Over the past few weeks, my place of employment has put some cost-cutting measures into place that have resulted in people losing their jobs.
As an HR person, I am generally aware of who is being laid off in advance, and I always pray for those employees scheduled to go. I pray that they find other jobs (even better jobs) really soon. That they will not feel inadequate or unqualified in their fields. That their self-esteem doesn't suffer.
In reality, no private sector job is safe anymore, and I know that my job could easily be next. Occasionally, that thought brings me stress.
But not for long.
My faith isn't in my employer, after all. My faith is in God. One provides a paycheck, the other supplies my need. I might be without employment tomorrow, but I won't ever be without. God is my source, and he will provide. That thought brings me peace. ♦
