There were times when I felt that my situation was terribly unfair and unjust. Yet these bouts of bitterness were often quickly overshadowed by the knowledge that God, as the righteous Judge, sees the work of my hands and my heart before Him. This spurred me to continue doing my best at work, in full faith and assurance that He is always with me.
Learning to trust God in the face of injustice has freed me from the burden of withholding forgiveness, bearing grudges, and seeking vengeance. Instead, His Word teaches me to choose what is better: to please my Heavenly Father, to give thanks to Him, and to find joy in life and labor—regardless of who my human supervisor is (Ecclesiastes 3:22).
