“Keep on Trusting God”– A devotion by Ann Elaine Broughton

Have you ever heard the saying; “When the going gets tough, the tough get going”?

“Trust is the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding: in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight” (Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV).

 

Have you ever heard the saying; “When the going gets tough, the tough get going”? As Christians there will be times in our lives when indeed the going gets tough. We are not exempt from illness, misfortune, tragedy, or sorrow. But how we handle these situations can be a witness to others who do not have our hope. How do you get going when the going is tough? Let me give you some encouraging thoughts on this subject.

broughton trust-in-the-lord-proverbs-3-5-6

The first thing during a time of crisis is to pray and ask others to pray for you. Tell God about everything and pour out your heart to him. Jesus was in a crisis in the garden when He went to pray before his crucifixion. He asked his friends to pray also. He asked God to take the cup away from him, meaning his approaching death, but then He said to God, “Yet not as I will, but as you will” (Matthew 26:39 NIV). We should always pray that God’s will be done in any situation just like Jesus did. Then we need to trust Him with the answer, knowing that His will is best.

 

Second, stay calm. I know that this is very difficult, because the very word crisis brings about terror in your soul. But staying calm can happen if you trust God to give you the strength you will need for this time of upheaval in your life. There have been times in my life that God’s peace filled me when otherwise I would have totally lost control of my emotions. I promise that in difficult situations if you trust God and pray, He will give you the strength and peace to meet your difficulty in a calm manner.

 

Finally, keep on trusting that God has this situation in His hands. He knows the outcome, and He can make everything good. “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28 NIV).

Dear Lord,

We know that life is filled with unpredictable circumstances that are out of our control. Help us to believe that you are with us and will give us the strength and peace to handle these situations in a way that is a good witness to others.

In Jesus’ name,

Amen

CSX to Consolidate Operating Divisions

As CSX continues to match its network resources to business demand and drive additional efficiency, the company announced today that it is consolidating its operations administration from 10 divisions to 9 divisions and closing administrative offices at Huntington, West Virginia.

As CSX continues to match its network resources to business demand and drive additional efficiency, the company announced today that it is consolidating its operations administration from 10 divisions  to 9 divisions and closing administrative offices at Huntington, West Virginia. Huntington Division administrative responsibilities will be reassigned to five adjoining divisions: Atlanta, Baltimore, Florence, Great Lakes and Louisville.

CSX will continue to run trains over the territory, and its yards and other facilities in the Huntington region – including the Huntington locomotive shop – will continue operations. The company remains committed to the Huntington community, which has played a vital role in railroading and American commerce since its namesake Collis P. Huntington completed the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway in 1873.

The 121 management and union employees who currently report to the Huntington Division offices will remain employed in the area supporting the transition of administrative responsibilities over the next several months. At the conclusion of the transition period, the timing of which may vary by role, many employees will be given an opportunity to fill positions in other areas of the network.

Primarily serving customers in West Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee and Ohio, the Huntington territory encompasses the Central Appalachian coal fields, which have been significantly affected by low natural gas prices and regulatory actions. Over the past four years alone, CSX’s coal revenues have declined $1.4 billion. Today’s announcement is part of CSX’s focus on reducing structural costs and aligning resources with demand in its coal fields, and follows the reduction of train operations at Erwin, Tennessee and the closing of mechanical shops at Corbin, Kentucky.

CSX remains firmly committed to providing safe, reliable rail service to customers throughout the region. CSX maintains more than 2,000 miles of track in West Virginia and handled more than 1.7 million carloads of freight in the state in 2014.
