We were designed to work

Watching the rugby France are ahead and they deserve to be to be honest but I have a short attention span and wanted to whip open the laptop. I don’t have a laptop it belonged to my previous job and so stayed with that job. Not so long ago it annoyed me. The lack of laptop and the lack of getting one. It was a lifestyle I was accustomed to and enjoyed. Thank goodness on reflection that my value and identity are in Christ!

Jesus and his disciplesThis last couple weeks at work have felt turbulent but have been really good. Eden to eternity is awesome it was great to play a tiny bit shooting some pics. It also gave a sense of purpose for those few days. I was contributing something that would count it was great. Then this week start meeting with my boss who has been very occupied with the tour to start working our what I can be doing for him. I have picked up a couple things and you know it was great to have some work to do. I’m nut great at doing nothing it is true but I felt dealt released to get on with some stuff. Maybe it is the morning exercise or the eating healthy maybe it is everything. But feeling good!

It the midst of my suffering I was Reading some Bible, Eden to eternity inspired me to reflection on creation. You know I found, we were designs to work. That Is part of God’s design for us. WOW. Never really thought about that before. No wonders there is so much depression and struggle when people are unemployed. It goes beyond the initial and obvious financial struggles in to a lack of self worth simply because we are not fulfilling a basic part of our designed purpose.

I have often wondered what was so attrarive about gardening, mans first job! First jobs often hold a special place in our heart.  I’m still not a huge fan!
