Today’s morning struggle at work is figuring out my purpose and place of value in my position. Just working on a report that is due today, I feel as though I have not been doing anything. I also feel everyone sees that I am not doing anything. What I think is happening is I am unable to be successful in my role, because I am stretched thinner than what feels possible and I don’t want to feel this way. I feel small and I feel like a fraud. I am hoping that after a meeting I have tomorrow there will be more clarity on how I should navigate and move forward. Today I want to put on my big boy shoes, but I feel very small and don’t like it.
I had to take a moment to find a scripture to help me combat this feeling of smallness/feeling inadequate. I found 3 verses from a blogpost by a new dad, that was feeling inadequate. While our circumstances are not quite the exact same, the verses he turned to did help me some and I am going to try to review them throughout the day to help me stay connected to my source of strength, when I feel weak.
The 3 verses are:
- 2 Corinthians 2:9-10
- Isaiah 40:30-31
- Phillipians 4:13
Thought of the Week: Turn to God in your weakest moments. Play “Total Praise” to help you connect to how he is the source of your strength.
