Life unfolds in everyday, ordinary things. We call them “happenstance and circumstance.” Of course, it’s not always neat and clean. But if you stop long enough to consider what is taking place, you quickly realize that (somehow) God is in the middle of it all.

That’s because …

  • Nothing ever happens in isolation.
  • Nothing ever happens without something happening before it.
  • Nothing ever happens that leads to nowhere or nothing else.

AND NOTHING EVER HAPPENS THAT SURPRISES GOD.

MAKE A PLAN …

Something is going to happen today. You can count on that! You might even want to plan for it too. But what would you plan for? What’s going to happen?

The Bible tells us that we all need to have a plan. Planning is actually a very good thing. But Scripture also cautions us that we should give those plans over to God (Prov 16:3).

Our plan should always include letting God guide our footsteps. God knows the way because He is the Way (Jn 14:6).

INCLUDE YOUR WORK …

We were made in the image and likeness of God (Gn 2:15). He is a working God who is at work even now in your life. Your life’s plan should always include meaningful and rewarding work.

Expect your life’s work to have a spiritual component of its own. If you miss this point, life will never really make much sense to you. The spiritual component of your life’s work is called the “Spirituality of Work.”

Understanding the “Spirituality of Work” helps us learn to integrate what we do most days (our job) with the rest of those really important things that define our lives. Life and work really are inseparable!

WORK-LIFE BALANCE …

One of the most common complaints in the world today is the lack of balance  between the work we do and the life we want to live. This is called “work-life balance.”

Without addressing the “Spirituality of Work,” perpetual imbalance is almost certain. That’s why the “Spirituality of Work” is such a big part of what we do here at the VOCATION WORKS web site.

ABOUT OUR TEAM …

Our team has worked in the field of career development and advisement for many years. We’ve trained tens of thousands of career specialists, equipping them to help others solve job and career issues.

We’ve also spent decades in Christian ministry. What we’ve seen is that the workplace has a significant impact on nearly every aspect of a person’s existence. And unless we get that part of our lives right, it will always appear as if God is some distant Being who doesn’t care very much. Life won’t make much sense either.

LET’S GET STARTED …

It doesn’t have to be like that! The work you do can integrate very nicely with your family and the life you want to lead.

Look around the VOCATION WORKS web site. We’re keeping it pretty simple by design. Believe it or not, you can keep your life pretty simple too!

You’ll find most of our information on the “Career Goodies!” blog. And we’re sharing a lot of the key information on our social media sites too, so follow us on social media too please.

A SPECIAL REQUEST …

Pray for your family and friends today. Pray for your workplace,  your co-workers, and your customers. And take your faith everywhere you go (Faith@Work)!

That’s how we’ll start our journey together. In Christ!

Work Matters

Your work matters as much to God as it does to you. If you are a follower of Jesus Christ, in many ways, you are also a partner with God in His salvific and redemptive work.

LOOKING AHEAD …

In this section of our website, we’ll explore the “spirituality of work.” In particular, we’ll examine it from the perspective of:

  • The workplace.
  • The workforce.

Both the workplace and the workforce are important factors in seeing beyond the fog of the “daily grind” and gaining deeper understanding of the truth behind the work we do.

The “spirituality of work” is an important topic that affects all of our lives!
