Commit your works to the Lord, and your thoughts will be established. – Proverbs 16:3
It disappoints me when my hard work is thrown away. I sometimes work with people who change their minds a lot. It wastes their time and mine. It drains me to think how wasteful this recurring problem is. I have to be careful what I take on and who I let drain my energy.
When we commit our work to the Lord and stop trying to please people, our work takes on more meaning.
Our work is not meaningless when we devote it to the Lord. He has a greater purpose for us. When we feel exhausted, we need to stop and whisper His name. He will redirect our thoughts. He will bring peace to our minds and meaning to our work.
Time with family is never wasted. It is our most important work to teach our children to love the Lord. Amen.
