I work in a high stressed environment of really intense patients with head and neck cancer etc. I've been doing this for 33 yrs.
Everything started out so good but; quickly changed and between me and the other nurse I worked with continually; intervening all day long advocating for our patients but.... Refuses, to listen to us and it is causing harm to our patients.
...I was so disturbed I couldn't relax and go to sleep. I felt like a failure that I have no love for this doctor... and was kinda down on myself.
My work environment can be so dark. The nurses I work with are all wonderful and all love and care for the patients and each other. Do you have any wisdom for me? I don't want to carry yesterday into today.
The darkness has no control over the light from a single candle. One person walking with God is always in the majority. Greater is He in us than he that is in the world. Is there any situation that is too hard for The Lord? The joy of The Lord is our strength. The list goes on and on.
The only thing that matters is what you think of God, of yourself in Him, of what He thinks of you.
Here's my question. What if this is your Caleb moment where " the enemy will be your prey?" What if The Lord has, like Esther " brought you here for such a time as this?" What if this is your coming into your identity moment?
All I am requesting is that you sit quietly before The Lord and ask Him, " Is this the moment when You want me to realize who I can really be in You?" " Is this what you have been working towards in how you see me in Jesus?" "Am I coming into something that You have set aside for me in my Identity in The Christ?"
There is no pressure here. Just a huge Rest in Jesus according to Matt 11:28-30.
