Lately, my boss has been griping alllloooott about her boss.
She is without a doubt stressed out, has all rights to gripe on how she’s feeling and treated but the issue comes in when I join in the griping party.
The first time I found myself at this “function”, the Holy Spirit put a check in my spirit and convicted me that I was wrong. After all, I’m a professed Christian and my boss is not. Furthermore, I aim to let my light shine so that others (the ones I work with especially) can see the light and it can invite them to Christ.
Unfortunately, I didn’t allow the check to deter me from joining on the bandwagon. In fact, today I spearheaded the campaign, much to my utter shame (I’m sure Jesus hung His head too). My boss upon hearing me said “Lord, please put a bridle on Deandra’s tongue.” Talk about conviction to the higher degree.
Now tonight as I get ready to unwind and go to bed, my devotional left me this quote “Check your heart and watch your mouth” AND Romans 13:1-2. Talk about the Holy Spirit saying “I’m not done dealing with you Hurst, you need to get this message through your skull.”
