On Finding Fulfillment

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. 
Col.3: 23-24

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
