What Are You Working Towards?

21 Jun
Day in and day out we go to work. The way we feel about our 
jobs varies just a bit though. Some of us actually enjoy our
professions. For others, working is nothing more than a dire 
necessity which we really do not enjoy at all. Then there are 
those of us who are working with goals, dreams, and visions 
in mind. The question is, what are you working
towards?

You might be thinking, my job is so menial and degrading 
that I'm not proud of what I do. In fact I hate it. Therefore, 
I'm only working towards getting out of there every day, 
and paying the bills. Or, you may be thinking, the people 
that I work with make everyday one to forget. In either case, 
you should still have goals, dreams and visions to work
towards.

Your goal could be doing your part to make your environment 
at work more pleasant. You have the power to somehow 
make a difference every day in your place of work. Complain,
maintain, or change the environment. Broaden your vision. 
Open your eyes just a bit more and look for ways to use 
the power that you have to make your place of work a better 
environment. 

If you don't think that you have any power, you
are probably giving your power away to others by working in 
frustration. Instead of allowing others to dictate the outcome 
of your day, work towards reclaiming your power to enjoy 
each day! Be determined - "This is the day the Lord has
made, I will rejoice and be glad in it" (Psalm 118:24).

Remember to dream. Your dream could be of a better job 
some place else.  Or, you may dream of a promotion. 
You may even dream of retirement. What do you envision 
yourself doing next in the next five years? What are the 
steps that you need to take to get there? Now begin to
take those steps towards a better tomorrow.  But as you do
so, remember to continue to work towards enjoying today.

So, we have to work in order to take care of ourselves and
our families. Nevertheless, it's not all about the money. 
Each moment that you spend at work is equal to spending a
moment of your life. You won't ever see those moments 
again. Work towards enjoying today, while dreaming for
tomorrow.

The bible reveals the greatest secret to enjoying work.
Despite the challenges we may face each day. It simply
says, "And whatsoever you do, do it heartily as unto the 
Lord and not unto men, knowing that from the Lord you
will receive the reward of the inheritance; for
you serve the Lord Christ. (‭Colossians 3:23, 24).  
Set goals, dream again, and expand your vision. 
But do it all heartily as unto the Lord!
