I read my 20 year old daughter, Abby's blog about the sign in the grass that said "Don't step on me I"m growing". She wished she could wear a sign like that also. How cute and philosophical is that! So I started thinking a little deeper just for a moment.
I recently read a book written by a Psychiatrist which consisted of 30 truths he had discovered in his life experience. I agreed with some and thought he was looney at other times. I decided that I would write my own personal truths (when I figure them out).
So this is my "Jesus Wants Me for a Sunbeam" truth.
In church, I have occasionally had jobs that I just don't care for, or jobs that are really time consuming or isolating. I struggle and struggle and find myself complaining and not enjoying church or the job or life in general. I often think of moving to get released. I am currently the Junior Primary and Nursery Chorister. Yes, it was "one of those jobs".
I dreaded Sundays, until one week I looked into the eyes of one of the kids and saw how much he was enjoying the music that I was so bored with. I had a Eureka! moment when I realized I had the power to help those children LOVE primary music. I started researching how children learn and every week I look into the eyes of those kids and love what I am doing.
Any way, the truth is, if you have a job you hate, chances are you will keep getting that job again and again, until you learn to love it. If you learn to love it, it doesn't matter if you get released or not, you will be happy.
