Luke 1:37 (NKJV) For nothing is impossible with God.
The other day I read a story about a man and his experience of being fired from his job. After the initial shock had worn off, he grieved for a while, and then he sat around the house and did nothing. Because he had considerable savings, he didn’t have to work, so he didn’t. Staying home became easier and easier. What are you doing that makes life easier, yet it robs you of your future?
That was ten years ago, and now his savings are depleted. Being fired left him without employment, but his self-imposed sabbatical left him without self-respect. Now he doesn’t know what to do with himself. If you lose your job – which a lot of American’s are experiencing these days, don’t drop out of life. Hang in there. As a matter of fact, this may be an opportunity for what I call a Tipping point change.
Tipping points are those moments in life when a trend is recognized and a decision that changes everything impacts our lives in our society and culture. And a crossroads moment like the loss of a job offers you the opportunity to make such a decision. Where are you in your life and career?
Point to ponder – Tipping points can be negative trends or can be energizing, we can have faith-inducing trend moments. If you have lost your job, are you thinking of a career change, or know someone who is, think of it as a Tipping point, and see what God has in store for you. Please don’t rob your own life of the future God has in store for you!
All for His Glory,
