There are many people without work right now. Some have been laid off from their job. Some plants have closed their doors. The economy is not in very good shape. I consider myself fortunate in my career. I was discharged from the United States Air Force in December 1965 after 4 years service. I found a job before the end of December. The company I worked for was a very good company. After 20 years on the job the company was sold. It was sold 4 times over the years. I worked at the same job from December 1965 to June of 2007. I really enjoyed my career. In my 40 years I only missed 1 day. I always worked the first shift. I usually worked from 8 am until 5 pm. I was a day worker. I always started my day with a prayer. Sometimes I prayed beside my bed. Sometimes I prayed in the den. Sometimes I prayed in the kitchen. My thoughts in the morning were always focused on the Lord. My morning prayer set up my day working for the Lord. As you start your day look up to the Lord and ask for His guidance and blessings. Ask him to be your partner on the job. With Him at your side you can’t go wrong. Think about it. Some of you have a lifetime of work ahead of you. You need the company.
