The Lord keeps taking me to the Dung Gate in Nehemiah – not only about the importance of removing things and people out of my life that shouldn’t be there but also focusing on the gate keeper. He had a job to do – it wasn’t a lavish job but it was just as important as the other gate keepers.
Had he not taken his job seriously then an attack would be imminent.
Am I doing all that I can do with the calling on my life?
I struggle with comparison and discontentment badly.
But God, He is gracious to reel me back in and gently whispers, “Go for the one I put in your path daily. That’s your job. Show kindness. Show love. Be an encourager. Show women their worth. Show them they are valuable. Touch the lives I put in your path daily. “
So regardless your job, whether you are the CEO of a major corporation or janitor that is taking out the trash and cleaning up after people or maybe you are a mom of a couple toddlers and you carry guilt over not being able to serve right now – God has you exactly where you need to be in this season if life.
Do your job unto the Lord.
You are making a difference in the lives of others.
Colossians 3:23, NLT: “Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lordrather than for people.”
