you can be generous on every occasion, and
through us your generosity will
2 Corinthians 9:11: 11
Yesterday was a busy day at work for me, deadlines all over the place. I was joking with a colleague and asked why they call these time lines 'deadlines'. If the lines are dead why do they want us to revive it? Why it is not called 'Live Lines'? We pondered and had a good belly laugh.
However, on my way home yesterday and this morning as I prepared to go to work, I realised that despite all the ‘dead or live lines’ it is not a bad place to go into everyday to work. It is not a bad place to continuously practice the spirit of excellence and diligence.
Papa, today I say a big THANK YOU for my current work assignment and where I work. I am thankful because the location is not too far from home, church or the other places I need to be at.
I am thankful for the work I do because it reminds me that I am a 'solution implementer' and not an addition to the problem. I am thaankful because with your wisdom, I will do a good job and make an impact.
I am thankful because I have met some wonderful people who I know will be in my life for a long time to come.
I am thankful because it is profitable for me to work as your word declares in Proverbs 14:23 “All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty.”
I am thankful because even when people try to intimidate me or if the work seems daunting, you are always there to strengthened my hands “Nehemiah 6:9 "They were all trying to frighten us, thinking, "Their hands will get too weak for the work, and it will not be completed." But I prayed, "Now strengthen my hands."
I am thankful because on this assignment you have given and shown me quite a lot of opportunities and I pray that you continue to hold me by the hand and grant me wisdom help to develop them as you want me to and use them for your glory.
I am thankful that in this assignment you are teaching me how to work for you and not for man as you encourage in Colossians 3:23 “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men”.
So today dear Papa, I am thankful for my work assignment, where I work and the people that I work with. I am thankful for your wisdom that helps me to do the work effectively. I am thankful for the favour you have given me, with my bosses and my colleagues.
Father, I place my basket of thanksgiving and praise at your feet and I pray that it is sweet smelling and acceptable in your presence this very day.
Be glorified, honored and praised, in the name of Jesus Christ, I Praise, Thanks and Pray. Amen
