"Behold I stand at the Door and Knock" Rev. 3:20

« on: January 13, 2012, 10:06:17 PM »

My boss was laid off today. She had been a wonderful mentor to me in the short time I have been at the company. I don't know all the BS drama that has gone on at this company, but she tried to shield me from it. She also made a highly concerted effort to build business for the company, and it looks like some of her ideas are coming to fruition. Now she is out of a job, and I am to report to the president who set her on her way.
If this wasn't enough, I have been talking to a lady friend that I have known for several years, with whom I am trying to start a Christian relationship with. We have been going about things the exact opposite of most relationships; that is we are surveying the entire landscape to see what the problems are, and how to tackle them. It looks like we might be able to make a go of it; now I have this s***.
Aside from referring me to passages such as MT 6:33, any Christian suggestions?
Any and all prayer, especially for my deeply Jewish former boss, Rachel, is greatly appreciated

It's sad when such things happen. All I can offer, besides prayers for you all, is that you not forget your boss. I don't know if you have a relationship where you can meet outside of work to comiserate, but try to emulate her qualities as a mentor for others whie at your job. As for your lady friend, I would say let the relationship develop organically, with prayer and patience.

God be with you.

Lord have mercy!

To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.
