Yesterday I got off work and rushed to work for production at my church. After running up the stairs, I was huffing and puffing.
Once we closed out, my pastor and production leader made it clear about a few things.
Right now we are in 21 days of prayer. Please take the time out to be in the presence of God. You are not obligated to be here. This is just another form of worship.
Working hard without the will of God is like riding a bicycle without the chain. You can pedal as fast as you want – but you need the chain to go somewhere.
At that moment I was like “I think he’s talking to me.”
My family has taught me to have a strong ethic and strive for excellence. Sometimes I forget to actually be in the moment. Without God what have I really accomplished in life? How far can I go? I don’t want the success and then realize it doesn’t mean anything because my spirit is not right.
So please take my experience as a note: work hard while honoring God.
