I was hired in Davao Regional Hospital last April 6, 2015 in a regular, plantilla status. My position is Administrative Assistant II. Although my position and salary is not that much, I thank God that I have now a stable job in a government office. I prayed years for this, and it is now given to me.
I was assigned in the Admin Cashier’s Office and my job is somehow complicated and new to me. My undergraduate and graduate studies were all about Biology, my work experiences involved teaching Sciences for almost 9 years. So basically, I have no idea what my office mates are doing.
For a few days, they gave me some simple paperwork to accomplish. It was easy. Then later on, they gave me assignments like recording of the hospital’s income, deposits, accountability and many others. I was also able to transact to other offices like Accounting Office, Chief of Hospital’s Office and many others.
Of course, I am so serious with my job so during the first few days, I had headaches, migraine, confusion, tiredness and complains. I guess it was STRESS. I had a hard time coping up and adjusting my time. I had difficulty in balancing my time with work, business, ministry and family because when I get home, I was so tired I do not want to do anything more than to sleep.
Time has passed and I thanked God I was able to cope slowly. At the start, I was asking Him why He placed me in the Cashier’s Office, why this hard and complicated office, why this work that I have no single background. But little by little, He is beginning to reveal His purpose for me.
I love my job each day, especially my office mates who are very supportive. I am beginning to pick up the pieces and back to my old life. I am now having strength, energy and motivation to do all things I used to do. I know I have the potential and God will help me unleash my potentials. God placed me here to fulfill His works, to spread the Gospel and see Him through me in my life and works. I know God will work His ways for me that is why I am here and I thank God for everything.
