what you do VS who you are

As a recently laid off Christian Education Counselor and teacher – I find myself with some time for reflection. Oswald Chambers mentions that as Christian workers it is not so much what we do (the activity or occupation we are involved in) but who we are that is important. The important focus is our walk with God and the atmosphere created by that relationship. The obvious result here will be that we bring the sweetness of Christ wherever he chooses to put us – even if we don’t work in a church. This is a kind of free translation of what Christ said when he instructed his disciples not to rejoice in good work – but that their names are written in heaven, and they are rightly related to Him. I am not unemployed – I am self employed, I suppose, and wondering where God will bring me next… and believe it or not – as happy as I have ever been in my entire life.

agreed…

If thou wouldst have me speak, Lord, give me speech.
     So many cries are uttered now-a-days,
     That scarce a song, however clear and true,
     Will thread the jostling tumult safe, and reach
     The ears of men buz-filled with poor denays:
     Barb thou my words with light, make my song new,
     And men will hear, or when I sing or preach.

– George Macdonald

well – my music work is experiencing some delays as I am busy renovating the recording space…it will be very cool when done (will try to get a photo or 2 posted) I am also upgrading my recording set up and, new RAM, new soundcard, new software…this is all part of the upside – with the downside being I am not having updates on tunes for the moment, talk soon.
