Recognizing When Your Heart Has Grown Faint In What You Do

“Though no one can go back and make a brand new start. Anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.” Carl Bard

Have you reached your potential at work? What about in your relationships? Are you the kind of dad, or mom, you want to be? Do you feel that you are lacking in enthusiasm for daily living?

If you are not, then what is holding you back? Why are you not giving what you do your all?

I remember my first job, filing for an insurance company. I was 16. I was excited to get the job but had my spirits dampened by full time employees who didn’t like my enthusiasm and how quickly I did my job.

I thought, “How does one stretch out a filing job for 8 hours? It just didn’t make sense.”

As I look back, I’ve come to realize there are some people who go to work, just to be going to work, to do as little as possible to get through the day. And there are others who go to work to give their all, commit to being a part of a team for the good of the whole.

Think about the job you are doing right now? Is it challenging you, pushing you to your highest potential? Have you gotten so complacent, you take off sick time, don’t want to go, or you are always be late?

If your potential is not challenged in what you do for a living, chances are you are carrying that same behavior over into everything else in your life. It could be evidencing itself as unhappiness, restlessness, laziness or lack of motivation.

Don’t get me wrong, jobs produce income and income provides for lifestyle. But is there a tugging on you to do more, to change directions, to stretch out?

So what is the solution? This is what changed my attitude toward whatever I find myself doing:
“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.” Colossians 3:23-24
As I apply this truth to all that I do I find an ever flowing stream of excitement, purpose and joy.

Let me know what you think.

Keep the faith,
