Jesus in the Workplace

Before I go on, I would like to give a quick shout to all my readers, followers, and subscribers by email. You all are awesome.

My guess is that many readers will be offended by my chosen title on first glance. While I have not put this up to offend anyone, I recognize and accept that I inevitably will. Then again, this is my blog, a sort of personal space.

And now, speaking of personal space, I must mention that I have a bit of a problem. I find that I have recently become a “touch magnet” – if you will – for some people. I first noticed this when my engagement ring came off my finger just over a year ago. Apparently, some people took that to mean that inappropriate touching was welcome, seeing that I was suddenly single again. I recall being not so subtle about my disapproval of this new trend at my last job. Continue reading Jesus in the Workplace

Wildfires!

These California wildfires though.

Is there anyone besides me who believes there might be a more effective way to get these fires under control? (Show of hands, please.) I mean – we have the records of what times of year these fires typically occur. We know the weather forecast histories for previous wildfires. These things are in the news all the time.

“Mr. J will go to Heaven”

My first encounter with Mr. J was in junior high, called junior secondary school in my country. I was in JSS 2 (grade 8) and my school was test-running an after-school program at the time. Mr. J was to cover for our English teacher on the day of the said encounter.

You might have heard a pin drop when Mr. J walked into the classroom. He had on a look that appeared, to me, to be almost as menacing as it was mocking. He wiped down a desk and, after setting his books on it, turned to attack the chalkboard, wiping off everything that was written on it. Next, he wrote the course title and the topic for the day. Finally, he turned to face the class, introduced himself, and announced the topic loudly: “Effective Communication.” Continue reading “Mr. J will go to Heaven”

Day 7: The Lord is my light

The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?

Psalms 27:1

I wanted to share this verse today as it is one of my favorite passages to read. It is a reminder whenever I am afraid, undecided, weak, and more. God is my light, and He is my strength. Amen.

Please enjoy the song below by the young and talented Walls Group.

Much love.

Day 6: What’s on your mind?

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable—if there is any virtue and if there is anything worthy of praise—dwell on these things.

Philippians 4:8

Much love.

Day 5: Rest in the Lord

Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him…

Ps 37:7

It is difficult to enjoy the rest that God daily provides us when we become preoccupied with worrying, complaining, judging others, and the like. I encourage you to rest in the Lord today. Amen.

Much love.

Day 4: A Grateful Heart

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

Gratefulness is one of the best ways to achieve a merry heart and, as we well know, a merry heart does wonders (Proverbs 17:22). In a day and time when complaining has almost become second nature, we must remember to give thanks even for the little things.

Much love.
