Boldness and the job

I am employed by the Dept of Education of the city where I live. So essentially I am a city employee. It’s no secret that I love my job, I enjoy my co workers both nurses  and paras and teachers alike. It’s great that I work with other nurses. In this profession you need someone to talk to, to bounce things off of or simply vent to someone who really gets it.

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about my position of working for the city and my commission to spread the Gospel. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t afraid of putting my job in jeopardy if I were to talk about God to the students in my school. I’m not concerned with fear when it comes to talking about God to my coworkers, although I could use some boldness in that area. There are many I work with  who could use more Jesus in their lives, but then again who couldn’t use more Jesus in their lives? I know I could.

There are a few people at work that I’ve been transparent with concerning my faith in God. And I’m sure the ones I haven’t talked to about God can guess. But I don’t want them to guess I want all to know I am a follower of Christ, that He is real and has changed my life and He can change theirs as well.

My church is having a block party at The National Lighthouse Museum down by the ferry this Saturday June 15. I wish we could go but it’s Lelly’s prom that day. I don’t want to miss any of it. It seems like yesterday I was chasing this toddler down the street, man she was fast and strong willed. She’s still strong willed. Good for her! If there’s something she wants she goes after it. God has been so good to me concerning my children and my husband. Even the challenges we faced with Thomas, God was with us all the way even when I couldn’t feel His presence I know He did not forsake us, there’s too much evidence that His fingerprints were all over our lives.
