Gaining Some Confidence in Detroit

A little over a month ago, I got promoted from a Secretarial Assistant to Billing Specialist.
You can read how it all happened HERE

Last week I traveled to Detroit to train for my new position.
It was one busy week of non-stop training and missing my husband dearly. 
This was the first time I had ever been away from him for more than one day. I didn't like it one bit!

In the midst of all the training and wishing I was with my husband, the past week really gave me some time to spend with God and reflect on my life and the many happenings and blessings that are occurring from day to day.

 I think its so amazing and wonderful how the scriptures are like a road map to our lives. All of the many questions and concerns that we have about our lives are all in the scriptures and there is literally an answer to every question that we have. What a blessing!

On Wednesday after work, I went back to my hotel and ordered in room service. 

I had been really discouraged earlier that day about my new job. There is just SO much to learn!

I kept thinking to myself 
"How am I ever going to get this down?"
"What did I get myself into?"

That night as I was reading the scriptures, the words jumped off the pages and God brought peace, assurance and comfort to my heart. 

I was reading the Book of Mormon in 1 Nephi Chapter 17. 

Nephi is commanded to build a ship and is feeling a little discouraged because he thinks that he can't. His older brothers murmur against him, call him a fool and mock him because he thinks he can build a ship.

In verse 50 & 51, it says:

  "And I said unto them: if God had commanded me to do all things I can do them. If he should command me that I should say unto this water, be thou earth, it should be earth; and if I should say it, it would be done"

 And now, if the Lord has such great power, and has wrought so many miracles among the children of men, how is it that he cannot instruct me, that I should build a ship?

We are supposed to liken the scriptures to our lives and they are for our profit and learning.
After reading these two verses, I now have the confidence and surety that I CAN perform this job and perform it well! 

If God blessed me with this promotion and brought me to it, He WILL bring me through it!
I am going to press forward with confidence in myself, in God and try my very hardest.

The Lord knows exactly what He is doing and His timing is perfect. 

I am so grateful for a wonderful God and His many blessings.
