Starting New Job Monday For Training

I've been out of work for 5 years now and just recently took some training and got hired on the spot. I just feel alot of pressure to do above my best because its a good paying job with good benefits and I dont want to mess anything up in training or afterwards. I'm very nervous.

Hi Janet; You sound a lot

Hi Janet;

You sound a lot like me. I always get nervous about new work and that comes from how the LORD has used me. In my 30's I lost my husband to injury and illness. Before he went home to be with the LORD, he said: "You are going to be a lot like Michael Landon's character on highway to heaven. haha. I thought that was the most ridiculous thing I had ever heard. But..20 years later? He was RIGHT.. and that was from the Lord.
The LORD has a way of placing us when, where, and in His timing with whom He wants us to work with. His hand is on us as He gives us both the gifts and the anointing (like the artisans in the OT) to do the work He calls us to do. Sometimes people can be at a job all of their lives.. IF this is what the LORD desires. Sometimes less. What I am trying to communicate is this: Trust.. let go.. and let GOD be Sovereign in this job. He will give you what you need to do what He has placed you there for. The anointing is yours.. just rest in it. He will 'perform' all things for you as the scripture says. IF and when HE desires to promote you.. or move you out... sometimes it's really hard.. but it's GOD or God allowing it. He has ordered every step and day of your life.. just be intimately abiding in Him and watch His work.. He loves you and WILL sustain you and ALL the needs you and your family have. Blessings!
