Do you want to go to work today?
No, in general I’d rather sleep in and do something that I want to do.
Some days I love my job and some days I hate my job. What I have realized is that my job really does not change as much as I do. As I get older, I can tell when my body is hurting, when I am sad, etc. When I was a kid I don’t think I really thought much about it. Maybe because I did not go through so much when I was young.
On the other hand, I have noticed that if I am getting sour or rude I do not realize it until someone tells me. When they tell me, sometimes I react in a negative way and other times I try to see how I can improve. Getting older does not help this at all.
What I am getting at is this, today is a new day and I want to stay focused on doing my work with a happy attitude no matter how I feel or how intense the job gets. I know that if my job was what I loved to do, I would still know that I am changing and that some days I would prefer just relaxing rather than getting up, drinking coffee and heading off to work.
I asked myself how can I seek God no matter what is going on in my life. As I was reading the Bible I came up on this passage:
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 (NIV)
Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality. Romans 12:11-13 (NIV)
Knowing that Jesus told us things that would give us peace in a world of trouble just makes me want to hear more of what He said. He overcame the world and I know that I can if I seek Him.
Do you seek Jesus Christ? Are you willing to make Him your core? Does Jesus make a difference in your life? Are you willing to go to work everyday and take Jesus with you? Not the ‘pushy judgmental can’t see who yourself is Jesus’ but the’ loving kind overcomer of the world Jesus’. Are you practicing hospitality?Do You Really Believe? Questions, Share, Email, Facebook
