"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28 (NIV)
It's so easy to get caught up in all the busy work. Our day jobs, the demands of others, errands to run and schedules to keep, the constant ping of emails and messages. They can all steal our time, our joy and our energy. I nearly let it happen to me again this morning when I opened up my work email. The agendas and urgencies of others almost derailed my plans for the day. Plans that had nothing to do with my role as an accountant. Plans that had everything to do with what I truly desire to do with my life. Today I must remind myself of my purpose. My passions. My goals. And that although the needs of others and the need to serve others is also important, I must remember that God has called me to a much greater purpose than what is being demanded of me today. So I will give priority to what God has placed in my heart through his good and amazing grace. This is my true life's work. The work that will ultimately glorify God and please him.
Lord, I pray for the strength and wisdom of the Spirit to move me and guide me as I make a new way in my life. Your way. As you have intended for me. In Jesus name, Amen.
