Bossy Pants

Suck it up, Buttercup. 

Life isn't always fair, so accept that now with grace. God doesn't promise by loving and abiding in Him that it's going to be smooth sailing. We perform to the best of our ability at our earthly jobs and our ordained purpose not due to what we'll get out of it but because of what we've already been given- the free gift of eternal life (Romans 6:23).

Some days frankly just stink! We never know what the day is going to bring and we can either face it in fear or in trust. Proverbs 29:25 says, "The fear of man brings a snare, But he who trusts in the LORD will be exalted."

When you find it difficult to do your job, uphold a commitment, or just get through the day remember, "Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men," (Colossians 3:23). You make it with strength from the Lord, not by your own strength, avoiding your problems, or  the "fake it till you make it" ideology. 

I know this is easier said than done, but the quicker you turn to joy versus stew in your troubles, the lighter you will feel.

"…that through endurance and through the encouragement of scriptures we might have hope. May the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to live in such harmony with one another." -Romans 15:4b-5.

Now go put your big kid pants on, love others and do work.

By changing a few items the outfit can turn from work attire to evening ready! Change your shoes, add some accessories, put that hair up in a messy bun and voila.
