The Confident Woman Devotional - Day 7
Take Care Of Yourself And Asa did right in the eyes of the Lord, as did David his father [forefather].... Also Maacah his mother he removed from being queen mother, because she had an image made for [the goddess] Asherah. Asa destroyed her image, burning it by the brook Kidron. - 1 Kings 15:11, 13
I love getting things done. I love getting thing done and making people happy. I love getting things done and making people happy almost to the point it becomes about pleasing others & them being able to count on me more than anything else. When that happens, it's because I've lost focus on why I started what I was doing in the first place.
When I started working at Lululemon I wasn't sure what to expect. I knew the culture was great from the research I'd done in terms of the workplace environment, but it became so much more to me especially during this transition in my life as a newly-wed and new citizen to Atlanta. I can honestly say I've dived straight in and have become more passionate about the work I do because of the morale of shifting "mediocrity to greatness" in all that we do and not just on the floor.
Now that I'm more plugged into 4 Pointes Church, John & I have decided to serve the best we can with our gifts God has given us - be that music, production, etc. We've got a lot of work ahead of us.. such as building up solid relationships with our brothers & sisters in Christ but we pray that it will come in due time.
Lord, let me serve You wholeheartedly and be at peace with You before I take on more tasks that become a chore rather than a pleasure. I declare joy in the work I do because You give me freedom.
