As I reflect over my first week of work I know the one and only reason it went well was because God was at my side.It was so very obvious to me as I worked he was beside me.I felt very calm, I felt a peace within me that I never thought could be there at the start of a new job.
It made me think of how empty the life's of those are who do not have our Heavenly Father walking with them.I often wish there were a way we could let them know what they are missing out on. (OK there is a way, however I am not one to comfortably share my walk in faith with non believers.
I am very luck to belong to a church that has very strong prayer worriers.I know and was also told by many of their prayers for me. What a wonderful feeling knowing that others are praying for me.
I have found through blogging as well that it is a wonderful chance to be asking for prayers as well.
Now lets think about this.Lets say I have a major prayer request I pass it along to my blogger pals. They in turn pass it along to there blogging pals and friends at church or where ever. And so it goes. Soon we could have hundreds if not thousands of prayers out there for us. What could be better then to know we have many many people praying for us throughout the world.
My challenge to all of you is to not be afraid and to use this network to ask for prayers for our self or family.
And remember there are never dumb or crazy prayer requests. In Gods eyes all our prayers are important.
I will start by asking for continued prayer for my new job. That I may catch on and remember all that is being thrown at me. Also that I may remain calm and not have a feeling of failure and not being able to learn it.
I hope this will work!!!!

I will pray for you Mr. Brian. I will also do a prayer post for you tomorrow.
I wanted you to know since you were concerned that Loraena and Josh did not get the twins.

I agree with your observation that no matter that concerns us is ever too trivial to bring before the Lord. And I think our prayers accomplish so much MORE than we will ever be able to comprehend in this life.

I'm glad your job is going well!

You are not giving yourself NEARLY enough credit. Dialysis takes a long time to sink in. It will be a good six weeks before it even makes sense and you can notice things out of place, etc. You will feel comfortable setting up machines after a week or two and the theory will sink in later. I am a dialysis nurse and haven't worked in dialysis for the past 6 years. I know I could jump back in and feel comfortable in no time. I miss it so much and can't wait because they may build a satellite unit near me soon. I will be the first in line at the door! I LOVE IT! Email with questions if you want. I'll be thinking of you and praying for you.
