Gracious God, there are times when I love my work, times when it challenges me and gives me an opportunity to use my gifts. And, of course, it helps to pay the bills!

But there are other times, times when my soul is downcast at work, times when I feel so disturbed and discouraged. Sometimes, Lord, I don’t even want to get up in the morning to come to work.

What ought I to do in those sorry times? Self-talk doesn’t get me very far. Neither does looking on the bright side. Duty will get me out of bed, but it doesn’t stir my heart or lift my burden.

O Lord, I need to put my hope in You. I need to turn to You, to open my heart, to pour out my sadness, to hold nothing back from You, for You Know ALL things, Father, Iopen my heart and pour it all out before You. I need to remember Your abiding faithfulness, Your amazing grace. You have plans for me that I may not understand, but Your plans are always the best (Jer 29:11). No matter what happens in my work, nothing in all creation can separate me from Your Love (Rom 8:39).

As I put my hope in You, Lord, help me to praise You, to exalt You once again as my Savior and my God. You are there for me, Lord. You’re always in my corner. Thank You! Amen.

Ponder Throughout the Day

Put your hope in God, even at work.

For Further Reflection

Read all of Psalm 43, paying attention to what The Spirit of God is stirring up in your heart, especially in relationship to your work. Talk with God about what you are thinking and feeling.

Hallelujah!!! Amen.


Challenges, but..




As we rise…


Father, thank You for another day to live and bless Your Name. I choose to pray without ceasing, to honor You, acknowledge You and follow Your leading. Keep me close to You today as I keep my heart and mind on You in Jesus’ name. Amen 1 Thessalonians 5:17

Praise The LORD!!! O my soul and all that is within me praise His holy Name 🙌


God gave you breath to breathe. He woke you up this morning. He told your heart to beat. He is The One that sustains you.

When you have the right perspective, it is AWESOME. God has protected you from things you know nothing about. The disappointment, the loss, it may not have been easy, but you are still standing, still healthy, still blessed. If it had not been for The goodness of God, where would you be? Sometimes you build an altar simply for the fact that you’re still here. The enemy couldn’t finish you off. You may be up against some big obstacles, but God is saying, “Am I not The God that parted the Red Sea? Am I not The God that closed the mouths of lions? Am I not the God that gave Sarah a baby at ninety? Am I not The God that has brought you this far, that has protected you, promoted you, favored you, made ways where you didn’t see a way?”

In a world that changes from moment to moment…

In a world where new challenges face us every day…

Does God change too?

Can we really trust that He will be the same today and tomorrow?
