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,
Cindy, you and I are on the same wavelength today. I too wrote about serving the Lord with greatness, but not seeking greatness.ReplyDelete
May all I do and say be pleasing in His sight,
You are such a beautiful woman of God! Keep living like it my friend...know that I love you and am covering you in prayer...and remember your most important title..."Daughter of the King"ReplyDelete
This is great encouragement, Cindy. You are a blessing.
As always, I always get encouragement from reading your blog! This is just what I needed to hear today. Thank you for being you!ReplyDelete
I've always tried to remember this Scripture no matter what the job. When I worked as a nurse in a hospital, I wasn't afraid of getting my hands dirty and helping out. And I can't count the times I drove patients to the hospital when I worked in cardiology practice. Now that I'm working from home with my husband I still try to always keep that in mind.ReplyDelete
Well said. Thanks for your encouraging words.ReplyDelete
I do find myself in a spot where I don't feel any real purpose with no husband, no children, no pets, no huge responsibilities or things to care for.
Something to ponder.
I should be content with just being the child of the King.
This spoke straight to the core of my heart. It is a reminder I needed and didn't even know it! lol! Sometimes being a mom at home opens the door for the enemy to whisper that what I do on a daily basis isn't important, but you remind me that anything I do for God is of consequence.ReplyDelete
