But at the same time I hold the title of janitor. Due to our economy and the fact that my husband is no longer working, I can also be found cleaning a medical office 5 nights a week.
Along with those two titles I am also wife, mom, nana, sister, daughter, auntie, friend, ministry leader, teacher, etc, etc, etc.
So what's in a title? Nothing, well nothing as important as the following scripture.
Whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Colossians 3:17
You can be sure that I have not mastered the above verse however God continues to develop His character within me and fine tune my attitude while honoring Him in all I do and say.
Whether I'm cleaning a toilet, playing with my grandchild, speaking to the governor or rooming a patient, I must always remember that I am to do it all for His glory not mine.
What about you? Where are you in your life today? Do you feel you don't have purpose? Do you feel like all you do is wash dishes, do laundry or clean up after people? Does your job lack a certain title that you have always wanted?
Be challenged and encouraged today: Whatever your title or lack of title - live a life that is pleasing to the Lord. In all you do or say - do it in name of the Lord.
Considering All Titles Joyful,
