How to not hate your job

how to not hate your job - Godly Woman 911I love my job!

But with every job there are just situations (usually office politics) or colleagues that drive you insane.

Some of you may be doing a job that is boring and mundane, little pay, horrible work times, new bosses … And the list can go on.

We may all have some reason why we really don’t like our job.

In my bible study tonight the verse in Colossians 3:23 really hit home for me. “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters,”

 Boy, that isn’t an easy one is it.

But the key to this verse is that instead of us trying to please our boss, our colleagues and maybe even ourselves, we need to do our jobs as if we were trying to please God.

As a Christian, that really hits home for me. The bible warns us against having two masters.

I am such a boss pleaser!

If my boss isn’t happy I start feeling anxious and even sometimes frustrated without even knowing what’s going on. I hate it when they aren’t happy. But I learnt the very long and hard way that I can’t please them as well as please God.

And I won’t find joy in my work or excited to even wake up for work until I recognize my true purpose – to do whatever work I do to please God and not man.

Food for thought: Are you struggling to serve two masters? Choose God today.

Prayer: Father of peace, joy and love. Forgive us when we choose to serve and please the world instead of choosing you. May we store within our hearts Proverbs 3:5-7

Trust in the Lord with all your heart
    and lean not on your own understanding;
 in all your ways submit to him,
    and he will make your paths straight.

 Do not be wise in your own eyes;
    fear the Lord and shun evil.

Amen

 

God’s grace, mercy and peace be with you.

I became a Christian at a young age and baptized at the age of 13. My journey has been bittersweet. A majority of my life I have been a Christian. But not a Godly Woman. After many failures, tears and tribulation I realized that something in my Christian life had to change. No longer can I profess that I am a Christian but don’t show daily that Christ lives in me! No longer can I claim that I am HIS child when my thoughts, actions and deeds were not overflowing with HIS love. No longer could I live the way I was living and not seek him daily in prayer, scripture and worship. As the Lord blessed me with that knowledge I felt him also calling me to write my journey and share my thoughts, learning and mistakes with others. Hence the reason for 911. Not only was it a crises in my life to become a Godly Woman but as I delved into scripture to understand how to be Godly, I realized that we are living in crazy world where the desire to be Godly was no longer important. Many boast that they are a Christian and weekly attend Church, but lack the Godly qualities that Christ seeks in ALL of his followers. My deepest desire is to serve Christ faithfully, obey HIM joyfully, trust HIM always, seek HIM eternally and become his close friend so that I can share in his truth and knowledge. I pray that this blog blesses you and provide you with the strength, courage and wisdom to be a Godly Man or Woman.
