Uplifting Poems for the Working or Unemployed
Are you having a hard time at your job? We all have our horror stories to tell about working, but when it comes down to it we all work for the same Boss - God. Honor him by giving your job the best of you and going the extra mile. If you are unhappy there, then pray and ask God to Help you. Then wait. God may need you there to show someone unconditional love. We don't know what others are living with. Someone might be suicidal or have cancer or being abused or going through any type of heartache and God needs someone there to shine his Light through. Your job is where you go to earn money to pay bills and, if lucky enough, save for your future. That's where your job ends and your life as a follower of Christ takes over. We were placed on this earth to love one another. We all need encouragement and a feeling of self-worth. What better place to give that to someone else than a place of work? Do your job, but show love to coworkers and anyone you may talk to on the phone or in person. Let God's Light shine through you. Then watch God at work! Remember that God loves you and your coworkers, too.
So we say with confidence, "The Lord is my Helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?" Hebrews 13:6
For thou shalt eat the labor of thine hands: happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee.

It's purpose is to earn money so you can make a living. God is in control of everything so keep looking up and do what you can to honor his name.
And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men.
Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might, for there is no work or device or knowledge or wisdom in the grave where you are going. Ecclesiastes 9:10
