Integrity Moments - May 23, 2012


First Day Disaster
By: Rick Boxx
May 23, 2012

As a senior in college, my confidence in myself was high; then I graduated. My entry into public accounting, after graduation, shook my confidence to the core.

On my first day, I was two hours late to work, thanks to a snowstorm! I missed my ride to my first client engagement, my car broke down, and I learned I was incompetent!

King David’s confidence was in the Lord. In Psalm 27:3 he proclaimed, “Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then will I be confident.”

Having confidence in the Lord is a great way to begin a new stage of life. I wish I would’ve had that kind of confidence on my first day. Commit your day to the Lord!
