The Exodus List: 15. Anonymous

When I got my first 'proper' job after finishing my degree, I felt totally out my depth. I was thrown in to a management position even though I was very inexperienced. Looking around the workplace everyone seemed to be more confident and competent than me.

I started to dread going to work and was in tears every morning. My boss was always busy and I had moved to a new place to start the job so I didn't have many friends to speak to about it either. I was losing hope and on the verge of handing in my notice.

At this time God spoke to me through a song that was popular at the church I was attending

The lyrics are:

My soul magnifies the Lord and my spirit praises His Name

even death could not hold Him captive, even in the grave He is Lord.

If Jesus was still Lord even as He suffered and died then he was still Lord when I was having these work troubles.

After a while there was a restructuring and I got a new boss who was brilliant and invested a lot of tine in training me. But for some time I could only hope in the God who was Lord 'even in the grave'.
