Serve

In all the work you are doing, work the best you can. Work as if you were doing it for the Lord, not for people. Colossians 3:23

Dogs do pretty much the same thing everyday. My dogs lay around, go for a walk, eat some food, chase a squirrel, bark at a cat, then go to bed. That’s pretty much 95% of their days. What is always surprising to me is how much they love to do the same things. My dogs are excited to eat breakfast, happy about lying around in the sun or on the couch, love their daily walk, can’t wait for vermin to be in the yard, hate the neighborhood cat with a passion and then cap of the day with a snuggle before bed. I rarely look at the new day with fresh eyes. My dogs greet me at the door as though they haven’t seen me in months every time I come home. My dogs treat going for a walk like it’s the first time they’ve ever been let outside. It makes me wonder how much my dogs must truly hate baths, it’s the only thing they don’t do with excitement.

When I’m confronted with the feeling that my days are beginning to all look the same I’m reminded that I’m not doing the same tasks at work for my boss I’m doing it for the Lord. I don’t need to fold the same laundry or eat the same dinner with listlessness, I can thank God for the things that he’s continually put in my life.

Dear God, 
You’ve put everything in it’s place. You know what my days will hold and I will love them because you planned them for me.
