We all go through different seasons in life, and often the works God calls us to can and do change with our seasons.
At times this will mean giving up your dreams and opening your eyes to new things so you can and learning to find the beauty and be content with the season you’re in. At other times this will mean taking on more than you feel like you can bear. We need God’s grace in place.
Change can make us feel uncomfortable and confused. Whether it’s going back to work after having a child, staying home with children after working outside of the home, taking a lesser paying job, taking on more responsibility in your job, starting a business, or caring for a loved one – changes can be difficult to get through if we don’t see all of our works as part of the good we are called to do.
God wants us to look at our callings from His perspective and do everything as unto Him.
Colossians 3:23–24 says, Don’t look for your reward from others. Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord (who called you) you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.
When we work for material rewards and worldly success, we don’t always get back what we put in, which can leave us feeling disappointed.
However, God accepts and rewards the work we put into the things He called us to do – in marriage, raising our families, doing our jobs, growing our businesses, building our ministries and anything else we do with a servant’s heart and a good attitude.
Don’t allow the world or people who don’t understand how God is leading you, to define what success should look like for you. In every season, successfully walking out your calling is measured the same way – knowing the will of God for you and doing it. This, Beloved, is how you will receive your reward. so enjoy the journey and be happy now!!!
If you’ve ever felt lost and confused in your calling when things change, I invite you to join me and other women for Called Women’s Conference, in San Diego on January 6th, 2018!
Our mission is to call daughters to the heart of the Father, to make known the transforming power of His love acceptance and beauty, and to equip them to live out their calling successfully with confidence and authenticity through every season life.
