Have you ever wondered why you work where you work? Why you do what you do? Why you chose your profession?
Well nothing is never done without God’s approval.
Life tends to direct us in ways that aren’t always pleasant and can be very trying. Going to work everyday, dealing with work issues and then coming home to deal with family life can really add to your stress levels.
I’m here to reassure you that everything you are going through is not by accident, you are suppose to be at this very place, at this very time, however there are ways to make your outlook on life better. IT’S ALL ABOUT HOW YOU THINK.
Have you ever been fed up with your job, felt unappreciated, maybe even felt like your boss or supervisor doesn’t care. Are you constantly complaining about what is wrong all the time? Do you even remember why you started working in the first place. I know for me, it took a life altering event to make me realize the importance of a job. I guess I had the attitude of I’m good at what I do and I knew I could be replaced, however I didn’t actually think that I would be replaced.
If you’ve read my previous blog post, you’ve read how I was unemployed and continued to pray for a new job and how God came through for me. Believe me, I’ve prayed! However this new job had given me a different outlook on how I view my job. I AM the only person that can control how I think about my job, my life, and my decisions.
Having a job is very important, not just for money, but to be able interact with others, to help others and to have a chance to spread God’s word to others. Keep in mind that you aren’t just working….YOU ARE WORKING FOR GOD!
If you’re having trouble with deciding if this job is for you or what you’re suppose to do in life. PRAY ABOUT IT! Ask God what exactly he wants you to do for him. Ask him how he can use you today. Everyday pray about it! And then pray more.
