The prompt this week is: Work, GO!
Work is a "4 letter word". Ha ha, that popped into my head this morning, as I was pondering where this post would go. Sometimes work as in a job, or a workout for exercise is not so fun...something we have to do. It has a negative connotation.
There have been days that I just waded through the day at work, whether it was housework or work for pay and it felt like drudgery. As I was praying about how to make it better the Lord challenged me to look for daily blessings. ("God sightings" as my daughter tells her children at church.) Now, I don't remember to do it every day, but when I do, I have much better focus and people don't bug me as much.
I'm able to see the light in the darkness and the glory in the mundane.
I am also reminded of this verse in Colossians 3:23-24 (AMP)
"Whatever you do [whatever your task may be], work from the soul [that is, put in your very best effort], as [something done] for the Lord and not for men, 24 knowing [with all certainty] that it is from the Lord [not from men] that you will receive the inheritance which is your [greatest] reward. It is the Lord Christ whom you [actually] serve."
What was your God-sighting this week?
This post is part of Kate Motaung's "Five Minute Friday," which she hosts on the Five Minute Friday website. Kate posts a single word each week and each blogger sets a timer for 5 minutes to write and then posts, with very little editing. This is an exercise in the discipline of writing.
