"Please don't be despondent about the job change. Remember when one door closes another is opened. I hired you as receptionist when you couldn't even talk! Remember that? You're a special person and someone will recognize that just as I did. My prayers are with you."
I have thought about that job interview so many times over the years. I was so sick with bronchitis and laryngitis that I could not even speak at a whisper. I felt like an idiot trying to talk during the interview.... Straining with everything within me just to produce a squeak or a rasp. The job I applied for entailed answering the phone all day long and transferring calls to about a million different extensions. In addition, I also paged people over the intercom all-day-long. I ofter wondered why on earth he hired me to do a job he had no idea I could do. Apparently he saw worth in me that wasn't quite visible at the time.
YOU... ARE... NOT... WORTHLESS...
God sees what man cannot and you my friend are more valuable than gold.
