Been working OT for the past few months now, it is mandatory, its just too much at times, really been praying for a good change, im thankful for my job and feel blessed, but feeling my well is dried up, so to speak, need a change soon, been praying and seems my life is feeling stagnant, I need Gods intervention, hard to do things in my own strength anymore.

Blessings,
Desi

Guys let's pray together about this work stress thing. I have worked every public holiday and an average of one to two weekends a month (in various ways, like call out's etc), since the 15th December 2011. I worked Christmas day and new years day (eve), and have had 17 days off in a year. My days vary from early morning to sometimes late at night. I am working right through the Christmas holiday period again (in a very stressful environment)

But He is my rock. So pray this with me.

Lord Jesus, you are my rock and my foundation. On your promise I stand. I pray for strength and endurance. I pray that you make straight the path I must walk. Remove the stumbling blocks, open the doors that should be opened, and close those that should be closed. I pray You fill in my valleys and make flat my mountains. I pray You soak me in Your living, spiritual, strength giving, healing waters.

I rest in You and You alone. Amen.

I think its really important to maintain a work life balance. I was in your situation for a long time and its now that I have changed jobs I sit back and I think wow - I actually lost years out of my life due to over committing to a job. More importantly always include a positive source in your lifestyle. Working long hours can make you a little depressed at times.

I'm praying for you. I'm in a similar situation. Lots of mandatory OT, so little time. I have the added guilt of understanding that the reason employers exploit us with this mandatory OT is so they can avoid hiring more people. We are a nation where more than 10% of adults have no job and another 15% are underemployed, yet those of us who are "fortunate" enough to have a good job have to do the work of several in the name of profit for a small few. How did we get this way? Computers and automation was supposed to make life easier, but all it did was to concentrate the work in a smaller number of employees.

You're not alone. Make sure you take time to relax. I take a nice bubble bath every Saturday and soak for at least an hour. Saturday mornings are my pampering time. :)

Working too much can stress one out as quick as anything else. We all need down time. Too many people pack their schedules too full during the holiday season. Try to cut back and take some time for yourself.
