“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men.”Colossians 3: 23, N.I.V.
WOW! I needed this one. If you have read some of my posts you know I work at our family business. I am in Sales. Until December 8, 2008 it was me and my boss Steve. He passed away that day. Now it is just me in charge of 2000+ customers and ALL of North Texas. (We had it split in 2 regions before) This has been the most challenging 2 1/2 months of my working life. I am handling it well I think - but my attitude towards this job has totally changed as well. I came across this verse last night. I have read it hundreds of times. I even memorized it as a child. But last night it hit me in the head like a ton of bricks. I have totally changed my heart towards this job. I have a gift in sales, I love people, I love to problem-solve. I am good at what I do. I know that this job will change eventually. I know that I have more opportunities now than ever to grow in this business. So now instead of being negative and "poor me" I will "work at it will all of my heart, for the Lord and not men"
I pray that whatever your job is - yes that includes the stay at home mom's - (THE HARDEST JOB) do it with all of your heart for the Lord!
