This week, our posts are a bit shorter than normal.

The reason for this, is to allow you time to really think about your own life, examining changes you may need/want to make. My goal is to provide you with Bible Verses and guiding questions to help you discover how God can and WANTS to help you accomplish just that.

The Beans:

Hearing God’s Message to YOU:

Read today’s verse once … what word or phrase stands out to you?


Read the verse a second timeWhat part of your life (what circumstance, relationship, struggle etc.) is this word or phrase speaking to?

Pause to pray, write, or just think, before you read today’s verse a final time. 

The Verse:

Colossians 3:23

“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.”

The Steam:

What does all of this mean to me/how can I apply that to my life today?

We have to work. Whether you work out of the home or not, there are chores to be done, bills to get paid. But we’ve got to find a good balance.

While other cultures encourage their communities to “work to live,” here in America we “live to work.”

Who are you going above and beyond to impress?

How are you pleasing God through your work each day?

You don’t have to work in ministry to keep God as the focal point of your workday.

Do you pray about the projects your working own, the people you work with?

When you’re stressed at work, what do you run to first?
