Empathy and understanding

I was a bit down yesterday after reading a report from the consultant we hired to investigate a certain problem we have in our company. The report did not actually did not write about the problem itself but suggested that there are quite a bit of negativity in our company and improvement of culture is necessary. Also included negativity about my actions and areas of improvement.

There are some truths about it. Yes we need to improve. But also were some misunderstandings and not too good surprises which bothered me.

But I had trusted friends who I can discuss, put things in perspective, get advice and pray together. I believe in God’s word that assures me that “And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.”

What a blessing it is to have faith. What a blessing it is to have friends who can speak into me. What a blessing it is to have an understanding spouse! How wonderful is God’s promise!

I just need to learn as much as I can from this incident and report, keep moving forward. I feel blessed and as I was talking to a lady who recently lost her husband, I felt like I had more compassionate heart than before. We need to experience hurt. Not everything is pleasant but God can and will make everything work for the good for those who love Him.

I am blessed.
