Good post Nick. Sadly many people are out there who do not no or reject God's word. I have started my first job as a truck driver, delivering asphalt, just before Christmas. Being new in the industry, I made some minor mistakes like not positioning the truck correctly. Understanding what's been said over the radio is a bit difficult for me too, so I missed or miss understood instruction by the site manager or stopper. Even I told that guy that this is only my third day on the job, he didn't fell short of shouting and verbally abusing me over the radio, embarrassing me in front of all other truck drivers and workers. I was sitting in my truck scared to ask him to repeat his instruction when I couldn't clearly understand it over the radio. I only wanted to do things right and not to stuff up. Unfortunately he took my self confidence and things got worse, me loosing concentration making more mistakes. I felt like just taking off and get out of there. I was so glad when my day was over. I didn't complain about the way he was talking to me because it was only my third day on the job. So I just tried to swallow it all and kept quiet. I ended up complaining about this guy to my boss and found out that he was well known for his behavior and he had complaints before. Obviously this guy doesn't know God or the bible. However I haven't worked since Christmas because of the holiday break and the rain. To be honest, I don't really want to go back, I am worried to stuff up again and to ask people over the radio to please repeat what they said if I can't understand them. All because of one idiot who doesn't know how to respect people. Asking God for courage to go back when work resumes is part of my daily prayers. I hope that I will never see this guy again. God has helped me and guided me through a tough 2014 and I am sure that my Creator will sort this out for me too. Just thought of sharing this story, it might help me to get over it. May God bless all of you blokes for 2015. Thanks for reading my post.
Love U all,
