RADIO PROGRAM NO. 312 - Overcoming That Trapped Feeling at Work

Questioner: Many people in the business world often feel trapped in their jobs. They don't want to quit, though, no matter how frustrated they feel. Is there anything they can do other than simply put up with the situation?

Speaker: Well, I know what you mean because I've been through a similar situation. But there is another alternative. The Bible is full of accounts of people who felt trapped in one way or another and did succeed in overcoming frustration. Take the children of Israel. After being slaves in Egypt they wandered in the wilderness and were hungry, thirsty, and discouraged. But the Psalmist tells us (Ps. 107:6), "They cried unto the Lord in their trouble, and he delivered them out of their distresses."

You know, St. Paul certainly found himself in frustrating conditions, and yet he said (Rom. 8:38, 39), "I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
