 Carol's Journey

My Stronghold

Lord, You are my stronghold
As in the Old Testament told
Cities of refuge provided safety
From all attacks by the enemy

My rock and light of my salvation
Only hope of eternal redemption
Mighty God, shield and deliverer
My Shepherd and divine counselor

When the storms of life threaten
Of this truth my heart is certain
Nothing can take away Your love
I am guided by Your hand above

Ten years ago on this September day
My mom entered her home in eternity
You welcomed her with wide open arms
Her body now whole from its painful form

Two years after my Mom went home to glory
You prepared and revealed Your gift of poetry
I miss her, but You make my life worthwhile
You can use me to encourage others in trials

When my full time job ended over two years ago
Only You knew where my career path would go
No work over a year then You opened up the door
For this long temp job in ways I never seen before

While it has not been easy, You faithfully provide
From three to five day shift and hours added beside
More training then cut backs and restored schedules
Physical accident six weeks ago with its own changes

Today at temp job three meetings held one per shift
Puerto Rico bank now partly outsourced the main gist
Work load shared between current staff and outsourcing
Less help will be needed for daily deadlines approaching

Branch manager wanted to clear up rumors encircling
This is not a total takeover yet with layoffs threatening
Another meeting would be held first to keep us informed
He said it will help free people in other areas to be trained
