Then, God started being hella direct about what he wanted me to realize.
I've been practicing laziness.
So anything that God shared with me is what I am going to present to you.
The book of Proverbs gives us a description of the lazy person.
See, I've been making and practicing excuses for poor work ethic and not showing up.
Did you know that excuses can take another form?
Blaming others for your life not being all that it could be is totally an excuse that most people don't even realize they live daily.
The reality is we are called to walk in discipline and service to God. We are to work with diligence in all we do.
Stop blaming your home environment (my favorite excuse for not doing what I should be doing. Truth: I spend too much time on my phone).
Stop blaming your self-esteem (don't like the way you look? Eat healthier. Stop binge eating late at night)
Stop blaming the way someone is treating you ( Check your negative attitude at the door, bro).
Treating our work like an extension of our service to the Lord changes our attitude. Pleasing Him motivates us to do our best and inevitably results is the believer's contentment. A job may be challenging, frustrating, or boring but we can be at peace instead of wallowing in negative emotions.
Don't worry if your job isn't like walking the red carpet every day. No one's is. Faith is forever. Feelings are fickle. Faith has nothing to do with feelings. Go take a break. Close your eyes and pray your way through the rest of your shift and head back out there and do your best work as if every customer, client, or reader is Jesus in disguise because well, they truly are.
Feeling Down? Say This: I'm going to focus on the goodness of God in my life today. Whatever I may have lost is nothing compared to all I have gained in Christ.
So join me in catching yourself and all your lazy habits and telling them to hit the road.
Let's make the most of each and every day in order to give glory to God therfore HAVE FAITH and DO GOOD from the minute you wake up to the minute you fall asleep.
It's 2017 and there is already enough self-absorbed hurting people in this world. Let's be world changers, peace makers, and examples of God's GREAT love to all that we interact with.
This includes on social media. (Blog coming next week on that).
