Life Passing By

Someone I work with says that life is too short to work at a job you don’t like.

I wonder: Is he onto something or is he just too naïve to know better? I really hate living my life waiting for the time I can leave the job and then dreading the time when I have to go back. It seems like there should be more to life than just that.

There was the one guy, many years ago, who really convicts me. I forgot his name, but he said that everything we do, we should do it for the glory of God. I guess I am a bit too self-centered for that. I just wish I could get to the point of realizing that I can offer my day up as a gift to God.

I guess I just get too ADD. I want the good stuff to happen NOW! But I guess what I forget is the good stuff IS happening now. As that country song says, “This is the good stuff.”

I have four days off. That will hopefully be enough to allow me to again approach the job with some excitement.

I recall 5 spokes in the wheel of mental health
One of them is "you like what you do".
My Godfather hopes that everything I/we do is always first for the glory of God. Not easy always.

Dr. B....thanks for stopping by my blog. So I have now gotten another reader from the midwest. Nice to see things mixed up a bit. Seems like we all have moments where we are selfish, self-centered. The trick truly is letting go and as you say "realizing that I can offer my day up as a gift to God." And I might add, offer it up to aid someone else perhaps.
