How significant are the jobs we do?

That is the question. My question. Yesterday I pondered about the significance, the importance of what we do or don't do, the importance of our life. I questioned whether we actually know what we need, if we're on the path to obtain those needs, of if we discover what we thought is not really our needs after all. How do you determine what is ... and what is not?

I had no answers, only questions, and they were in abundance. I had speculations, but we shouldn't go there. Thinking about what if is not a place to go or be.

We need. To acquire, we work. Is it ever enough? We have to make a living. But at what price? Is more the answer? Is the status quo the way to go? Is what you have ever too much? Should you have less? Should you give it away or should you set high prices on an item to make more?

"... your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him." (Matthew 6: 8)

Once you reach the cross of Jesus, don't turn from it, don't return to your previous lifestyle. The journey is full of twists and turns, but the reward is worth the effort you make. Jesus ... the son of God -- He is the answer to all of our questions.


God is all sufficient. In Him we find all we need, all we will ever need.

Last night, my husband Jim was given notice that all private duty and IV nurses through St. Luke's Home Care department would lose their jobs effective April 18. The home care agency would be no more. Talk about dismal news.

This morning. ... feed on God's faithfulness to find the strength you need. I read Psalm 37.

Do not fret
nor be envious

Trust in the Lord
do good
feed on His faithfulness

Delight yourself in the Lord
Commit your way to the Lord

Rest in the Lord
wait patiently for Him

Do not fret

Cease from anger
forsake wrath

Do not fret

Depart from evil
do good

Wait on the Lord
Keep His way.

Stay faithful in the Lord.
