Work like You're Working for Jesus!

Colossians 3:23 ESV

Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men,

So, how many people just love getting up and going to work?? The same routine day in and day out of getting up early, getting home late, having to deal with ornery people, and unappreciative bosses can get old and very redundant. It can be hard to keep a good attitude!! Up until 2 weeks ago (when God blessed me with a new job),  this is how I felt every single day!!!! I was completely miserable! But then one day, my husband who has a very good but very stressful job came home and said something that totally changed my outlook on work! 

It's something I wish I would have thought about weeks ago!!!!! He said that there's no use in going to work and being miserable, just because everyone else there is! He said he was going to start going in and having a better attitude despite how he felt about being there! He said he wasn't going to let his coworkers bad attitudes affect his attitude anymore!! This really made me think!!  We are supposed to work everyday as if we are working for The Lord!! We should go in with a good attitude that is pleasing to God and would make him proud!! We may be the only light of Jesus that the people at our jobs see!!! 

I know that the different kinds of work environments can make this a little different, because some people are just mean and they try to make your life miserable! I've been there too!!! But God has you where you are for a reason!! He is not going to lead you in to a place and just abandon you there to fend for yourself!! He is there with you!!! Think of it as a mission field!!! Let your light shine and win souls for Jesus!!!

  2. Yes, due to my wonderful prayer partners who attend Awakening Life Church (you know who you are!) I started my new work place with a great attitude!!! Can't lie and say that somedays are'nt horrible but these days everyone should be thankful that they have a job!!! Truth is; no one can make you unhappy but you and no one can ever take my Jesus away :) Pamela Britt Malone
