Psalm 37:5-6 [NIV] Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this: He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn, your vindication like the noonday sun.
A good workday. That means many things to many people. For some, a good workday is actually no workday – time off for vacation. For others, it is a workday free from stress. Still others view a good workday when certain tasks need not be done.
But shouldn’t we envision a bit more than just a good workday? After all, we are children of God. Shouldn’t we expect a perfect workday?
For me, a perfect workday doesn’t entail a vacation. It’s not necessarily stress-free. It may even include the most distasteful tasks. No, for me a perfect workday begins when I rise early and first thing, commit my thoughts, my actions, and my life to the Hand of God. Then I take on my workday with faith that His fingerprints will be all over it – as His righteousness shines through me to those in my workplace. It entails me trusting Him for protection and for peace with coworkers, supervisors, and those I serve.
It is my prayer that you and I will have more than just a good workday. I pray we will have a perfect workday – now and forever!
Good morning, God! I know You have my day already figured out. I commit to You, as I rely on Your grace and will in making this a perfect workday. Tonight, long after the setting of that noonday sun, I want to reflect and know You were with me in my workplace. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
