I’d be lying if I say I do not dread the start of the work week. Sometimes, we get tired of the monotony and suffer a burn-out. The weekend seem to just went by so quick. The task that you have planned to do all the week, still hasn’t been done. Decluttering your office space, purging your closet, organizing your cupboards are some lists that has always been put aside.
The weekends usually are devoted to catching up on housework, running some errands and summer barbecues and leisure activities. We usually don’t decline impromptu party invites unless we have anything special planned which is very rare. It’s a great way to catch up friends that we only see once in a while. We are grateful that we have a small circle of friends that we had since we moved here about 15 years ago.
There are times when I feel like giving up, but I still try. I have been praying for God’s direction for a new job setting. It took months of job interviews without hearing anything. Finally, I got a job offer referred by one of our acquaintances. It was really unexpected and I am thrilled to finally get started. It was very challenging but in the end of the day it was rewarding that you get to learn new things and impart your skill.
Having a job is truly a blessing. We are able to sustain our family and use our talents that God entrusted us. We all have a job to perform, it could be a stay at home parent, it could be a freelancer, a laborer or a job in the medical field. As we fulfill our calling, no matter how hard it may be, remember to “Commit your work to the LORD and your plans will be established” (Proverbs 16:3) Thru our works, we are serving and honoring God, we leave the results in His Hands and our efforts will not be in vain.
