New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - May 17, 1996, New Braunfels, Texas ■ • ■ Ives of people forever crossin Pedestrian Crossing—Slow down and watch for people crossing your roadway. It was 5:30 p.m., April I. While walking from my new office (cubicle) to the parking garage I thought, “Maybe this is an April fool’s joke, and tomorrow I will be re-assigned to iriy old job, in my old office (with walls and a door).” The previous week, I had been given a surprise assignment to the bank’s Loan Review department. I wasn’t pleased, but was told that “considering future plans for reorganizing and down-sizing of the appraisal department, the temporary assignment was “a safe position.” I was thankful to have a job, but at the same time, I resented being told what to do without Any consideration of my opinions. My mental attitude flipped from gratitude to grumbling. I Several days passed while I succeeded in presenting an outward attitude of friendliness dnd professionalism. Inwardly, I continued to question God’s purpose for the change ... I grumbled at the interruption of new people “crossing my roadway.” I would hurry to work, Hurry through work, and hurry home after work. I wasn’t especially interested in becoming involved with a whole new set of “pedestrians.” I even wore ear plugs while I worked in my cubicle office (to help my concentration of course). On the weekend we were dining with some best friends, Barb and Barry. I was grumbling to Barry about my new work assignment and that I felt like “I had been unfairly sentenced to prison.” Barry looked at me with his compassionate grin and excitedly said, “Paul (die apostle) did his best work in prison. If he had not been there writing letters of encouragement to people and the churches, we would not have half of the New Testament. Look at the opportunity God has given you to minister to others. Paul was imprisoned AND chained to a prison guard 24 hours a day, yet he perceived his condition as the prison guard being chained to him. Instead of grumbling over his oppression, he grasped the opportunity to minister to a totally focused audience.” Immediately, my perspective changed from grumbling to gratitude. Instead of resenting the new pedestrians crossing my road, I realized the opportunity. God had assigned me to develop new relationships... to stop for the pedestrians in the crosswalk... to listen for the need... and respond to people, not reject them as an intrusion. That night I began praying for each “pedestrian” in the Loan Review Department. I didn't know their specific needs, so I prayed in general. I was excited for Monday to come so I could remove my earplugs and begin listening. I (still remember specific con-jcems: Jeffs choices as he moved up the corporate ladder, Lupe’s studies and exams, Vic’s health, Rob’s smoking habit, Jeffs new home, Vivian's moods, Cheryl’s mother’s illness, Yopie’s new home and her children, Pat’s decision-making process, Dan’s vacation time with his filmily, Mary’s move into a new home, Lisa’s wedding, Yupa’s husband’s illness, John’s vulgar vocabulary, Bob’s job security, and for my dear friend Mary Alice. The main pedestrian in the crosswalk was Marty Lindley Mary Alice. As we shared, God grew me. He opened my eyes to “the corporate attitude”... He reminded me to place people above politics. He taught me loyalty should be placed in the person, not the position. As I watched her struggle with being made to feel inadequate, I was reminded that regardless of what others say or do that might cause me to question my abilities — if God has placed me in a position, He has prepared me ... and will continue to provide His wisdom, knowledge and discernment. Regardless of other people’s plans, He can intercede to keep me in a position until it is His time for me to leave. As Paul states in Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.” Once Christ’s public ministry began, He was always “on His way" somewhere (ultimately to the cross), yet He always stopped for die pedestrians in His roadway. He recognized every opportunity for ministry. Sometimes, people didn’t even speak of their need, He just listened to their actions. He stopped to feed, to heal, to admonish, to encourage, and to forgive. He never ran over anyone, swerved to miss, or committed a hit-and-run. He never even hurried or blew His horn, yet He was always on time. What is your response when God places ’’pedestrians in your roadway”? How do you use the “crosswalk opportunities” God gives to you? Is your journey filled with victims of your actions of “hit-and-run” and “horn blowing” as you tush through life? Or, have you left behind travelers who have felt renewed and encouraged by your words? Slow down and watch for people crossing your roadway... the pedestrians God places in your journey.
