Faith at Work
Did you know God cares about your work and your career? Did you know he wants to use you through the work you do?
God cares about your work because he cares about you! You were perfectly designed and made for a purpose that only you can fulfill on this earth. God desires for the work you do to bring glory and honor to him in the same way that say a prayer does or helping a neighbor. In fact, your work is ministry and your work is a demonstration of the character of God to the world around you. When you are feeling overwhelmed by the rat race of business, take a step back and refocus by remembering you were appointed by God to the position you hold. The question now becomes, what will you do with this call and position? How will you allow God’s presence to be made manifest in your work life?
I tried to live my life with faith and work separate, and the more I tried to live that way, the more I felt like an impostor. I did not feel like I could bring my “whole self” into a staff meeting, or budget review or strategy session. Now I can see my faith and my work not only co-exist, I really cannot be the best boss, co-worker, staff person if I leave my faith in the parking lot. My faith affects everything. If you struggle to see this, I pray that these blogs will illuminate to you the great opportunity God is presenting to you to take your faith to work.
God is in everything. And lessons about how we relate to Him and how he relates to us are able to be uncovered in all sorts of places. God met me at the beach a few days ago. He met me as I watch a sandpiper scurry around, looking lost, yet trying to catch up. I resonated with the sandpiper. I resonated because I am in constant catch up mode. And it has gotten exhausting. Read and discover what God has taught me about playing catch up through the sandpiper.
I’ve spent a lot of my life running. Running from what I heard God asking me to do. Why? I didn’t have the courage to let go of control and trust that He knew best for me. I wanted to do things my way. I wanted to play it safe. But I missed out on how God could use me with a surrendered heart and life.
