Working for God

It’s occurred to me over the years that working for God doesn’t mean you have to be a religious leader.  I believe that when you are living life with love in your heart, you are working for God.

It doesn’t matter if you are a Writer, Artist, Reiki Master, Custodian, Pilot, Firefighter, Librarian, Teacher, Secretary, Clerk, Cashier, President, Spouse, Parent, Bus Driver, Truck Driver, Factory Worker, Designer, Student, Photographer, Actor, Computer Guru, Manager, Nurse, Doctor, Engineer, etc. as long as you have love in your heart for God, us humans and all beings; then you are working for God.

How do you know if you are truly working for God?  Do you feel a sense of peace from head to toe and deep down to your soul? When you are on the way to work are you thinking how happy you are and how much you are looking forward to being of service today?

If you are not feeling IT, and you are thinking on the way to work how much you are dreading today. Do not worry not all is lost.  You do not have to change jobs. You can if you must, but it isn’t necessary; just change your attitude.  The same job you are tolerating and just doing to get a paycheck can become working for God.  It all starts with your own personal feelings.

Find something you like about your job.  First on the list could be that you receive money for just showing up and being there.  A paycheck, that’s something to be grateful for. Then look at your coworkers, find something about each one of them that you like. Even the co-worker you just cannot stand has something about them that is good.  Perhaps at this point the only good you can see, is that they are stubborn no make that determined.

I know this works, because I have used it in my own life.   If you have other tips we can use, I would love to know.  Please share your wisdom and leave a comment.

Life is good!  God is great!  All is right in my world!




While I Was Resting

The last couple days have been physically tough ones, due to a two-hour stint in a metal folding chair and of course pushing myself to walk, walk, walk.  While I was resting aka recovering I noticed that my stats clicked over the 1,000 mark in the total number of views.  This makes my heart sing!  Thank you so much for coming by and checking out my blog.

Comments are wonderful, please keep them coming.  I have just over 100 comments on my 31 posts; this one will be 32.  Woo-hoo!   I’m doing a little dance while I sit here with my feet soaking in ice water, because this just tickles me that not only do I have readers, I have readers from around the world, who are willing to stop by and chat.  Awesome!

I’m also happy with myself.   When I started this blog, my goal was to post no more than once a day.  I have been able to do this except the one day, when I was so happy and feeling so good that I couldn’t focus.   Notice that my goal is more of a “get to” than a “have to” feeling behind it.  I feel it is easier to meet goals if I feel like I get to do something rather than I have to do it.

I am grateful for having readers, followers and commenters.   I hope you felt the joy I feel when I wrote each post and that you were able to take in the joy and spread it among those you know.    I feel joy expands as it spreads.

Life is good!  God is great!  All is right in my world!

I am Grateful

As I sit here writing this post my feet are in a bucket of ice water, because they are so swollen from walking – I am grateful.  I am so grateful I can walk.  I am grateful that I am finished with using a wheelchair.  I am grateful that I had a wheelchair when I needed it.  It was such a blessing; recently, I passed that blessing on to someone else.  I am grateful for being in the position to bless another.

No matter the situation I find myself in, I look for the blessing in it. Sometimes I do not understand why something has happened, but I do know there is a reason and that reason is a blessing.   I am grateful for the ability to find the blessings and/or have the knowledge that there is a blessing in this even when I cannot see it.

When I’m having a hard day, I stop and quickly write down what I’m grateful for that day.  I always number the list, because it makes me happy to have a count of my blessings. I usually use a small piece of scratch paper, then fold it up and place it in my pocket.   Throughout the day, I pull out my gratitude list and read it.  It always makes me feel better.

Have you counted your blessings lately?  What are you grateful for this day?

Life is good! God is great! All is well in my world.
