It's interesting - and almost tragic - that many people still don't realize or fully embrace that God chose you for something special. Indeed, He placed you on this planet for a specific purpose. And believe it or not, it's connected to your vocation. Although you may not like your job currently, or you have not yet have found the thing that gets you excited to get out of bed Monday mornings ( or any morning), His plan for you is connected to the work that you do now and will do in the future.
In Mike Wittmer's recent article at The High Calling Blog recently entitled, Designed to Work: What Do You Make Possible?, he discusses the significance of the connection between our work and God's plan of redemption for our world. He states:
What task has God called you to do? It might be menial, and it might be hard. Maybe you’re having a rough shift right now. If so, God has given you a golden opportunity. Can you describe what your job makes possible? How do you enable others to make something of the world? Answer these questions, and you will find God’s purpose in your job. You will know that you are serving Jesus and obeying the first command he ever gave you (Col. 3:17; 23-24; Gen. 1:28).
So whether you love your job or hate it, just remember God wants to use it to change you and the people that He connects you to through the work you do. Ask God to give you a new perspective of your work so you can jump on board with His plan.
