Welcome to “Sunday Inspiration,” a bi-weekly devotional for those seeking spiritual encouragement in the pursuit of their passions. I hope these posts from various resources will inspire and motivate you in your life and career in addition to paNASH’s weekly original career posts. Enjoy!
Most clients come to me looking for a career change because they’re tired of the toil and burden of their current job. They’re looking for a job they love and look forward to going to every morning.
I’m all about helping people find work they love. However, I have to also help them be realistic by explaining they’ll never find a job they 100% love 100% of the time. And of course they understand and know this. You know it too.
Why? Because we all know we’re living in an imperfect world. A fallen world.
But if you look at when work was originally created, before the fall of man, it was done in a perfect world. It wasn’t stressful, straining, toilsome, or burdening. It only became toilsome after the fall.
So when we finally reach Heaven and the day when this world will be restored to how God intended it to be, we will still work, but it will be a joy instead of a grind. Some of us will also have new and different jobs because the jobs that are required in an imperfect world will become obsolete in a perfectly restored world.
This is explained further in a recent sermon I listened to entitled, “What Will Work Be Like in Heaven?” If interested in learning more about this spiritual concept, I invite you to take a listen and meditate on what you gather from the topic. It certainly is an encouraging word in a very discouraging time.
