Work is something we all do. Whether it’s as simple as changing the toilet paper roll (if you do it) to working hours at a full time or part time job, some that pay and others that don’t like being a mom or dad. Anyway, I’m writing this post to encourage anyone who might be feeling overwhelmed by work. Work does not define you. People will put demands on you and you will have certain expectations of yourself. I encourage you to find time to count your blessings. It’s not always easy, but when you can focus on thankfulness, it helps you get through the difficult days. It can help you change what your dwelling on and lift you up. There is wisdom in persevering and wisdom in knowing when to quit or stand up for yourself. Don’t let yourself be abused. Don’t let work be your life. Ask God for wisdom on how to live a balanced life.
Lord I pray for all of the people who are reading this post. Holy Spirit, come and calm their hearts. Bring peace to stressful and chaotic situations. I pray for favor at their jobs and for opportunities for promotions and raises. Lord, I ask that people can feel your love and cling to the hope you bring. I need you God! You are near to the broken-hearted and tell us to come to you and lay our burdens at your feet. Take our anxieties and fears. Thank you for taking the weight of the world. We can’t handle it, but you can. I love you Lord!
In Jesus’ name, amen!
