"I really need prayer, please"

I'm going through a really difficult time with a work situation right now and am waiting on the Lord to show which the direction I should take.  I am very thankful for God's perfect peace that He is giving me during this time, and am praising Him for how much He has grown me in the last year.  I'm so glad He never gives up on me, no matter how much I mess up.

I had a meeting with my supervisor today and was made shockingly aware that my battle is not against flesh and blood. I had to challenge her on several things and she didn't like it at all, and even flat-out lied to me at one point.  I was able to remain respectful and calm, and I have God to thank for that, but if our meeting had any positive impact on her, it wasn't readily apparent.

I've been told that I should go next to Human Resources and plead my case, and I believe that I have good evidence to back up what I am claiming; however, the Lord may want me to drop it at this point, as it doesn't hurt anyone but me directly.  

Please pray that I will keep a sweet spirit, that I will wait upon the Lord and obey Him in everything, and represent Him well, especially when I am hard-pressed.

Thanks so much, all of you.  You bless me every single day, and I CAN'T WAIT to meet you all!
