Freewriting: Vision

A person without a vision will never reach their intended destination. Vision is what separates the successful from the unsuccessful. It helps you attain believable goals on a daily basis as you march toward the completion of your dream. It keeps you motivated during rough times. Those without vision wander through life aimlessly. Grab a vision for yourself and begin working to make it happen.


Freewriting: Work

Today was an exceptionally good day at work. It didn’t start out that way. Not that it was a bad one by an means. It was just a little blah. Kind of boring. Kind of difficult. Kind of just there. But then it got much better toward the end when I got the opportunity to run an errand with one of my favorite coworkers. It was nice to spend some time with them away from the desk. Actually, I prefer just about any activity that gets me away from my desk.

Overall, it’s been a good work week. I seem to have a better grasp at handling certain situations than I did even a week ago. I’ve noticed that I’m being asked to do more things outside of my comfort zone. Often times it doesn’t feel good, but I have to remind myself that it’s helping me to develop into a more well-rounded employee.

One of the coolest things to occur this week was an impromptu men’s meeting. In an office of over 20 employees, only six of us are men. It’s rare that we’re all together in one place. All but one of us gathered around my desk to have a nice chat about our experiences as married men. It was so fun that I’m thinking we need to schedule some guys time every week. Lol.

On last Friday I found out that I didn’t get a library position I interviewed for a month ago. I wasn’t terribly upset. Over the last couple of weeks I’ve come feel something of a renewed sense of purpose at my job. Apparently, not getting the job is a sign that God has something better in store for me and the work on my current job isn’t quite finished yet. I’m good.

I’m looking forward to the challenges that await me on tomorrow.



Daily Reflection: Work Your Gift


Everyone is born with a unique talent, or gift, from God. Some people instinctively know what they’re meant to do at a young age. Others become more aware of it as they progress through life.

Your gift could be something you utilize on the job or do outside of work for fun.

If you’re unsure about what your gift is then pray to God for understanding. Ask him to reveal it to you as clearly as possible. Or you can ask your parents or close friends. They often see things in you that you may not notice, both good and bad.

Another key to figuring out your gift is to think of what really irks you. If you constantly feel yourself bubbling with anger at a certain issue, then perhaps you were put on earth to fix it.

Whatever your gift is, use it to glorify God. In turn, God will make sure to elevate you to the top. Proverbs 18:16 reads, “A man’s gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men.”

Once you come to the realization of what your gift is, use it with all your heart. Work at it as if you’re a man or woman possessed. God bestowed this gift upon you and it’s up to you to use it in a way that will help others while simultaneously advancing his kingdom.
