I found myself in a situation the other day that I didn't want to be in. I'm not going to go into a lot of detail, but I will say that I didn't know what to do because I didn't want my career to override my beliefs, but at the same time, I'm a fair-minded person. It was a question of the ultimate right. Do I support a person's freedom to think for themselves, even when they may end up choosing to believe something different from what I believe? Free agency is one of our most priceless possessions. A war was fought in Heaven so that we might have the ability to choose. Christ died for us so that we might choose to repent and be forgiven. I mulled over the consequences for a while, prayed about it, and decided to proceed. I had to trust that God would make it all turn out okay, and He did. I'm breathing a sigh of relief right now. I was able to maintain my professionalism without sacrificing my beliefs.
And thanks for letting me share, even if I didn't share a whole lot. I feel better now.
