Archive for the ‘My Beautiful Calling’ Category

Yes, you read it right. I am a princess! A daughter of the King of kings, royalty, joint heirs with Christ. I’ve got a mansion waiting for me. I wonder if it is pink? Maybe you’re a princess too – that would make us princess sisters! I am following the series It’s a Real Job and last week was about your job description.

Give me some time and I could probably expand upon this list. I’m sure you could too. I agree with Brianna – it is a real job, and a big one.

It may seem to pay poorly and sometimes there are no apparent or immediate rewards. We must be faithful and persevere because each and every task done for right reasons and with the right attitude and, of course, with the right focus, has eternal benefits for us and our loved ones!

When we get overwhelmed by our huge job description (just look at it!) we need to remember that
He gave us the job in the first place. He’ll give us all we need to succeed!
