We stayed

Some years ago, I was appointed executive president of a large corporation in which I was to oversee the design and construction of a copper smelter complex on the west coast of India. It was a $500 million (US) integrated grass-roots complex consisting of a port jetty (for unloading raw materials), and power, copper, and acid plants. I was also to oversee the construction of a residential colony. The entire project was scheduled for completion in 36 months. The work also included the recruitment and training of 850 people to operate the plants.

Before being appointed to this position, I had been on holiday for three months and was looking for work. I had left a job that was not working out, and I had begun to pray in earnest during this time to understand that God was my permanent and continuous employer. I was realizing that my real work was to express His qualities—and in that way to praise God. I had also been praying to better see that God not only gives talents to everyone, but He also provides opportunities to express those talents. in harmony and on schedule
