Career Pearls

  • What ever you are practicing today will yield your tomorrow.
    • Colossians 3:17 and 25
      • (17) And whatever you do, in word or in deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.
      • (23) Whatever you do, do it enthusiastically as something done for the Lord and not for men, (24) knowing that you will receive the reward of an inheritance from the Lord. You serve the Lord Christ. (25) For the wrong-doer will be paid back for whatever wrong  he has done, and there is no favoritism.

These scriptures have helped me with my career, with ministry, and even with relationships. I was working for this one doctor, who everyone would ask me why are you working so hard for him? I would recite this scripture to them. I had it posted in my office so every time I would be frustrated, I would read this scripture out loud. I knew God had placed me at that clinic at that time for a reason. Administrative changes took place year after year and God was still keeping me put. Then one year the new “owners” took noticed that the work load was not being shared. To make a long story short, he was fired and I was promoted to his position. God had me going through those season, not because He did not hear my cry but because He needed me to learn what the other doctor job entitled. He was giving me training for the position He was preparing for me. He needed me to learn what not to do. We all have or will have a boss that we do not agree to their methods of management but the goal and lesson with every job is to do your job 100% no matter of the circumstance and learn for the current situation so that God can use it to grow you as an individual. It’s a lot easier to learn from others mistakes then to be the one that make the mistakes and learn from it.  And by the same token, it’s a lot harder to work 100% if there’s no guarantee that you will be rewarded, but it makes it so much more worth it cause you did it out of faith for something bigger than just the reward.
