I have been presented with a challenge that requires me to face that which strikes fear deep within and to communicate patiently with my boss who has proven to be less than ethical and is definitely not straightforward. The fear being multi-faceted, but at the foremost was the fear of being unemployed. So I communed briefly with my Guides and was encouraged to seek out a Bible verse on strength. This is not a normal avenue for me to take. I was not raised to reach for the Bible and even though I have read it from front-to-back I prefer to communicate with Spirit directly. But I obeyed and the two verses I found online resonated with me.
In the day that I called, you answered me. You encouraged me with strength in my soul. — Psalms 138:3
So that with good courage we say, “The Lord is my helper. I will not fear. What can man do to me?” — Hebrews 13:6
Strength is copiously available for when I do Work, but when it comes to the mundane world we exist in, sometimes I need a little extra reassurance that my day-to-day needs are taken care of. I cannot explain why the energy in these verses eased my fear, but I am reminded time and again that I am taken care of by Spirit and it is known what I need in the physical to get by.
My intention is to write a detailed email to my supervisor, the owner of this small company – and explain why I am going to look for employment elsewhere and encourage him to begin the search to find someone better suited for this position. I will trust that Spirit will provide me with the strength and all other virtues necessary to accomplish this task as well as to carry me to the next place I deserve to be with all benefits I deserve. For I have learned another level in the lesson of self-worth.
One cannot be all things to one person, but one MUST be oneself to all.
