I have a job.
That’s something that 14.1 million Americans don’t have.
It’s one of the coolest jobs in the world and is said to be a harder job to get than admission to Stanford.
Yet something happened today that caused me to start rationalizing and complaining inside. I also fell into the sin of comparing myself with others and dwelling on thoughts of what my job can’t provide rather than the opportunities my new job my open up.
What ungrateful worm am I!
I needed greatly today to repent and to be grateful for the blessings that God has given me. All this is still very new and unusual for me, and in addition to my ingratitude, I’ve been eagerly praying
- That God would in His time reveal to me how my new job will fit in like puzzle pieces for my long-term career desires
- And much more importantly, how God can use me as a Christian in my workplace for His glory.
62. Resolved, never to do anything but duty; and then according to Eph. 6:6-8, do it willingly and cheerfully as unto the Lord, and not to man; “knowing that whatever good thing any man doth, the same shall he receive of the Lord. -Jonathan Edwards
