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.
It's not as much what we are doing
as who we are doing it for
that brings contentment/fulfillment
So it begs the question;
What are we doing for Who?
This gal is working at next Christmas's wish-list...
(only 11 mos. less a day to go!!😊😉)
We all have wish-lists, don't we?!
How far are we willing to go for who?
The ladder to success and happiness
Is foiled by flaws and failures of the flesh
Enmeshed in plans and dreams so dearly plied
Is a force to be reckoned with, called pride
And no matter how high our hopes might climb
Or where our dreams may lead if given time
The chase that we embrace is not enough
To fill that place God reserved for His Love...
…to love Him with heart, soul and strength and mind
So few it seems, life truest success find
For He does not cater to wish and whim
The Creator made us to honor Him
And so, until we do the heart will cry
And nothing will fulfill or satisfy
This world will seem a feckless trek to death
Until we learn to rev’rence ev’ry breath
And recognize life’s sacred gift from He
Who lends its lease of brief mortality
Where we will find fulfillment only when
We labour for the Lord and not for men
Sooner or later everyone must choose
Who they will serve and thus, who they refuse
If we choose God then all we do will be
An expression of awed humility
