Why I have loved every job I ever held

Updated on July 16, 2017

Customer Service Personnel

Celebrating a Customer Service Job


My wonderful Job

Thank you Lord for my Job

It is not an evil I have to endure daily

It is a blessing that pushes me further:


Thank you Lord for the problems I encounter

They are not pitfalls that sink me deeper

They are challenges on which I ride to the top.


Thank you Lord for all the difficult customers

They teach me how to exercise my love and patience

They are the reason why I have my job.


Thank you Lord for all kinds of bosses

Without them the vision of the company would be dim

Without them my aspirations would be less.


Thank you Lord of the long hours I spend here

I fill each one of them with meaningful work

For every task done the day grows shorter.


Thank you Lord for my job

Many would like to have it

So I work hard to make it interesting

So that when I move up someone else will enjoy it more than I did when I got it.


Thank you Lord for my job

It’s a source of income that feeds and clothes

and entertains me and my family,

It’s God’s gift to me on this earth

And I know that daily I have to fight the devil to keep it.


Thank you Lord for my job

It is truly wonderful no matter what others think

I am the one tasked to do and keep it,

How unique and what an honor that

Of the billions that dwell in the earth,

It is I who has it!

      I love it, DonnaIsabella! Your prayer-poem to the Lord has lift my spirits again to put hope in finding a job soon. I seem not to get anything yet. I feel sad and coming across other people's hubs puts a smile on my face. Hope the Lord hears me. I know He will be listening.

      I wish that you have put your photo up there instead. *Smile* I love you and your hubs!
