt Data, after less than four weeks unemployed. Thanks for your prayers!
Yesterday I was laid off from the startup I’ve worked at for the last six years.
I am incredibly privileged to be a highly-educated tech worker in a growing industry, from a (formerly) two-income family. But it still hurts. Especially since we haven’t really recovered (financially or emotionally) from my prior layoff.
Which is why this post today from my friends at Pure Glory really spoke to me. Rather than reacting out of fear and dread, I choose to believe God is using this crisis to confront the doubt, deceptions, and division that have stolen my joy and crippled my impact.
Because the only thing truly standing in the way of my destiny is my own sin. So I rejoice that God is using these challenging circumstances to bless, purify and heal me in ways I could never imagine.
No matter how much it hurts.
