  • About a year ago, I was starting to get a liltte too comfortable with my workload. Being self-employed had put a number of demands on me I didn’t expect at first, but I was getting to the point where most of those demands were finally becoming automated or simplified. As a consequence, I had a lot of extra time on my hands I enjoyed this extra time at first, but then I began to feel lazy, like I wasn’t doing enough with the time I was given. The work I had available did not require me to work any harder than I already was, so I also started feeling that I didn’t have enough work, and that I was not making enough money.I finally decided to start praying about this rather than just feel badly about it, and the idea that really helped was to start looking as my life itself as my job, rather than just the work this small business was producing. From this point of view, I had a task to complete every moment of the day for my ONLY client, God. I began to use the free hours for prayer and study. I also found new opportunities to help others, and pretty soon other business ideas started developing ideas which didn’t make a lot of sense for me to develop at the time, but I was obedient in doing the, and they have led to other projects down the road.This was such a wonderful experience, and it really showed me a much more abundant view of life than I had been holding. I had so much more use than I previously thought!A few months ago, life had started to get a liltte too comfortable again, so I have been praying to be more aware at every moment of the work God is giving me to do. This radical act comes to me at a great time, and as a great reminder. Thank you all so much for sharing! I look forward to reading your ideas for living more abundantly thoughtout the summer. |
