“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters” – Colossians 3:23 (NIV)
In even the most inherently rewarding vocation, there can be weariness, setbacks, trials and days that are hard to face. But I’ve found one of the most instantly uplifting and motivating things I can consider in this state is simply the mental reminder that I can do this for Him, and that changes everything.
For some reason I’m reminded of Jacob, who “…served seven years for Rachel, and they seemed to him but a few days because of the love he had for her” (Genesis 29:20 ESV). When we consider Him, no burden can ever be too great – not even a Monday.
