After we all had gathered in the conference room, the announcement was made that our jobs would be eliminated in a months time. You could almost hear the air being sucked out of the room. I think it would be safe to say most were stunned. I was surprised, but the thought of this being an elimination meeting did cross my mind....like I said, why else would you have a meeting off site?
Since I went PRN I was told that my status could change at any time, so it was as if the Lord had already prepared me for what was ahead. I have been working, but only a couple of days a week, but this isn't just about me, I have coworkers that have literally had the rug pulled out from under them. There was a multitude of emotions in that room and all I could feel was compassion.
The next couple of weeks will be difficult, there is still work that will need to be done, transitions that will be taking place. My one question, do I continue until the job goes away in a month or do I stop now, it really is my choice at the moment. Lots of things to consider, there is the people factor, relationships I have made and what my role is now in helping to support my coworkers...I do believe God has a plan and a purpose in all of this....maybe it was to get me moving...have I ever mentioned how I dislike change.
Lord you have assigned me my portion and my cup, you have made my lot secure. The boundary lines have fallen in pleasant places, surely I have a delightful inheritance Psalm 16:5-6
