Over at The High Calling, David Rupert thanks God for his crummy job:
I sense that I’m not alone. During the recession my friends went from the rolls of short-term unemployed to long-term. Others were underemployed, finding work as temps or part time workers, benefits trimmed or stripped outright.
Others had to do way more with way less. We are still recovering.
Rather than let my employment challenges drag me down, I’ve decided to take back the workplace for God’s glory, and I’m doing it through an attitude of gratitude. The seed of thankfulness was first planted by scripture, “In all things give thanks.” It was watered by Ann Voskamp, with her book,One Thousand Gifts, where she dares me to “live fully”, right where I am.
So, I’m putting the challenge into action. And it’s working.
