In my career these days I am given some pretty big tasks. I am a leader and must balance many people on the staff at work and juggle schedules to meet many needs and time schedules. Some days it is tough. And certain parts of the day are even tougher. We have time demands and needs of others to uphold and make it work for all on the staff and the public with whom we interact.
I am a planner and like to know in advance what is happening. With other people, knowing in advance does not always work. Things happen. Schedules change. For the most part I am a flexible person, but when I must meet schedule demands and maintain positive customer service, it is difficult to meet everyone’s needs and wants while maintaining company policies and time schedules.
I must remember Proverbs 3:7. Do not be wise in your own eyes.
Yikes! I don’t always know best, but God does! God knows how those schedules will work out. He knows how each person on staff will get what they need when they need it. It becomes my job to communicate to everyone that company policies, time schedules, work demands, and customer service must become priority while we all work together to meet our individual needs and schedules.
When I know my weaknesses and know that I am helpless and hopeless without God, that’s when He steps in to show off and make everything work out for the best of all involved. I must be strong and stand strong on policies and meeting needs the best way God sees to do it.
