Life is hard work. What God has given you to do is hard work. It is valuable and important but God never promised it would be easy.
How you do your work is what will change the experience of it from stress to passion.
“If you preach, just preach God’s Message, nothing else; if you help, just help, don’t take over; if you teach, stick to your teaching; if you give encouraging guidance, be careful that you don’t get bossy; if you’re put in charge, don’t manipulate; if you’re called to give aid to people in distress, keep your eyes open and be quick to respond; if you work with the disadvantaged, don’t let yourself get irritated with them or depressed by them.
Keep a smile on your face. Love from the center of who you are; don’t fake it.” (Romans 12:6-10 MSG)
Whatever God has given you to do:
-do it from the heart
-don’t add on worldly expectations
– let God have the stress
– ask God for the passion
If you are feeling stressed, ask God to show you why you are where you are.
Then smile and get to work.
