Do you ever just question everything? I do. Mainly about my job. I love designing, don’t get me wrong, but some days, I am just like aghhh! Why am I doing this job? Do people even like what I design? Does it encourage anyone or do anyone any good! These are the thought’s that often run through my head, maybe they do for you to.
Recently I was reminded of these verses in Colossians 3:23 – 24, ” Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving”.
Whatever you do, yes you, work at it with all your heart. Whether you are a stay at home mum, a nurse, a teacher, a cleaner, a bus driver, home help, shop assistant, designer, a full time granny. Whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God, doesn’t matter whether it pays you thousands or it pays you in hugs & kisses. Whatever you do, don’t worry about anything other than working at it with all your heart, as if the Lord was your boss. After all, our inheritance comes from Him and our reward will be found in heaven.
I often have to remind myself that God has us where we are for a purpose. Whether it’s to learn patience as you wait on the next job, or to sit with your child as he or she grows and learns, or do both, run a business and raise your child(ren). Or maybe it’s being a place of vulnerability & risk, serving God but relying on the support of others. So whether you are happy in your role, fed up & looking for another, or wondering what on earth am I doing, God has a purpose for it all. The bible says ‘His timing is perfect’, you’re in this position for a reason, ask God to help you learn and embrace whatever you are doing today! And also remember to work at it with all your heart!
