Room for error

I work with some incredibly tight tolerances at my place of employment, sometimes within .0002 of an inch. When you consider that a human hair measures only .003, then you can see that there is literally no room for error. It is rather nerve-wracking to know that even the slightest mistake can ruin an entire day’s work, so I find myself praying quite a bit.

Imagine living life as if there were no room for error, like every decision and choice could potentially destroy everything you’ve worked for. The stress alone would probably kill you.

Thankfully, we don’t have to live that way. God forgives us when we make mistakes and He loves us in spite of our many flaws. Knowing that gives me a sense of peace in an otherwise stressful world.

So I think I’ll try to approach life in the same manner that I perform my daily tasks. I’m going to keep concentrating on making the right choices, trusting in God’s forgiveness when I mess up, and praying… alot.

@ Darla: It’s not as bad as it sounds. Most errors can be fixed if we have enough time, but sometimes we are “under the gun” and messing up would mean that we miss ship dates, etc.

I don’t deal with stress very well. I get grouchy, exhausted, and depressed, and no one wants to be around me. ;)
