“…Why is he getting ahead, and I’m not….?”

Why is he getting ahead, and I’m not?  Have you ever wondered why Joe’s getting the promotions, and you’re not?  Why Sally got a big raise, and you didn’t?  Why Roscoe got the big transfer?  How can Jim afford both a new house and a ski-boat at the same time?  Why?  There are many reasons…some worthy, most are not.  It’s said, some sleep their way to the top, some drink their way, others conned their way, and some blackmailed their way.  Most, however, earn their way to the top. The bad guy brags about how he got there, and the hard worker is too busy Sampleworking to get into the fray.  Back to the guy who cheats his way up the ladder.  This guy is destined to fail, and when he falls, he’ll fall HARD.  Exceptions?  Sure, there’s always the lucky one who will slip through the crack, but eventually he, too, will get busted; either by early retirement, or some kind of parachute opportunity…but they will find a way to get rid of the rascal. Remember:  NOTHING replaces practical experience, and the will to win. With all that said; people like this…99% of the time, end up paying the price for their miss-deeds. A few find conversion, and do their best to make up for the wrongs they did to others; who were more deserving of the opportunity.  The good guy ultimately wins because God has his number, and reserves a special place in Heaven for him.  3 John 2: “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health even as thy soul prospers.”  It is God’s will to prosper our endeavor. If the devil makes you to believe that children of God don’t proper, reject what he is saying to you. It is not correct. A child of God who diligently and honestly works will receive the blessings of the Lord. Blessings…cjlb… 9/29/13
