This past week, I have been thinking a lot about why I love doing what I do so very much. What I have discovered is that it is not just because of my love of helping people as much as it is using my God-given talents to do things the way He wants me to.
You see, I have learned that it is truly better to do things the right way…not for the approval of others…but as if I am working for God. When I work, I work with all of my heart and I know that He is working through me. He has to be. I can feel it with every ounce of my soul.
Kahlil Gibran got it right in The Prophet when he said, “And all work is empty save when there is love; and when you work with love, you bind yourself to yourself, and to one another, and to God.” and, “Work is love made visible.”
When you work just for money, you are missing out on so so much. You see, there is great joy to be had when you shift your focus…your why. When you put Love into what you do – everything you do- things change. Things won’t seem like a chore or a hardship any more. You have the greatest boss in all of the universe.
Right now, there are so many things that seem like they are out of control.Your sense of routine has probably been thrown out the window. The volatile world that we live in has caused some of us to feel uncertain…and then the uncertainty has created insecurity within us. It is super easy to lose focus right now, I know.
When we are shaken out of our comfort zones, it becomes even more important that we stop and look up. Acknowledge that you need Him and take ahold of His hand and grip tightly. Let Him be your Rock. Laser focus your efforts in everything that you do and every way that you do it for Him…and see what happens.
You will be transformed from the inside-out. Your perspective will change and you will realize that when you do things – all things – out of love, they will never be a chore. When you have a challenge, acknowledge it an accept it…and then put your heart out on what is in front of you. Do things the right way and do them with all of your heart.
