Do all things without grumbling or questioning, that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world. (Phil.2:14,15)
We are in the middle of a very busy season at work and, to keep it short, it can get frustrating at times. Recently, I found myself grumbling and complaining a few times. Mot of the time it was for little things. Other times it was simply because of the (compounding) workload and some new processes that we have recently implemented in the middle of a large new project.
And then, a shift.
I get an unexpected email from my manager.
In it, he sends one sentence letting me know that I'm eligible for a bonus and the amount. What!? I didn't even know what to say. I was thankful. Gratitude seemed to replace the grumbling. I knew there were talks about a possible bonus coming but nothing concrete. And what surprised me most was the amount.
You know one of the things that came to mind? How foolish I was for all the complaining and grumbling. It got me nowhere. I still had to finish the work. The day still went on. The week passed. Thankfully, I still work from home and none of my co-workers heard me! Daniela reminded me how good the Lord is with us even when we're not so good.
