The car wouldn't start, so you arrived at work almost an hour late.
Your boss didn't buy your excuse for not finishing that urgent project.
And yet another unproductive, boring meeting broke up your workflow.
We all recognize it. In fact, a popular term describes it: "One of those days."
When you have one of those days as a believer in Christ, what should you do? Dr. Steve Greene has the answer, and he shares it on a recent episode of his At Work With God podcast on the Charisma Podcast Network. The former college dean and current publisher and executive vice president of the multimedia group at Charisma Media says he sometimes has one of those days too.
"I'm not any different than any of you," he says. "We all have hard days, and our faith gets challenged. Our entire way of thinking can be challenged."
But that doesn't mean we should give up, Greene cautions.
"And then we think about the hope that's within us," he adds. "And maybe the most important point about hope is that it's the seed of better faith."
And Greene adds, "I love that, because with hope, I'm going to feel that things are OK. With faith, I'm going to see it. Faith is 'the evidence of things not seen.' I don't see it, but faith sees it. ... And then to go with all that, love never fails, especially when you have a leader who leads with love as opposed to leading with fear. If you have a fear leader, you lose hope."
