Where Do I Belong? Oh Lord help me

I have been at my present position for 14 months. I always thought and was told I did a good job. The owner has hired a new Office Administrator with 22 years experience and in the one week and two days she has been in the office she has totally turned everything upside down. She is now after me. It is apparant that she is finding fault in everything I say and do so as to make me quit. She has never said one positive thing to me or about my work, only negative. My self esteem and worthiness is going to the bottom and she calls it my own insecurities. I have been applying for jobs even before she came in, to no avail. The market is so tough. I know my days are numbered but I have to work. I am old and alone with no friends or family to lean on or talk to for support. I keep trying to remember that when God closes a door He opens a window. I am truly not upset if this door closes, my lack of faith is what do I do when it shuts. The Lord has always taken care of me and in my heart I know he will again, but it is my head. I ask that anyone who reads this will keep me in their prayers for my head to staighten up and listen to my heart and the Lord. A job “Where I Belong” would be nice, too. Thanks.

  1. Im the same as you

    I have had to end many jobs in my life. I found out that after I lost the jobs it was hardest to live in the in between times waiting for answers. So by praying constantly and giving God the hardest problems I have I then have time to work on some things I can try changing. Its hardest for me to wait for things to happen and to be patient because like you my mind thinks up the past mistakes and losses and gets caught up in looking at who liked me and more than that who didn’t. It is always easiest to criticize myself and not be aware of any of the good things that might possibly have some truth to them. Find a reason to show yourself you have moved on. Keep believing in the Lord.

  2. Have faith

    It seems like you already thought you’d have to move on before the office manager was hired? Maybe you want to get another job. God will provide. Keep giving it over to him,

  3. Betough for God was not weak

    Be strong and have faith don’t let the voices win. And your right if this is happening, it also will pass, for you must always remember money does not buy happiness and if you fall behind you wont be behind for ever for the lord will take care of you.

    Good luck

    It is my hope that you read this. Continue to be the best blessing that you are. The peace, skill and experience that you lend to your company is irreplaceable. Remember that it is a loan. Trust the path that you are on, and do what you do thereby allowing the new person to do what they do. Benefit/learn from the available source grow and simply just be. Pray that you can be still in your heart, steady in your hand. My best to you, please pray that employment finds me within the next few months as there is no sub stainable sources for my little family, rent is due and I no longer have clothing that fits or is professional enough to interview or work in thank you

  6. Where do I belong..

    Hello,
    I read your prayer and can sympathize where you are coming from. I too am in a job that is tentative at best. I know that some of the reasons I feel like I could lose this job are my own fault, and by the grace of God, I’m trying to overcome them. But I feel like I’m on shaky ground now and at any time the hammer could come down. I live alone with family very far away. I can’t afford to lose this job. I keep praying for faith to believe that God is in my corner and that He will ultimately provide the best that is possible for me. By helping me to realize my own mistakes, He has already helped me. But I still feel worried in spite of my heart telling me that God is in control. It’s so hard to have faith when you feel like your world could fall apart at any moment. But I still pray, and still believe, that God will “open the door” no matter how poor my faith is. He sees beyond our doubts. Continue to pray and in spite of what the outside world is telling you, believe. I pray that God’s peace fill your heart and that your prayers are answered soon, Even when it’s hard to have faith, keep trying. No prayer goes unanswered.
