I remember a time when I had been called to work in a particular job setting. It was a wonderful place to work; however, the job that had been set before me was very difficult. I had almost convinced myself I needed to find another job, due to the fact of my limited understanding of the task before me. However, as I committed this decision to prayer, God made clear that I was to stay in that current position. As I obeyed, God gave me understanding and taught me things I am still using to this day. Sister, stay where God has you and ask Him to help you with your task. He will. He will do more than you could ever think possible. He is faithful, trust Him [Proverbs 3:5-6].

“This job has been given to me to do. Therefore, it is a gift. Therefore, it is a privilege. Therefore, it is an offering I may make to God. Therefore, it is to be done gladly if it is done for Him. Here, not somewhere else, I may learn God’s way. In this job, not in some other, God looks for faithfulness.” 

―Elisabeth Elliot

“Restlessness and impatience change nothing except our peace and joy. Peace does not dwell in outward things, but in the heart prepared to wait trustfully and quietly on Him who has all things safely in His hands.”
