Are you a fair weathered friend? One who bails when you are needed? People do not mean to be fair weathered friends. Fear sets in with thoughts of what if someone knows I am their friend? Judgement & concern sets in. I am in a hostile environment where I just joined a company that has been in a dispute that has nothing to do with my skills nor what is happening with the contract. I came into this oblivious. When I was recruited this was not disclosed.
The company I am contracted too had no respect for me from day one. There is no one to share with how I pray for God’s outcome! People who acted like they were my friends but was working behind the scene to get my company fired. Then they act like they care.
It is hard to here in a meeting praise be given to the company representative and nothing for the hard work that I have put into to correct the concerns my company did not resolve prior to me joining the team! Being proactive and professional is all I can do. I am the enemy.
Our company stopped communicating with us six weeks ago! So we were told yesterday we need to apply for jobs with them because they will not allow us to stay! Everyone smiles at you but no one cares what happens to me or my family! Fair weathered friends they are not. All I can do is represent my real boss!
God! My God will work things out.
Matthew 7:15-20 English Standard Version (ESV)
A Tree and Its Fruit
15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. 16 You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles? 17 So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. 18 A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Thus you will recognize them by their fruits.
In times of trials, there is always the fair weathered friends, who will be really just bad fruit. So even when you are being ridiculed and treated poorly, Stand strong in Gods word and behaviors. I continue to serve God. He is my true friend thru all weather!
